The City of Mississauga encourages residents to be aware of and consider issues impacting Mississauga when they vote in the Provincial Election this fall.

"The City of Mississauga is committed to helping residents understand our local issues, so they can be informed as candidates ask for their vote on October 6th," said Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion. "Mississauga City Council identified six key issues that impact Mississauga for consideration and we encourage residents to ask local candidates about these important municipal issues."

Mississauga City Council identified the following issues for consideration:

• Fund and Grow Public Transit
• City Building - Infrastructure Funding
• Interest Arbitration - Labour Costs for Emergency Services
• The Future of the Ontario Power Generation lands
• Post-Secondary Education Funding
• Air Quality - Clarkson Air Shed and Loreland Site

The City of Mississauga created a 2011 Provincial Election web page for residents with information on the City of Mississauga’s priority issues and links to organizations that support Mississauga's requests. The web page also includes a video message from Mayor McCallion, a list of candidates, and City Council-endorsed corporate reports and resolutions regarding the election.

As Canada's sixth largest city, Mississauga is home to 734,000 residents and 55,000 businesses, including 63 Fortune 500 companies with Canadian head offices or major divisional head offices. A diverse, progressive and award-winning municipality located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is "Leading Today for Tomorrow" by focussing on delivering services, implementing its Strategic Plan, delivering value for money, maintaining infrastructure and continuing to be an employer of choice.
