The City of Mississauga's Transportation and Works Department today accepted an award from
the Canadian Public Works Association (CPWA) for public works promotion during the 2011
National Public Works Week campaign in May.
"Our department was recognized for hosting public and school tours during National Public
Works Week," said Martin Powell, commissioner of Transportation and Works. "The tours
went a long way in educating residents about the importance of public works in their
communities. The campaign is another way of demonstrating how our infrastructure projects are
delivering on our strategic vision of being a walkable, connected neighbourhood that is
pedestrian and transit-oriented."
CPWA director Kealy Dedman presented the award to members of the Transportation and Works
Department during a presentation in the City of Mississauga's Council Chamber. The City won in
the category of Metropolitan Centres for populations of more than 650,000. This year marked the
City's 10th annual participation in National Public Works Week, a campaign that began in 1960
to increase public awareness of the importance of public works in community life.
