Regional Government Review


In January 2019, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing announced that it had appointed two special advisors, Ken Seiling and Michael Fenn, to review regional government in Ontario.

Mississauga is currently a member of the Region of Peel, along with the City of Brampton and Town of Caledon.

On March 27, Mississauga City Council adopted a motion, approving in principle, that Mississauga become independent from the Region of Peel as its preferred option, subsequent to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing's regional government review.

As the third-largest municipality in Ontario and sixth-largest in Canada, Mississauga wants to control its own future, similar to other cities such as London, Windsor, Guelph, Thunder Bay and Dryden.

The Town Hall provided residents with the opportunity to provide feedback to Mayor and Members of Council on this matter. A presentation overview was provided by Mississauga’s City Manager and Chief Administrative Officer, Janice Baker, followed by a question and answer session, facilitated by Mayor Crombie.
