Mississauga Receives Approval for Boundary Realignment

Dec 21, 2009

The City of Mississauga and the Region of Peel received approval from the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing to realign the municipal boundary between the Town of Milton and the Region of Halton, effective January 1, 2010.

“This new boundary will establish a more recognizable municipal boundary for the City of Mississauga and better serve our community,” said Mayor Hazel McCallion.  “Throughout the restructuring process, we worked with the Region of Peel to co-ordinate services to this area.  We welcome our new residents and we are working hard to ensure the transition is seamless.”

Restructuring of the municipal boundary will see Mississauga acquire a strip of land along the eastern boundary of the Town of Milton.  The area is bordered by Highway 401 to the north, Highway 403 to the south, Highway 407 to the east and Ninth Line to the west. 

“The Region of Peel and the City of Mississauga will continue to collaborate and deliver high quality programs and services to our growing communities,” said Regional Chair Emil Kolb.  “We welcome our new residents and look forward to serving them in the new year.”

The boundary adjustment will affect 25 residents in the Ninth Line Corridor.  These residents will move from Ward 1 in Milton and form part of Wards 8, 9 and 10 in Mississauga.

As Canada’s sixth largest city, Mississauga is home to 730,000 residents and 55,000 businesses, including 61 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 one of Greater Toronto's Top 90 Employers for 2010. Enhancing its citizens’ quality of life by providing superior services, revitalizing its infrastructure and conserving the environment, Mississauga is committed to innovation, operational excellence and fiscal responsibility which is reflected in its motto: “Leading Today for Tomorrow.”
