Description: The Hon. John Black Aird, Lieutenant Governor for Ontario, arrives for the groundbreaking ceremony for the Mississauga Civic Centre, May 8 1984, and greets Mayor Hazel McCallion and members of Council. Members of Council were: Harold Kennedy, Ward 1; Margaret Marland, Ward 2; Rudy Skjarum, Ward 3; Larry Taylor, Ward 4; Frank McKechnie, Ward 5; David Culham, Ward 6; Dave Cook, Ward 7; Steven Mahoney, Ward 8; Ted Southorn, Ward 9. In 1982 the City of Mississauga invited Canadian architects to participate in a national architectural competition to select the architect and design for a new City Hall. 627 architects or groups of architects registered, from which 246 submissions were received. The winning design went to Jones and Kirkland and combined the administrative offices of City Hall with a civic square, great hall and public meeting rooms for citizens and civic functions. The groundbreaking ceremony for the new Civic Centre took place on May 8, 1984, and the building itself was officially opened by the Duke and Duchess of York on July 18, 1987.
