People's Choice Awards

You be the judge in this year's Mississauga Urban Design Awards - "People's Choice" Award
and help celebrate great urban design in Mississauga.


For more than a quarter century, the City's urban design award program has honoured outstanding projects in Mississauga.  These projects have achieved urban design excellence and have become prominent city landmarks, revitalizing our communities and changing our city's
skyline.

Great urban design is important - it contributes to the quality of life in our community, and identifies Mississauga as a great city.
 
Last year, the City introduced the "People's Choice" award - putting you on the jury panel of the Mississauga Urban Design Awards.

The overall goal of the "People's Choice" Award is to determine, in the public's opinion, which project's architecture, in the form of a building, landscape or plan, best helps to define our City and raise the profile of Mississauga.
