Garry Morden Centre

The Garry W. Morden Centre (GWMC) is a state-of-the-art, multi agency facility

that is home to Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services Training and Mechanical Divisions, City of Mississauga Information Technology Training, the Toronto Scottish Army Reserve Company and the Peel Regional Police. The facility has been designed to offer a number of diverse training opportunities for City of Mississauga Staff as well as outside agencies and private corporations.


The City's Fire and Emergency Services Division trains personnel in all aspects of fire suppression, hazardous materials, trench rescue and auto extrication and shares the centre with the Information Technology Department providing computer education for all City staff. Reservists from the Toronto Scottish Regiment, Canadian Forces have their own on-site facilities to train for domestic and international commitments while Peel Police take a realistic approach to driver training utilizing the unique outdoor circuit, modelled after residential streets and regional highways. Private rental opportunities in all aspects of emergency services and driver training are also offered at this state of the art, multi-use facility.

"Together, we will be able to share resources, identify commonalities and build relationships, while improving emergency response tactics and skills for the City of Mississauga and Peel Region", said Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services Chief John McDougall.

The GWMC is a tribute to the City's former Fire Chief Garry Morden, who championed the development of this facility and contributed much of his time and effort towards making this training centre a reality in his final years as Fire Chief. Chief Morden passed away in 2008. The centre was named in his honour.
