The Mississauga Urban Design Awards program is the longest-running awards program of its kind in Ontario. From its inception in 1981, the awards program illustrates the City’s commitment to excellence and innovation in urban design with an ongoing desire to inspire, develop and celebrate design leaders who help raise the quality of life for its residents and shape the image of the City. This year, we are pleased to run a special Retrospective People’s Choice Award to honor all previous Award of Excellence winners from 1981 to the present.

Urban design is the art of shaping the interaction between people and the places through the arrangement, appearance, and functions of cities. It is about how buildings fit together to make quality spaces. It addresses the natural and built environments and influences the process that leads to successful, vibrant cities.

 The Urban Design Team promotes and influences urban design excellence in the City of Mississauga by providing professional multi-disciplinary advice to improve the quality of life at a City Wide scale for the general public, and internal stakeholders through studies, reports, engagement programs and the review of development applications.
