COVID-19: latest updates on the City's response and service impacts
Urban Design Awards


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.

Mississauga prides itself on ensuring that good urban design is a priority in all developments within the city. Urban design is the art of shaping the interaction between people and the places through the arrangement, appearance and functions of cities. It addresses the natural and built environments and influences the process that leads to successful cities. Or, more succinctly, how buildings fit together to make quality spaces.
