Inspiration, Vision, Direction and Plan
In June 2007, Council initiated a project called Our Future Mississauga, and it was designed
to be a conversation - the most comprehensive conversation ever held in the city. This civic
conversation was divided into five phases, each building on and informing the next. The first
three - Reconnaissance, Inspiration and Vision - captured the initiatives and innovative
thinking already underway in Mississauga and gathered literally thousands more ideas. This led
to phase four, Direction, where we distilled the common themes heard during the outreach and
consultations into 18 Drivers for
Change. These, in turn, formed the basis of phase five, Plan: creating a Vision for the
city and updating our Strategic Plan. A comprehensive Community Engagement and
Directions Report, released in June 2008, summarizes the process.

people choose to be!
Annual Progress Report - Our annual Progress Report will be delivered to Council and the
community to help monitor progress and to keep the Plan on track. Progress Reports are an
