The 2015 Citizen Satisfaction Survey results are in and residents continue to give high marks to the City of Mississauga. The survey results indicate ninety five per cent of citizens are satisfied with Mississauga as a place to live. Mississauga also received top marks for overall quality of life and satisfaction with City services.
“Public feedback from the Citizen Satisfaction Survey confirms Mississauga residents enjoy an unrivalled quality of life, and are overwhelmingly proud to call our City home,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “This survey is just one of the many ways City Council makes an ongoing effort to engage local families about their priorities to help us build an even better Mississauga. We will continue to move forward with policy solutions that celebrate our rich diversity, invest in public transit, and deliver quality local services for residents of all ages.”
This year, the survey included a series of new questions asking residents about the City of Mississauga’s five strategic planning priorities: Move, Connect, Green, Prosper and Belong. The survey found that priority areas identified by residents aligned with the City’s strategic planning priorities.
“The survey allows us to better understand citizen perceptions on a wide range of topics,” said Janice Baker, City Manager and Chief Administrative Officer. “The results will help us identify focus areas and will guide the business planning process for the City in order to best serve the residents of Mississauga.”
Key findings include:
- 93 per cent of residents rate their quality of life in Mississauga as excellent or good
- the most appealing elements of the City are proximity to amenities, infrastructure and planning and availability of parks and green space
- 82 per cent of residents are proud to be living in Mississauga
