I’m excited to work with the Mississauga team to reopen additional services for our residents permitted under Step One,” says Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “We know everyone has waited a long time for us to reach this milestone. I’m grateful to the team who will be working very hard over these next few days to safely reopen our outdoor pools, patios, outdoor fitness and much more. Thank you to the entire Mississauga community for doing their part by listening to the advice of public health and for getting vaccinated. It’s clear that these steps are working and I see a bright future ahead for our city.”
