The City of Mississauga surpassed one million dollars in the opening weekend of spring/summer online registration. Active Mississauga.ca, the City’s new online registration mobile website opened registration on February 20 and exceeded one million dollars the next day.
“ActiveMississauga.ca is an innovative and new online interactive program guide that provides the same great experience whether you’re using a phone, tablet or desktop computer. We are excited to see residents embracing it to help them get out and get active,” said Shari Lichterman, Director, Recreation. “We registered more than 12,000 people last weekend – our highest total of any opening registration weekend to date.”
“It is remarkable to see how much technology has transformed the way we do business as a city,” said Shawn Slack, Director, Information Technology and Chief Information Officer. “Events such as the upcoming Code and the City open data hackathon and mobile applications such as MiWay Trip Planner, Mississauga Roads App and Pingstreet help demonstrate the City’s ongoing commitment to connect with our residents online to make services more convenient and efficient.”
