Nominees who qualify will be invited to receive their awards during a formal ceremony at the Mississauga Civic Centre on Tuesday, June 12, 2018.

Mississauga is an inclusive city that welcomes diversity and encourages residents of all ages and backgrounds to take part in civic life. Launched in 1992, the Civic Recognition Program recognizes outstanding achievements, community volunteers and important milestones. Youth volunteers and work that supports accessibility fit with the spirit of Mississauga and are deserving additions to the recognition program. The Civic Recognition Program also includes the Certificate of Recognition, the Civic Award of Merit and Civic Award of Philanthropy.
