Some Region of Peel services will be transferring to the municipalities of Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon. This follows an announcement by the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing on December 13, 2023.

The City is preparing to take on these services currently offered by Peel:

  • Water and wastewater
  • Waste management
  • Land use planning
  • Regional roads

What this means for residents

Peel Region services you rely on today will continue. We are committed to continue to provide these services, like waste collection and water and wastewater, seamlessly during this transition.

Transferring some regional responsibilities to the City will minimize duplication of services and create efficiencies while still providing the necessary support to front-line service areas.

The provincially appointed Transition Board will help determine how regional services will operate in the future. We’re working closely with the province, Peel Region and other municipal partners in the Region to prevent any disruptions to these services.

We remain committed to providing exceptional customer service to residents and businesses. Get more information about services and programs currently offered by the City of Mississauga.

How the City is preparing

Mississauga is ready to expand its role as a local service provider. We have a proven track-record of strong financial management, exceptional leadership and extensive experience. City Council and senior leaders are working hard to ensure a seamless transition.

Peel Region and its employees provide excellent services to residents. These programs will continue after services are transferred to the City.

We will need highly qualified Peel employees to deliver these same services in Mississauga. We’re preparing to welcome Peel employees as we begin to deliver regional services locally. The following staff additions are just part of how we’re getting ready for a growing city staff:

  • Catherine Matheson, Commissioner of Municipal Transition

In July 2023, the Government of Ontario appointed a five-member Transition Board to oversee the dissolution process for Peel Region. That mandate changed in December 2023.

The new focus is to review and recommend the transfer of some services, like waste management, to the lower-tier municipalities, including Mississauga. The board’s ultimate goal is to get more housing built quickly while ensuring fairness for all cities, residents and employees.

The members of the Transition Board are:

  • John Livey, Chairperson
  • Tracey Cook
  • Eric Jolliffe
  • Sean Morley
  • Peter Weltman

We’re working co-operatively with the board to ensure continuity of service during the transition period and beyond. Representatives from Peel and the three municipalities have also formed specialized working groups to help guide the reallocation of services.


The Peel transition is a result of Bill 112, Hazel McCallion Act (Peel Dissolution), 2023, passed by the Government of Ontario. For more information on the act, read the legislation. Completed milestones of the transition include:

Our city, our future

Mississauga has evolved into a world-class city and destination. As we celebrate 50 years as a city in 2024, we’re ready to chart our own path.

The transfer of some regional services to the City of Mississauga is just the beginning of our path to independence. An independent Mississauga will benefit residents and taxpayers by:

  • Saving taxpayer money
  • Improving efficiency in the delivery of programs and services to residents
  • Eliminating duplication
  • Building housing more quickly to reach our provincial housing target

Mississauga has advocated for independence for many years. For more information on our efforts, please visit our archive page.
