Mississauga asks the federal government

The City supports the federal government in programs that grow the local economy and help create jobs.

Mississauga continues to face significant financial pressures due to the lingering affects of the pandemic, inflation, global conflicts and supply shortages.

As part of the Government of Canada’s 2024 budget consultation process, we are requesting continued funding support to address the ongoing impacts of housing affordability, climate change, traffic and congestion, growth on city services, operating budgets, and other city building initiatives.

To make sure Mississauga continues to provide quality services, we are also seeking funding support and collaboration for the City’s top priorities and initiatives:

  • Remain committed to building affordable housing by providing continued funding for housing related infrastructure in Mississauga, to help us meet our housing targets
  • Work with municipalities and the province to develop a new, consistent funding program that supports cities in their goal of building strong, resilient communities
  • Work with the province to expedite and fully fund The Loop to connect downtown Mississauga to the Hazel McCallion light rail transit (LRT) helping Mississauga to be a truly transit oriented city
  • Maintain the federal government funding commitment and bring all-day two-way service to the Milton GO line
  • Support and work with the province to fund the detailed design for the Pearson Airport connection to facilitate planning, design and construction efficiencies with the current Eglinton Crosstown West Extension LRT project
  • Support and work with the province to fund the implementation of Downtown Mobility Hub and Transitway Connection
  • Support and work with the province to fund the Transit Project Assessment Process to plan for the next phase of the project
  • Provide financial support to fund the construction of a zero-emission transit garage estimated at $500 million
  • Provide federal funding to offset the cost premium of zero-emission buses
  • Provide support for ready-to-deploy fuelling infrastructure technologies
  • Create a separate municipal fund for hydrogen technologies in transportation
  • Fund incentives and programs for adoption of district energy and low-carbon technologies for buildings
  • Provide funding to support the tourism industry’s continued recovery, and policies and programs to address the ongoing labour shortage
