Mississauga asks the federal government

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

As we look to 2021 and beyond, Mississauga continues to face significant financial pressures resulting from COVID-19. As part of the Government of Canada’s 2021 budget consultation process, we are requesting continued funding support to the address ongoing impacts of COVID-19 on city services and operating budgets.

To ensure Mississauga builds back better, we are also seeking funding support and collaboration for the City’s top priorities and initiatives:

  • Infrastructure renewal, transit and active transportation projects
  • Major infrastructure projects
  • Mitigating the impacts of climate change
  • Building great places and amenities through key city-building initiatives
  • Closing the supply gap by funding and building more affordable housing
  • Kick-starting the local and national economy by supporting small businesses and other sectors hardest hit by the pandemic
  • Investing in existing and new programs for the tourism and cultural sectors
  • Keeping workers safe by providing adequate sick pay
  • Investing in innovation to jumpstart the economy and help entrepreneurs succeed
  • Financial supports for domestic and foreign direct investment
  • Recovery and growth of the air transportation sector
