Update: Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, implementation of the 2020-2021 MiWay Student Ambassador Program was revised so that meetings can occur online, prizes can be distributed electronically (where possible), the addition of a tiebreaker activity (if required), to encourage Ambassador engagement and interactivity electronically, encourage continuous participation and to enable all activities to be completed online so the program is more accessible. View our 2020-2021 Program Rules and Regulations for details.

Who can apply

You must be a registered secondary school student at either a Mississauga Peel District Secondary School or a Mississauga Dufferin-Peel Catholic District Secondary School. You can apply as an individual or as a team of two. Only one individual or team will be chosen from each school.

The application period for the 2021-22 program will be from March 1 to April 30, 2021.

What an ambassador does

As an Ambassador, your role is to promote MiWay and help educate your peers about the benefits of public transit.

You’ll do different activities throughout the school year, like:

  • Attend online meetings
  • Create and share social media content
  • Produce videos and radio-style advertisements

Prizes and perks

You’ll earn points for each activity you complete throughout the year. The Ambassadors who earn the most points will earn prizes like e-gift cards, Apple® AirPods, or free transit for an entire year. You will also earn volunteer hours!

Ambassadors representing the top three schools will also be recognized at a Mississauga City Council meeting. All participating schools will receive pre-loaded PRESTO cards for students.
