The City of Mississauga is one of the most diverse cities in Canada. It is also considered one of the most diverse in the world with over 60% of residents identifying as visible minority (according to Statistics Canada 2021 Census).
To be a leader in supporting diverse communities and best serve their needs, the City is committed to Reconciliation with our Indigenous partners and advancing anti-racism, equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility for all who live or work in Mississauga.
We understand this process is ongoing and acknowledge we have a lot of work ahead to build and implement the strategies necessary for lasting change. This is why we are dedicated to transparency and will continue to share the City’s progress and response to equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI).
Learn how our City is acknowledging and responding to equity-related issues facing the diverse communities we serve, including our workforce, by creating responsive and inclusive policies, programs and services.
Through citizen committees, we hear directly from people who share in our commitment to creating change in our communities. These committees review and advise on policies to the Mayor and City Council, as well as provide important input on City programs and services.
Learn more about the City’s commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion by emailing EDI@mississauga.ca. We welcome feedback and input from residents, including community engagement efforts that help drive positive change.
