Background

Built in 1996, Iceland is an ice facility which has served residents of Mississauga and the surrounding community year-round for over 20 years.

Iceland Arena has been in high demand for various minor hockey associations, junior teams, tournaments and provincial championships. During the redevelopment project, Iceland Arena will be closed for an extended period of time as we plan to replace several systems and complete facility renovations to prevent major operation interruptions in the future.

Facility access during construction

Public use

The building will be locked at both the North and South entrances. No ice or floor rentals will be available to the public during the construction period.

Tenant use

Access will be provided to each of the tenants during the construction period. In addition, access will continue to be made to each of the tenants’ customers and/or staff during the closure period despite the arena not being in use by the general public.

Specific details will be shared with all tenants closer to the time of the closure in March 2024.

Programming changes

Other arenas (Tomken Twin Arena, Erin Mills Twin Arena, and Meadowvale 4 Rinks) will be kept open in 2024 to ensure all spring/summer programming can continue as normal through the summer months.

Our Customer Service Centre team will reach out to all user groups who typically use ice facilities in the summer months to find alternative locations while Iceland is closed.
