In progress City project

Malton Community Hub

The City of Mississauga is converting the former Lincoln M. Alexander Secondary School pool in Malton into a Community Hub that provides services and programs that reflect the local youth needs.

Overview

Services and Housing In the Province (SHIP) is the Lead Agency to manage and operate the future Malton Community Hub.

SHIP will work with the City of Mississauga, its project partners and the community to shape the Hub’s vision and identify the program and service needs for the Hub as well as select sub-agencies to operate out of the Hub.

Public engagement

SHIP and the City of Mississauga would like to thank everyone who attended the engagement sessions and took the time to respond to the survey. The feedback gathered from the Malton Hub engagement sessions and survey in combination with recommendations from design and architectural plans will help build amenities and features into the construction.
