Use of the Registered Group Civic Mark

The Registered Group Civic Mark can be added to your group’s promotional materials like brochures, posters or websites. This mark can only be used by approved Registered Groups in good-standing.

We’ll email the Registered Group Civic Mark to your organization’s contact as part of the approval process when you register or renew your group status. For more information, email community.group@mississauga.ca.
