City Council approved plans to create a Tourism Municipal Services Corporation (Tourism MSC) to promote Mississauga as a tourism destination. The Tourism MSC will operate as Mississauga’s tourism and destination marketing organization. This new organization will allow the City to attract more tourism and encourage visitors to explore all that our great city has to offer. From the sprawling waterfront to cultural festivals, sports teams, live music, creative arts, dining and more, there is so much to see and do in Mississauga.
The City of Mississauga’s first Smart City Master Plan was presented to General Committee. The plan focuses on how technology will continue to enhance the quality of life in Mississauga and help prepare for the future. A Smart City uses digital technologies to help support people who live, work and play in their city. This can include online services to pay bills and sign up for swim classes, free public Wi-Fi hotspots, events (such as hackathons) and infrastructure projects – such as traffic management systems and 5G network support. This Master Plan will guide Mississauga for the next ten years as it continues to evolve as a Smart City.
