Think of our city like a big team project, where every member’s input matters. That’s what civic engagement is all about—it’s more than just voting every few years. Active citizenship is about staying up to speed with what’s happening in our city, asking questions at council meetings, voicing your opinion, and playing an active role in Mississauga’s public life.

Fostering Civic Engagement

Encouraging You to Get Involved

Creating a culture of participation isn’t a one-way street—it’s a collective effort. We will do our part by promoting city council meetings and public events, ensuring they are accessible and inclusive. But we need you to take the first step: attend, speak up, and be heard.

Bringing Engagement to You

In today’s digital world, we have more ways to connect and communicate. We use online platforms to facilitate civic engagement, such as online Council meetings, digital surveys and virtual town hall meetings, making it easier for you to get involved.

Commitment to Your Input

We know that your participation must translate into tangible outcomes. We commit to taking your input seriously, considering the feedback received, and maintaining transparency about how your input influences city decisions.
