Mississauga will work with province on new plan for Peel dissolution

December 13, 2023

While Mississauga was fully committed and prepared to move forward with the full dissolution of the Region of Peel, as stated in the Hazel McCallion Act (Peel Dissolution), the City is supportive of the plan announced on Dec. 13, 2023 by Minister Calandra to scope the dissolution process and will work with the province to make it a reality. From Mississauga’s perspective, this update marks the first phase of a longer-term process.

Minister Calandra announced that the province’s Transition Board mandate will change to review moving some services, including waste management, road and related infrastructure, water and wastewater operations, and land-use planning to the lower-tier municipalities, including Mississauga. The Transition Board will continue to work with the local municipalities and the Region of Peel to develop models and make recommendations to the province, with the ultimate goal of getting more housing built quickly. Mississauga has a plan to reach the housing target of 120,000 homes in 10 years, and welcomes the ability to have more control over the infrastructure that supports these new units.

Community Foundation of Mississauga recently hosted a great conversation/virtual session on Mississauga’s Affordable Housing Crisis and the Impact on Newcomers.

• Major forces contributing to the issue of unaffordability in housing.
• Some of the ways we can ensure that the rights of tenants are safeguarded and that newcomers are well-informed about common rental laws.

Homelessness and poverty are complicated issues that so often feel like they’re being overlooked by the people in charge. With the skyrocketing costs of living and the harder it’s become to find deep-cut affordable housing, it’s so easy to feel like everyone’s last priority.
In this episode of Homelessness in Hiding: Our Youth Between the Cracks, host Mya Moniz sits down with Councillor Martin Reid, the new Councillor for Mississauga’s Ward 9, which covers Meadowvale and Central Erin Mills. Today, we get to know a little more about who he is, how he wants to his community heal from poverty, and how he plans to use his position in office to amplify the issues that matter to us.
