“This is one of the most significant reports that will go to Council,” says John Calvert, director, Policy Planning. “The City of Missisauga is quickly moving towards a city of one million people. “This report will be used not only by the City as the basis for all City master plan development, planning, and infrastructure decisions, but by the Region of Peel as well.”

Highlights from the report include:

  • A population of approximately 829,000 by 2031 and 878,000 by 2041, with most of the growth being directed to nodes, corridors, and the downtown core.
  • Total employment of 527,000 by 2031 and 552,000 by 2041, with most of the future employment growth to be in large office buildings
  • Forecast that Mississauga will continue to be an attractive, liveable community with a road network and access to highways that will attract many new residents and jobs.
