City of Mississauga Cancels All Events and Spring Programs Up to July 3 Due to COVID-19 Impact

The City of Mississauga is taking additional precautionary measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic by cancelling all events and spring programs (registered and drop-in) up to July 3. This includes City-led events and events organized by external groups that require a City permit – whether at Mississauga Celebration Square, parks or other City facilities, which remain closed. At this time, no new permits will be issued.

Additionally, community and cultural groups receiving approved grant funding will continue to receive them, as this will assist with business continuity and to move forward post COVID-19. However, organizations will be required to confirm the impact that COVID-19 is having on their organization and actions that will be taken. The City will also work with event organizers to mitigate the impact of event and program cancellations and determine future event dates, if possible.

Approximately 368 events and gatherings taking place in City facilities and parks are impacted including six Canada Day events, sports tournaments, Mississauga Marathon, Carassauga, Mississauga Waterfront Festival and more.

The City will continue to reassess the situation and determine if cancellations will go beyond the July 3 date, based on consultations with Peel Public Health and the Province’s ban of social gatherings.
