The City of Mississauga learned at an announcement today that it has been selected by the Government of Ontario to host the 2022 Ontario Summer Games (OSG).
“Mississauga is thrilled to once again be selected to host the Ontario Summer Games,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “As Canada’s sixth-largest city, we pride ourselves on our ability to host large-scale sporting events like these. I want to thank the Province for choosing Mississauga. We can’t wait to welcome Ontario’s top athletes, their coaches, families and fans to our great City in 2022.”
“Mississauga is so deserving of this opportunity, as a diverse, welcoming, and energetic city that really embodies Ontario as the world in one province,” said Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries. “I want to congratulate them on their successful bid. I can’t wait to celebrate the Games—and our athletes—with them!”
“Having hosted the 2016 Ontario Summer Games and the 2018 Ontario 55+ Summer Games, we are excited to build on those successful events and deliver an even better experience in 2022,” said Shari Lichterman, Director, Recreation. “Our staff and volunteers are ready to work with our host committee and start planning another great event for our community and the visiting athletes.”
City Council has appointed two City representatives to sit on the Host Committee; Councillors Karen Ras, Ward 2 and Matt Mahoney, Ward 8.
“Mississauga is already established as a leader in sport, but the opportunity to host another Ontario Summer Games will allow us to further showcase our world-class facilities and welcome more visitors to our City,” said Councillor Karen Ras, Ward 2 and Host Councillor for the Ontario Summer Games.
Lichterman added, Mississauga continues to deliver on its Sport Tourism Strategy with these successful bids. Next year, the City is home to the 2020 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships and the 2020 Karate Canada Junior National Championships. Mississauga is also hosting the 2021 Ontario Parasport Games.
The 2022 Ontario Summer Games will be held in Mississauga from August 11-14, 2022.
About the Ontario Summer Games:
The Ontario Summer Games is the largest multi-sport event in the province. It attracts 3,000 young athletes 15 and 16 years old as well their coaches, managers, officials and their families. The Games are a program of the Ministry, Culture and Sport.
With school almost back in session, we want to remind students and drivers to practice road safety at all times, including in and around school zones.
Van Horne Outdoor (VHO) entered into an agreement with City of Mississauga to place digital signs at eight CP railway overpass locations in Mississauga.
VHO is responsible for paying for all of the upfront and ongoing cost to install and maintain the signs. In addition, VHO made a financial contribution into improving lighting underneath the bridges to improve pedestrian safety.
This project will provide a new multi-use trail within the Lakeshore Royal Windsor Hydro One Corridor. The trail is approximately 9 km long and will extend from Winston Churchill Blvd east to Westfield Dr, with some sections on-road. This is a joint project between the City of Mississauga and the Region of Peel in conjunction with Hydro One Network Inc.
The multi-use trail is an important part of Mississauga’s plan to provide active recreational opportunities for people and connections to other areas and trails. The City designed the trail to meet the Accessibility Standards for the Design of Public Spaces, making it safe and inclusive for all.
