The Mississauga Writers Group this year has initiated a project to publish an anthology with the theme "Save the Earth - it’s in your hands". We are asking youth and our local writers to write about the earth sharing why they love the earth, what they can do to help save it and take care of it.
We would really love to see writing - poems, prose or short stories from our residents featured in our upcoming Mississauga Writers Group anthologies. All youth are also welcome to submit their work for consideration into the anthology. Our aim this year, in addition to our regular anthologies, is to provide our youth with opportunities to get published and have their voices heard!

Welcome to Mississauga, Canada's 6th largest city and home to 734,000 residents representing cultures from around the globe. There are many services and programs to explore.
Consider switching to PRESTO when you board a MiWay bus as of January 29, 2018 and you can avoid paying more for your ride.
Most of MiWay’s fares including PRESTO fares will be frozen as of January 29, 2018, with the exception of cash fares and paper tickets.
“We recognize the need to balance the cost of transit with our goal to increase ridership in our City,” said Geoff Marinoff, Transit Director. “We encourage riders to join in the movement of using PRESTO. It’s so easy to load, tap and ride with PRESTO which makes up 64 per cent of MiWay fares, up four per cent from last year at this time. Freezing PRESTO fares will continue to support PRESTO use and our ultimate goal to eliminate paper tickets.”
Marinoff added that in 2018, MiWay will continue to invest in its transit system to allow increases in service levels and frequency of buses.
The Infrastructure Brochure has been helpful in understanding what infrastructure the City is responsible for building and maintaining as well as the level of funding received from senior levels of government.
