The Ontario government has placed Mississauga, as part of the Region of Peel, in the Grey-Lockdown Zone of the Government of Ontario’s Keeping Ontario Safe and Open Framework.

“Although this is not the level we wished to be placed in, I understand why the Government of Ontario has placed Peel in the Grey-Lockdown Zone. I am pleased that our businesses will be able to start to reopen with limited capacity and begin to recover,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “I remind everyone we have a long way to go as our vaccine plans get underway. It is critical we continue following the health regulations from the Government of Ontario and the Region of Peel. We have many things to look forward to and need to remain diligent in order to recover from the pandemic.”

The City of Mississauga is reviewing its services, program, and facility reopenings.
