The City of Mississauga has recently completed an extensive growth study to help prepare as the city’s population reaches one million. The study provides key information about long-term population, housing and employment forecasts to the year 2041.
Highlights from the report include:
- An estimated population of 829,000 by 2031; and 878,000 by 2041.
- Total employment of 527,000 by 2031; and 552,000 by 2041.
- Forecast that Mississauga will continue to be an attractive, liveable community with a road network access to highways that will attract many new residents and jobs.
“This is one of the most significant reports that go to Council,” says John Calvert, director of Policy Planning. “The City of Mississauga 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.”
Calvert notes that the report will benefit outside agencies like school boards, hospitals, private business owners and developers who look to doing business with the City. Calvert also notes that the growth forecasts will help to guide management teams as they prepare capital budgets and forecasts, complete transportation studies and plan for services such as fires, libraries and parks.
