The Four Levels of Government in Mississauga

In the City of Mississauga there are four levels of government with various responsibilities: Municipal, Regional, Provincial and Federal.

Local Government Responsibilities

The City of Mississauga is responsible for services like City transit, fire services, snow removal, and City parks. The Region of Peel also provides local services including police, and garbage and recycling.

The Provincial Government looks after matters that apply specifically to Ontario like education, health and highways. The Federal Government of Canada is responsible for things that affect all Canadians including national defense and citizenship. See infographic below for further details.

The Appeals Process Is Changing

A public information session was held on September 25, 2018 to provide information on the recent changes to the Planning Act. The changes to the Planning Act were introduced through Bill 139, “Building Better Communities and Conserving Watersheds Act, 2017” (the Act). The Act came into force on April 3, 2018. Learn more from the City of Mississauga’s website.

The Act also replaced the Ontario Municipal Board with the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), made changes to the appeal process, and created the Local Planning Appeal Support Centre, all of which are intended to give communities a stronger voice in land use planning.

For more information about the Act, please go to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs website at: http://www.mah.gov.on.ca/Page17661.aspx

Fall Leaf Pickup

Vacuum Leaf Pickup will happen on the following dates for Erindale Village;

October 29 – November 2nd
November 19 – 23

Please ensure the following for Vacuum Leaf Pickup:

  • Rake leaves to the edge of the grass by Sunday of the week before your scheduled vacuum leaf pickup. Do not rake leaves onto the road.
  • Do not mix items such as wood, brick or brush with the leaves as they can damage equipment or injure workers.
  • Help reduce potential flooding by keeping curbside storm drains clear of leaves.
  • Help City crews by removing cars from the street during leaf pickup.

Missed Leaf Pickup? Here are your options for disposing of leaves:

The Region of Peel will also pick up leaves on your regular waste collection day until
December 13, 2018. Leaves must be placed curbside in open, reusable containers such as bushel baskets, labelled rigid plastic containers or paper yard waste bags weighing less than 20 kgs (44 lbs) when full. Do not use plastic bags.

You can also compost your leaves or spread them around the base of your trees. Leaves will fertilize the soil and act as a buffer against extreme temperatures. Remember that oak leaves are difficult to compost.

Questions?

For more information on the City’s Leaf Pickup program, contact 3-1-1 (or 905-615-4311 from outside the City) from Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

For more information on Region of Peel yard waste collection, call 905-791-9499 or visit their website.

FALL FEST

Erindale Village Association would like to invite you to our FALL FEST this coming Sunday, September 30th, from 4pm to 7pm at the Erindale Community Hall (1620 Dundas St. W., Mississauga), rain or shine. Free to all residents. There will be live music, yummy food, chilli, pies and cotton candy!

With the election around the corner, we thought it would be the ideal event for all Ward 7 candidates to also attend so they can introduce themselves to our neighbourhood. This will be a mix and mingle with residents in an informal manner. Although we are not scheduling any specific time for speeches or debate, there will be ample opportunity for candidates to engage in discussions with everyone during the festivities.

The full list of candidates can be found on the City website here.

Please RSVP and looking forward to seeing you!
