Learn more about our Smart City Master Plan


Our Smart City projects improve services, foster open government, make data more accessible and enable research-based decisions.

The City of Mississauga is excited to launch our first SMRTCTY Master Plan.

Mississauga’s SMRTCTY will focus on creating vibrant, inclusive communities with a high quality of life. Mississauga will serve as a model of government-led smart city urban development. People-centred, neighbourhood-focussed and forward-ready we will use technology to address urban opportunities and challenges in order to create a city where people choose to work, live and play.

The SMRTCTY Master Plan provides a framework for how the City of Mississauga will approach digital projects, engage with the public and look at digital transformation. This plan was developed with extensive input from the public, local organizations and industry. It will continue in this collaborative spirit with the launch of the SMRTCTY, which will provide ongoing initiatives, public engagement, and thought leadership around digital modernization and smart city technologies.

The outcomes we are looking to achieve are ambitious – to enable a sustainable and desirable city, where people feel empowered, safe, healthy and happy. At the core, Mississauga’s SMRTCTY initiatives are about creating A Smart City for Everybody. We believe that when everyone wins we all win.
