Mississauga City Council recently approved the 2018 Business Plan and Budget. The City’s budget reflects a commitment to provide value for money. For businesses, this means real advantages and opportunities to locate here.
Mississauga’s 2018 Budget is a strong financial plan that invests in our city today and for the future, while continuing to provide residents and the business community with quality local services.
With just 34 cents of every property tax dollar received, Mississauga provides transit, roads, parks, fire stations, libraries and more.
Mississauga’s commercial and industrial property tax rates are competitive among municipalities this close to Canada’s busiest airport, the port at Toronto and the four 400-series highways.
View and compare our commercial/industrial tax rates with other GTA municipalities.
Our city-building priorities reflect what we have heard from our citizens:
- investing to expand public transit;
- combating gridlock by improving traffic management;
- offering a variety of recreational programs at our many community centres; and
- improving housing affordability.
The 2018 Budget projects savings of over $3 million, with $52 million saved over the past decade.
In 2018, the City is adding approximately $2.8 million worth of new services. This includes 46,000 more transit service hours and additional transit security, along with road, traffic and other infrastructure improvements. This is in addition to the services residents and business owners expect, including fire and emergency services, winter road maintenance, libraries, recreation programs and parks and forestry.
