The City of Mississauga has been awarded up to $2.5 million in government grants to upgrade community infrastructure. The Government of Canada’s investment will support the creation of safe, more accessible playgrounds and community centres. These renovations will help mark Canada’s 150th anniversary and provide enhanced public services.
Mississauga will receive this funding through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP 150). The program was established to support community infrastructure projects to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary.
The $2.5M federal contribution will support 28 infrastructure projects in Mississauga, including the improvement of local parks, trails, and community centres. Each project will help Canadian’s celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, while creating spaces to enjoy moments of culture, sport, recreation, and leisure for years to come.

Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Grants for Municipalities
The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program was developed to help municipalities invest in infrastructure upgrades and expansion initiatives. The program is available to municipal governments and aboriginal communities across the country.
CIP 150 provides up to 50-75% of eligible infrastructure project expenses, however program funding has already been depleted in some Canadian regions and may no longer accept new applications.
If you’re a municipality seeking government funding to support infrastructure projects, other options may be available to offset a portion of project expenses. Please contact Mentor Works to discuss alternate infrastructure funding programs.
