STATEMENT: Mayor Crombie Responds to the Appointment of the Transition Board for the Dissolution of Peel Region

July 5, 2023

“I would like to thank Minister Clark for appointing the transition board and taking this important step forward to dissolve Peel Region, making Mississauga an independent city. The board brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise from diverse professional and municipal backgrounds, and their appointment is a positive step forward in this important process.

The City of Mississauga stands ready to provide any necessary resources and support to the board as they embark on this endeavour. Our hope is to work closely with the members to ensure a seamless transition that is transparent, fair and in the best interests of all our communities.

Throughout this process, our primary objective is to ensure uninterrupted delivery of services to our residents and certainty for our more than 5,000 Region of Peel employees.

We look forward to the journey ahead and to building stronger communities as we work towards independence.”

-Bonnie Crombie, Mayor of Mississauga
