National Volunteer Week runs from April 12th to the 18th. I have seen firsthand how Mississauga is home to thousands of genuine, thoughtful and caring people. Each day, residents of all ages, volunteer their time, talent and treasure toward important causes and elevating the quality of life for all residents. During my time as a City Councillor, I had a number of hardworking volunteers support community events my office hosted.

Volunteer MBC in particular does a tremendous job to bring people together and to identify volunteer opportunities. Mississauga is a better place because of these generous contributions.

At the City of Mississauga we are fortunate to have such committed volunteers who work tirelessly as members serving on municipal committees. From heritage preservation, to urban planning, and fostering a more inclusive, diverse and dynamic community, these volunteers are shaping Mississauga’s future.

For more than 25 years one of our more cherished volunteer groups, Friends of the Mississauga Library System, has worked to promote literacy and extend programs and services of the library system throughout different local neighbourhoods.

The City of Mississauga always welcomes dedicated individuals to volunteer their efforts with us. The Recreation Division works with hundreds of volunteers to deliver outstanding City programs and services. Through our Volunteer Management Program, we strive to match volunteers with available positions which meet their needs and interests. I encourage all residents to get involved to help make a positive impact and a lasting difference in their community.
