Mississauga to hold COVID-19 tele town hall this month


Published March 2, 2021 at 8:25 pm


If you’re a Mississauga resident who wants to learn more about the city’s response to COVID-19 and its vaccination plans, you might want to call into a tele town hall on Thursday, March 11, 2021, at 7 p.m. 

The city says the live, virtual event will provide updates to Mississauga residents and businesses as the city returns to the Ontario COVID-19 framework and prepares for community vaccination.

The current stay-at-home order, which is still in effect in Peel, Toronto and North Bay-Parry Sound, could be lifted as soon as March 8. 

It is not yet known if Mississauga will enter the grey/lockdown or red-control zone should the order be lifted. 

Residents who call into the town hall can listen to a group of panellists, including Mayor Bonnie Crombie, Peel Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Lawrence Loh, and Michelle DiEmanuele, president and CEO of Trillium Health Partners.

Residents can ask the panellists questions as well. 

Residents who wish to participate in the tele town hall can do so in one of the following three ways:

1. Pre-register your telephone number in advance

2. Participate online: listen to and ask questions at the Tele Town Hall online on March 11

3. Join by telephone

A random selection of residents will receive a telephone call to participate in the Tele Town Hall in advance, based on a list provided by a virtual town hall service. 

If you don’t receive a call and would like to participate, dial 1-877-229-8493 and enter ID number: 115911 followed by the # key.
