Mississauga Urban Design Awards 2023: The Next Big Thing
Mississauga is emerging from a period of transition. Once a collection of villages, the city has matured into a vital and connected urban community and it took careful planning and ambitious design to get here. The City set out a bold vision in our Strategic Plan to inspire the world as a dynamic and beautiful global city for creativity and innovation, with vibrant, safe and connected communities.
The City has a long history of recognizing excellence in Urban Design. Established in 1981, the Mississauga Urban Design Awards is the oldest Urban Design Awards program in Ontario. The program offer three awards of distinction, including:
- Award of Excellence: Given to projects that demonstrate excellence across all judging criteria.
- Award of Merit: Given to projects that demonstrate excellence in one or more of the judging criteria.
- Healthy by Design: Given to projects that exemplify the six Healthy Community Design elements
The Mississauga Urban Design Awards also includes a People’s Choice Award, which is given to the project that receives the most public support through online voting.
The Mississauga Urban Design Awards invites a broad range of nominations, including private and public development projects, and urban elements or small developments which impact the quality of the public realm.
