Malton Canada Day 2015 – Photos

Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to share comments about the Canada Day celebration in Malton. It was an amazing day, and I’m thrilled that so many residents made it out to enjoy the fireworks and entertainment on Wednesday night.

The Canada Day festivities in Malton were fantastic.  The entertainment and fireworks were amazing. This is the first time in the 28 years I’ve lived in Malton that I could walk to such a fabulous Canada Day in my own neighbourhood, instead of driving long distances and  fighting traffic.  Now I finally feel that Malton is an important part of Mississauga! Keep up the good work.  We appreciate what you are doing for Malton.


Just wanted say GREAT JOB, HOORAY, FANTASTIC, AMAZING. I am happy to live in Malton now that somebody really cares. It shows just how much Maltonites want to be taken care of and that they care about their community. I have never in the 50 plus years that I have lived in Malton seen so many people out to one event. The crowd was orderly and really enjoyed the fireworks. Thank you for caring so much.


Just wanted to send a word of thanks for the wonderful July 1st you put on for Malton. It certainly gives a boost to the residents, I heard nothing but praise.


First and foremost I would like to say how proud I am of being a resident of Malton after Canada Day. This is largely due to your wonderful contribution in facilitating the event!  The Westwood Square was a one of a kind celebration. I have no recent memories of something so wonderful. My entire family and the kids in Malton were elated with the spectacular display of fireworks. I literally felt like I was watching it in Niagara Falls or Downtown Toronto. As a resident of Malton who plans on staying in this neighbouhood I would love  to see future events as such. My son cannot wait to see next year’s Canada day fire work celebration. Continue to make MALTON PROUD!! We appreciate your contribution.


I would like to thank you for the great Canada Day program you set up at Westwood Square. It was really nice of you to have seating arrangements for seniors. Please keep on arranging great functions like this in future. The fireworks were amazing!

Improvements coming to three Malton parks

Nearly $200,000 will pour into three Malton green spaces to improve trails and create an accessible playground for the community.

Half of the money will come from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure program, which provides federal funds in recognition of the country’s 150th birthday in 2017. The remainder will come from the City.

Look for changes to the following Malton green spaces:

  • Westwood Park Playground – Expanded playgrounds will include accessible swing seating, a wheelchair transfer platform on the play structure, accessible ground-level equipment and a paved accessible route. There will also be outdoor fitness equipment for older adults to enjoy! (Have a look at this article to see an example of an older adult “playground” in Lower Sackville, NS)
  • Father Joseph A. Nolan Trail and the Derry Greenway Trail – the aging trails will be replaced to City standards and also made accessible so people using assistive devices can get better use of the trail. Signs will be added to the trail in recognition of Canada’s 150th anniversary as well.

Snow clearing assistance for seniors or persons with disabilities

Registration for the City’s Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program opens August 10 for seniors and people with disabilities to help clear snow at the end of driveways during road plowing.

“Registration for the program opens in the summer to reach as many people as possible with this service which helps seniors and persons with disabilities live independently,” said Bob Levesque, manager Works & Technical Services. “The service is performed after each snow plowing.”

Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program
This program runs from November 30, 2015 to March 11, 2016. The windrow snow clearing service will plow a three metre (10 feet) wide area at the end of the driveway for one car to pass. The service may take up to 36 hours after a snow storm and bare pavement cannot be guaranteed.

Who is Eligible?
Residents who are 65 years and older in 2015 and people with disabilities can apply for the program. The cost of the program is either $200 or free if the applicant meets financial assistance criteria.

How to Apply?
Applications for the Driveway Windrow Snow Clearing Program are available online or at all community centres, the Recreation Customer Service Centre (located at the Central Library) and the Mississauga Seniors’ Centre.
