Rich in history and home to the city’s most diverse ethnic population, Malton has long been ignored when it comes to funding initiatives and community projects.
But that’s all set to change as the City’s planning department passed a long-term community vision, MyMalton, which establishes guidelines and principles for the redevelopment of one of Mississauga’s most neglected areas.
“For years, we’ve felt like the stepchild and now we feel like Cinderella,” said Camar Cameron, one of the speakers who attended the planning meeting.
Pino Di Mascio, the consultant leading a yearlong community engagement study, said one of the most troubling issues facing Malton is the perception that it’s on the fringes of Mississauga.
