Stay Positive, Active and Entertained with Mississauga’s Virtual Programs.The City of Mississauga offers a range of online activities during COVID-19 to help every member of the household stay positive, active, and entertained at home.

“We understand it is difficult to keep everyone busy and active as we all continue to stay at home and practice physical distancing,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “That’s why we have put together a range of free virtual programs and resources to help boost the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents. Keeping fit, staying healthy, and enjoying fun activities will help us maintain a positive mindset as we work to overcome this virus together.”
