On May 7, 2020, Council adopted the City’s Recovery Plan Framework. The framework is designed to help Mississauga address all aspects of the recovery from COVID-19 and is divided into four pillars for recovery: Community, Economic, Finance and Corporate.
The Economic Recovery Framework is one of four pillars guiding the City’s overall recovery efforts. The framework sets out the principles for the development of industry-specific economic recovery plans. These principles include a phased approach to recovery; finding every opportunity to help Mississauga businesses build back to better; and adopting an inclusive, whole community approach that leaves no one behind.
Economic Recovery Framework
The Economic Recovery Framework reflects phases found within the City of Mississauga’s COVID-19 Recovery Plan: Mitigate, Reboot and Grow. These phases are not time-specific, with the understanding and expectation that there may be overlap between them. These phases will guide the City’s economic recovery activities and outline milestones of recovery efforts.
Economic Recovery Plans
The need for industry-specific plans was outlined in the City’s Economic Recovery Pillar Framework. These plans consist of the following:
Small business is the foundation of Mississauga’s economy. From traditional main street small businesses to high-growth scale-ups, the economic health and vitality of these establishments directly impact the overall well-being of the local economy.
