Carmen Corbasson Community Centre Renovation

By Events, Issues, Resources, Ward 1

May 9, 2022

On June 20, 2022, the Carmen Corbasson Community Centre will close to the public for renovations. The closure marks the start of a two-year renovation project for the Ward 1 community centre. Construction is set to begin the first week of July.The project includes renovating and building a new addition that will improve the quality of recreation services, implementing higher accessibility and green building standards to improve energy efficiency and savings, and reducing the City’s carbon footprint.

“Renovating Carmen Corbasson Community Centre is part of our efforts to enhance the recreation programs and services that we offer to our community members,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “We’re committed to improving facility sustainability, accessibility and safety features while also providing the top-quality programming that the City of Mississauga has become known for. We look forward to welcoming back residents once renovations are complete.”

The community centre will reopen in fall 2024. Once completed, the renovated facility will include:

  • A fitness centre with cardio machines, weights and fitness studio with wood sprung floor
  • A new aquatics centre with a 25-metre, six-lane pool and a warm water therapy pool
  • A new multi-purpose space
  • Enhancements to existing multi-purpose spaces
  • Renovations to the indoor arena
  • Improved connections to the Mississauga Seniors’ Centre
  • Improved sustainable and accessible design standards

“The Carmen Corbasson Community Centre has been a staple in the Ward 1 community for more than 40 years,” said Stephen Dasko, Ward 1 Councillor. “It’s exciting to see the vision for this beloved facility become a reality as the renovation begins. This eagerly-anticipated project will enhance the quality of life for local residents by allowing the opportunity for more programming and improved access and safety, while raising the bar on sustainability and green building standards.”

This redevelopment was recommended and approved as part of the City’s 2019 Recreation Master plan, which was informed through extensive community consultation.

“The Carmen Corbasson Community Centre underwent an extensive renovation about 20 years ago,” said Kristina Zietsma, Director, Recreation. “This much-needed redevelopment project is addressing aging infrastructure and will also offer much more in the way of services, programs and activities for Ward 1 and beyond.”

Although the facility closure is scheduled for June 20 many services will continue to be available at community facilities throughout the City. All aquatic programming at Cawthra Park Secondary School will continue as normal through the redevelopment.  The Mississauga Seniors’ Centre will remain open. Site access during the renovation will change to allow for the construction zone to be secured.

Carmen Corbasson Community Centre was built in 1972 and is located on Cawthra Road just south of the QEW in Mississauga. Formerly known as the Cawthra Arena, the facility was renamed in 2012 in honour of retired Ward 1 Councillor, Carmen Corbasson.

The Lakeshore Transportation Studies include three infrastructure projects in the Lakeview, Port Credit and Clarkson communities that build from the 2019 Lakeshore Connecting Communities Transportation Master Plan. Each project requires a specific type of environmental review.

1. New Credit River Active Transportation Bridge Study

The City is developing the preliminary design and completing the Schedule B Class EA for a new Active Transportation bridge over the Credit River north of Lakeshore Road. This bridge will enhance mobility across the river for people walking, rolling and cycling.

What is a Major Transit Station Area in Mississauga? Join our Information Session

By Events, Issues, Planning & Development, Ward 1

Major Transit Station Areas (MTSA) are mixed-use, transit-supportive neighbourhoods that provide easy access to local amenities, jobs, housing and recreation opportunities. MTSAs generally include lands within a 10-minute walk (500-800 metres) of a rapid transit station or stop. They are located primarily along existing or planned transit corridors (e.g. GO Train, Light Rail Transit, Bus Rapid Transit).

Why MTSAs are important

As Mississauga continues to grow, the Province of Ontario is directing this growth to areas that can support it. This includes MTSAs in Mississauga.

The City has been developing its own detailed MTSA policies to align with the Provincial and Regional requirements. These policies will address MTSA specific height requirements, land uses, minimum densities and other policies.

Learn more about how this affects Mississauga

The City is hosting an online information session on April 26, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. to present the proposed city-wide MTSA policies and how they will work with other related City projects.
