  • City of Mississauga Donates Spring Flowers to Health Care Professionals

    April 24, 2020

    The City of Mississauga is donating approximately 1,500 pansies, ranunculus and primrose as a gesture of thanks to hospital workers and health care providers at Trillium Health Partners.

    “We are incredibly grateful to our hospital and health care heroes who are on the front lines battling the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “This is a small gesture but one we believe shows Mississauga’s support for the dedicated men and women who courageously go to work to keep us healthy and safe. They are working while we stay home so that together, we can flatten the curve. On behalf of Council, we salute our health care heroes at Trillium Health Partners. These flowers are a sign of spring and brighter days ahead. I hope they bring much needed light and joy during this very difficult time. ”

    “The staff at Trillium Health Partners are working long hours under difficult circumstances,” said Caroline Riseboro, President and CEO of Trillium Health Partners Foundation. “This is a lovely and moving gesture from the City of Mississauga, one which reminds us that, even in dark times, beauty and renewal persist. On behalf of my colleagues at the hospital, a special thanks to Mayor Crombie and the City.”

    “Plant materials for the City’s spring planting program, typically used in planters and gardens across the City, are ordered eight months in advance and could not be cancelled,” said Jodi Robillos, Director, Parks, Forestry and Environment.  “Our parks and forestry staff are preparing for the onset of spring which includes litter pick up and the mowing of turf but horticulture is not an essential service.  Rather than dispose of this plant material, a proposal was developed at the request of Mayor Crombie to donate the plants to hospital workers and health care providers at Trillium.”

    City of Mississauga staff continue to provide essential services including waste collection, priority maintenance, legislated inspections, contract administration and bylaw enforcement during the COVID-19 crisis.

    The City has partnered with Humberview Maintenance Group Ltd., Royalview Landscaping and Winsom Landscape Contractors who volunteered their staff time to collect and deliver the plants for distribution to each health care professionals as they exited the Trillium Hospitals professionals as they exited the Trillium Hospitals.
