Learn to Fish – Mississauga – Lakefront Promenade and Lake Aquitaine

By Announcement, Events, Parks, Ward 1

Free Learn to Fish Program 2024

Last year, City of Mississauga Parks staff worked with the MNRF to deliver their Learn to Fish program in an urban centre.  They had 10 pop-up sessions between Lake Aquitaine and Lakefront Promenade throughout Summer 2023.  These sessions had 219 participants in total with an equal split between children and adults.  The participation was higher than anticipated and MNRF was not expecting such a high percentage of adults.

As a result of the success of these 10 sessions, staff have been working with MNRF to bring the Learn to Fish program to Mississauga on a more regular basis.  We are happy to announce that the program will be at Lakefront Promenade and Lake Aquitaine starting this weekend to the end of August all summer long.

The Learn to Fish program is a free program that teaches new anglers of all ages how to fish in Ontario. This fun and engaging 2–hour program combines a 1-hour practical teaching session with one hour of supervised hands-on fishing.

Sign up with your group by reaching out to Leah Silverman at parks.communitydevelopment@mississauga.ca. To sign up individually online: Learn to Fish | ontario.ca

Dates available from mid-June to the end of August at Lake Aquitaine or Lakefront Promenade.

By Resources, Ward 1

INTERRUPTION DETAILS

Date and Time: Thursday, June 13th, 12:00pm to 5pm. 

Location: 1311 Northaven Dr                                 

Addresses Affected: 553-1316 Northaven Dr                                   

Project #: C-603083

The Region of Peel Public Works department regularly maintains and repairs the water system to make sure you have a consistent supply of quality drinking water. Sometimes we must turn off your water supply while we do this work.

Your water will be turned off on Thursday June 13th, from approximately 12:00 pm to 5:00 pmIf we need to reschedule this work due to weather or other circumstances, we will let you know the new date and time.

If this interruption may affect an alarm or maintenance company, it is your responsibility to notify them.  During the time that the water supply is interrupted, the building’s sprinkler protection system will not function.  A fire watch should be performed as necessary during this time period.

After the water interruption:

When we turn the water back on, air in the pipes may make the water cloudy and your plumbing may vibrate or make noise.  We recommend removing the air by slowly turning on your taps from the lowest to the highest faucet in the building (that is, starting in the basement/first floor and finishing on the top floor). Flush the toilets as well. You will likely need to run the water for 10 to 30 seconds.  Run the water until it is clear, and any vibration or noise has stopped.

Important note:  After the water is turned back on, we recommend checking your water meter (usually located in the basement).  If it is leaking, call Water Meter Installations Dispatch at:

  • (905) 791 – 7800 Ext. 3226 (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Monday to Friday)
  • (905) 791 – 7800 Ext. 4409 (After hours or Statutory Holidays)
