The City of Mississauga has been selected by the Government of Ontario to host the 2022 Ontario Summer Games (OSG).
“Mississauga is thrilled to once again be selected to host the Ontario Summer Games,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “As Canada’s sixth-largest city, we pride ourselves on our ability to host large-scale sporting events like these. I want to thank the Province for choosing Mississauga. We can’t wait to welcome Ontario’s top athletes, their coaches, families and fans to our great City in 2022.”
“Having hosted the 2016 Ontario Summer Games and the 2018 Ontario 55+ Summer Games, we are excited to build on those successful events and deliver an even better experience in 2022,” said Shari Lichterman, Director, Recreation. “Our staff and volunteers are ready to work with our host committee and start planning another great event for our community and the visiting athletes.”
