About MCAC

The Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee (MCAC) is a volunteer citizen committee advising City Council and staff about cycling issues in Mississauga.  We liaise closely with the City's Active Transportation Division.  We are passionate about cycling as a key component of city-building, multi-modal transportation and healthy living.

NOTE:  Members of the MCAC are appointed from every part of the City to ensure balance.  We are available as a resource to individual Councillors regarding cycling matters in their Wards, including attending public meetings about local cycling infrastructure projects.

► MCAC Agendas and Minutes are posted on the City's website, which also lists our twelve (12) citizen members.

New cycling initiatives are evaluated by MCAC according to three main criteria: connectivity, safety and usage.

► Consistent with the goals of the Mississauga Cycling Master Plan (2010), the goals of the MCAC are to:

    Foster a culture where cycling is an everyday activity in Mississauga,

    Build an integrated on-road and off-road cycling network as part of a multi-modal transportation system, and

    Adopt a 'Safety-first' approach for cycling in Mississauga.

In addition to providing advice and feedback regarding the growing cycling network, MCAC promotes Mississauga as a cycling destination by conducting organized Community Rides during the months of May through September.

MCAC Annual Report to Mississauga Council

December 14, 2016:  MCAC made its annual presentation to Mississauga Council with the theme 'Supporting Cycling Culture in Mississauga.'  Cycling culture is becoming more evident in the City and we need to ensure it grows.

MCAC has a three-pronged approach which includes:
    1. Grow Ridership  (our Community Rides are an example)
    2. Promote Safety  (we are promoting Vision Zero)
    3. Install Minimum Grid  (a safe, connected infrastucture Network)
