Citizen volunteers advising City Council on cycling issues


About MCAC

The Mississauga Cycling Advisory Committee (MCAC) is a citizen committee that advises City Council and staff on issues related to the cycling network in Mississauga.  We maintain close liaison with the City's Active Transportation Division.  We are all volunteers who are passionate about cycling as an important component of city building, multi-modal transportation and healthy living.

We report to Mississauga Council with formal presentations twice a year and are available as a resource to Councillors regarding cycling matters in their Wards.  Interested in joining MCAC?  See information below.

New Terms of Reference for the MCAC (5p PDF) were approved by Council on June 10, 2015. 

Our Agendas and Minutes are posted on the City's website, where the twelve (12) citizen members of our committee are also listed.

New cycling initiatives are evaluated by MCAC according to three main criteria: connectivity, safety and usage.  Consistent with the goals of Mississauga's 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 an important cycling destination.  This includes outreach to the Mississauga cycling community (and beyond) via organized Community Rides

NOTE: For eight (8) years, MCAC conducted the Tour de Mississauga, which is now operated by a third party.
