Message From Your MPP
Happy New Year to you and your family and welcome to 2023! The new year is a time to set new goals while reflecting on and celebrating the achievements of the past year. Through the hard work and resilience of Team Ontario, we have seen communities across the province come together to rebuild our province after the challenging times.
2022 was a year of strength, determination, and positivity as everyone paved the path for the future of Ontario. The Fall economic statement in 2022 provided a transparent look into the province’s finances and how it intends to enhance its plan to build Ontario while intensifying its efforts. Our Plan to Build Ontario included expanding infrastructure, healthcare systems, highways, and rebuilding our economy. With new improvements in policies to reduce red tape and build more homes faster. With skilled trade, we are ensuring a better future for our leaders of today and tomorrow. Overall, the vision that was reinstated in the year 2022 will be continuing into the year 2023 which is to make Ontario the best place to live work, and raise a family for everyone.
To make the process of building Ontario together more inclusive and faster, government has launched 2023 budget consultations with community members and stakeholders to seek input from everyone. Our next townhall meeting will be on January 26th 2022, we will roll out more information about it as we get closer to the date.
Once again, I want to wish everyone a blessed new year and looking forward to working together to build a better and brighter Mississauga-Malton. Please feel free to contact my office, we are always there for you.
Christmas Open House
Thank you, Mississauga-Malton, for joining me for the Christmas Open House. It was a wonderful day filled with art, good food and fun conversation. I was amazed by the creativity of kids in making bracelets that represented positive vibes of love, peace, and joy!
Hand-made bracelets from kids will be gifted to seniors to express their gratitude. It was heartwarming to join kids to write letters to Santa.
I had the opportunity to interact with all the attendees in a relaxed setting with delicious treats. I want to thank all the volunteers and staff for making this event a huge success.

Ontario Creating More Affordable Child Care Spaces Across The Province
The Ontario government has secured $13.2 billion in funding to create 53,000 new, affordable childcare spaces over the next 4 years. These spaces will save parents, on average, between $6,000-10,000 per child per year.
“Mississauga-Malton is home to many young families. Over 50% of its households have children, and approximately 18% of the population is under 14 years old” said MPP Deepak Anand.
These new accessible and affordable childcare spaces will help relieve parents financially, while also creating quality jobs in the community.
Additionally, the province has announced an expansion to the dual credit program for youth, to attract 420 students over two years into Early Childhood Education career pathways, to ensure a steady stream of qualified caregivers.
