July E-Newsletter

Message From Your MPP

Greetings Mississauga-Malton,

As a proud Canadian, I am filled with immense gratitude and joy while reflecting on the vibrant Canada Day celebrations from earlier this week. It was wonderful seeing people from all walks of life come together to honour the rich history, culture, and values we hold as Canadians.

July also marks Egyptian and Tibetan Heritage Months and the observation of many significant religious occasions including Muharram, Ashura and Church of Latter-Day Saints Pioneer Day, a true reflection of our beautiful diversity. May these celebrations be filled with joy as we honour their importance.

Our government is making strides to support Ontarians by investing more than $6 million through the Skills Development Fund to train over 1,000 carpenters, introducing Ontario’s first financial literacy graduation requirement to ensure students exit Ontario’s school system with both literacy and practical financial literacy skills and adding 100,000 more MRI and CT scans at community surgical and diagnostic centres across the province each year so Ontarians can conveniently access the care they need sooner, closer to home.

Thank you everyone for joining the Mississauga-Malton Father’s Day celebrations; your invaluable presence made the event a huge success. Here’s to a month filled with memorable moments, delightful discoveries, and the simple joy of summer days. 

Best Regards,

Deepak Anand

Father’s Day

Thank you to everyone who came out to this year’s Father’s Day celebration at the Frank McKechnie Community Centre in Mississauga-Malton. The event brought together families from across the community to honour and celebrate the invaluable contributions of fathers in our lives.

It featured various engaging activities designed to entertain and involve participants of all ages. Families enjoyed interactive questionnaires to test their family bonding, creative arts and crafts to make buttons, and lively music to keep the energy high throughout the evening.

Father’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the important role fathers play in our lives. I am thrilled to see so many families coming together to honour their dads and enjoy a fun-filled day showcasing community spirit. Events like this strengthen our community bonds and highlight the values we share.

The event was well-attended, with active participants throughout the evening. The positive feedback from attendees highlighted the sense of community and enjoyment fostered by the event. One resident said, “As a parent, it was heartwarming to see the community come together to celebrate Father’s Day. My kids had a blast in questioning my knowledge about them and we enjoyed the delicious dinner. It was a memorable day where we strengthened family bonds and created lasting memories.”

It was a great opportunity for families to come together and express their gratitude for the unconditional love and support provided by fathers. Wishing all the fathers and father figures a very Happy Father’s Day!
