Mississauga-Malton Town Hall
On September 27th, 2022 residents of Mississauga-Malton joined MPP Deepak Anand in a townhall meeting. During the townhall, MPP Anand updated residents about Queen’s Park, investments, community events and government initiatives aimed to help increase employment within the community. Information on the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) was reviewed to support students as they begin their training on the job while meeting high school diploma requirements. Residents learned key information on how to qualify for Better Jobs Ontario to get training and financial support for in-demand occupations. The townhall provided an open conversation between MPP Deepak Anand and the residents to discuss community updates. Looking forward to see you all at the next townhall meeting on October 25th, 2022.
To honor and raise awareness on World Alzheimers Month, special Guest Danielle Farell from the Alzheimers Society of Peel joined in and educated residents, family members and caregivers living with Alzheimers on this important issue. Useful resources and tools were introduced to assist residents in learning more about preventative measures such as exercise, stress reduction and eating healthy foods. Approximately 60 percent of people with dementia-related memory problems become lost at some point. For people experiencing dementia, every step counts. If you are living with dementia, or are caring for a person with dementia, Finding Your Way has information and resources to help you be prepared for incidents of going missing. Thank you to everyone from the community for joining and sharing ideas.
