Message from Your MPP
Fall is officially upon us and it is one of my favourite season of the year! As we witness the beautiful transformation of leaves into shades of red, orange, and gold, we are reminded of the inevitable change that surrounds us. Students are also settling into their new school year, as they enjoy learning from class, socializing with their friends, and participating in extracurriculars they love. I’m so proud of our children for their resilience and for working together with their parents, teachers, and guardians to bring the best out
The season of Autumn is also a reminder of the blessings we have in our life it is the perfect time to express our gratitude.
As we approach Thanksgiving Day we want to thank the Mississauga-Malton families for their support. I am also thankful for my wife and my two children for being my pillars of strength every day.
I wish everyone Happy Thanksgiving this year with your family and friends, I invite you to share with us the things and the people in your life you feel grateful for. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and share what you’re thankful for!

Healthy refreshments and water were provided to the donors to ensure all those who participate felt healthy and energized upon leaving. MPP Anand has been a longstanding advocate for encouraging everyone in donating blood to help vulnerable patients in need. Thank you to the incredible blood donors and the hardworking nurses and staff for making donating blood an easy and safe process. Let’s do our part and #beadonor
