The Credits

THE CREDITS is Heritage Mississauga’s annual event (taking place in October or November), which honours members of the Mississauga community for their contributions and achievements with a celebration of our community heritage. Heritage Mississauga has recognized “Heritage Heroes” in the community for over 22 years, presenting the Credits gala for the last six.

Nominations are received from many diverse groups and the celebration of local community anniversaries are also an important aspect of this fully inclusive program. In 2018 we received 32 nominees in the following categories: Architectural Heritage, Business Leader, Community Heritage, Cultural Heritage, Heritage Youth, Modern Heritage, Natural Heritage, and Volunteer Heritage.
