Welcome to our ninth installment of “Ask a Historian”.

Every week Heritage Mississauga will be taking questions about the history and heritage of Mississauga which our Historian, Matthew Wilkinson, will answer on Thursday afternoons.

#ApartTogether, Heritage Mississauga is the source for inquiries and curiosity about our beautiful city as we continue our mandate to research, record and celebrate the diverse heritage of Mississauga.

Please watch the video below for the most recent questions and answers and together we can all learn a little more about Mississauga.

Join Matthew for this weeks episode of: “Ask a Historian” as he welcomes guests Denise Mahoney, Project Manager for Cemetery Legislation and Compliance and John Dunlop, Manager of Heritage Planning and Indigenous Relations for the City of Mississauga. This week Matthew answers questions about historical churches, cemeteries, heritage designations, the role Mississauga played in World War One and more.


You are invited to email us questions you have about Mississauga and we encourage you to send a short (less than 1 minute) MP4 video of your question, which we may feature in one of our “Ask a Historian” videos.

Any questions not featured in our videos will receive a written response from Matthew.

We would also love to feature questions from young Mississauga residents who are curious about their city and will feature a dedicated video to these inquisitive kids.
