Mississauga Ward 1 Councillor Remembered

It was with great sadness and shock that we learned of the sudden passing of City of Mississauga Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey on January 15, 2018.

Jim was a passionate advocate for, and supporter of, heritage preservation and natural conservation, and a true visionary who looked to make Ward 1, Mississauga and the world a better place.

Jim was one of the driving forces behind many endeavors, notably the Small Arms Society, the adaptive reuse of the Small Arms Building, the Lakeview Legacy Project, Inspiration Lakeview, and the Lakeview Waterfront Connection, just to name a few.

After many years as an active resident and citizen member of the City’s Heritage Advisory Committee, he was elected to Mississauga City Council in 2010, representing Ward 1. A true Heritage Hero, Jim served on many Boards and advisory committees, including serving as a Board Member for Heritage Mississauga.

Jim was born and raised in Malton, and was a long-time resident of Lakeview. Our thoughts are with his family at this most difficult time.
