“Receiving this award demonstrates Mississauga’s ongoing support and commitment to the University of Guelph’s Co-operative Education Program while allowing the City to strengthen its efforts in the areas of environmental responsibility and stewardship,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “By hiring students from the University of Guelph, we can continue to grow and empower those working in the environmental field helping to make our city more environmentally sustainable for the future.”

Students have assisted with community outreach programs and environmental investigations while supporting the Environmental  Services team.

“Our co-op students have been a valuable asset to our team,” said Helen Noehammer, Director Transportation and Infrastructure Planning. “Their participation has helped to bring a fresh perspective to our environmental programs including our new Stormwater Education and Outreach Program.” Since 2002, the City has hired more than 60 students who have worked for the Environmental Services team. – CINEWS
