Mississauga Board of Trade to Host Mayor's Annual Luncheon - Hazel McCallion's Final State of City Address
Mississauga, Ontario (September 15, 2014)Mississauga Board of Trade (MBOT) will be hosting the 2014 Annual Mayor's Address Luncheon on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at Mississauga Convention Centre, sponsored by MNP LLP. 


Each year, the Mayor's Address event provides the Mississauga business community the opportunity to hear first-hand from the Mayor about the opportunities and challenges facing Canada's sixth largest city.  This year's event will be highly anticipated as it will be the final State of the City Address provided by Mayor Hazel McCallion before she retires after 36 years as Mayor of Mississauga. 


"For four decades, Mayor McCallion has been our city's number one ambassador and champion for business," says Sheldon Leiba, MBOT President.  "The large, thriving and leading economic centre that Mississauga is today is a result of her leadership and commitment to creating a strong economic base. We expect that in her address she will reflect on our city's history, but will certainly have some very strong comments to make about Mississauga's future potential."


The event will also serve as an opportunity for the Mississauga Board of Trade to pay tribute to Mayor McCallion on behalf of the city's business community. 


Registration for the event is: MBOT members $65 or $600 for a table of 8; non-members $85 or $750 for a table of 8. Online registration and more information is available at
