COMMUNITY CRIME AWARENESS DAY –
A CELEBRATION OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY
SPECIAL FEATURE – MISSISSAUGA FOOD FAIR
AT MISSISSAUGA CELEBRATION SQUARE
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2018
The 18th Annual Community Crime Awareness Day will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 11 am to 9 pm at the Mississauga Celebration Square, 300 City Centre Drive. This event is organized by the Mississauga Chinese Business Association in partnership with the Peel Regional Police, Safe City Mississauga, The Mississauga News and Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board.
The Community Crime Awareness Day serves as a tool for citizens to come together and learn about community safety and policing issues in the region, emphasizing cohesion and municipal harmony.
It is an event combining information, entertainment and friendship to promote a positive, safe and supportive environment for people who live and work in Mississauga.
Since its inception 17 years ago, the event’s attendance has continued to grow. We anticipate this event will attract 10,000 audiences in 2018. The response received to-date from the communities has been very positive because the event provides an opportunity for the community and business members to gain a better understanding of crime awareness as well as community-based policing initiatives currently undertaken by various police services.

This year we extend the hours to 9:00 pm by including more vendor booths showcasing large variety of Asian and local foods, souvenirs, music, performances and products.
