Welcome to the Active Switch Community Program for residents of the City of Mississauga

Physical activity is a critical component of staying healthy. Yet every day, people pass up easy and free opportunities to exercise by choosing to drive instead of using active options including walking or cycling.

Set a goal: Definable goals help you stay on track. Every minute, step and kilometre counts towards achieving your goal.
Track progress: Measuring the progress towards your goal is easy with the detailed dashboard. Track your personal goal and monitor your progress to make sure you're on the right track.
Stay motivated: The kilometres you log will be converted to illustrate the amount of calories you have burned and greenhouse gas emissions you have saved. Feel good about your progress and how you are improving your own health and the health of the environment.
