Sweet seasonal offerings designed with public safety in mind

Located near Lake Ontario, the lands where Bradley Museum is situated have a long history of providing food and shelter for Indigenous peoples and early settlers. At this time of year, we notice the days getting longer and winter turning into spring. Sunlight warms the earth, melting snow, waking up slumbering wildlife, and prompting sap to start flowing in our maple trees. This is the season for making maple sugar, the traditional first food of the year.

The Museums of Mississauga gratefully acknowledge the First Nations people and allies that shared their knowledge and counselled us on creating these materials, including Jayme Gaspar, Andrew Judge, Jai King-Green, Bryan LaForme, Caitlin LaForme, Alexandre Nahdee, Faith Rivers, Mark Sault, Peter Schuler, Diane Thomas, Lorenzo Whetung, and Murray Whetung. Miigwetch!

Here are some ways you can stay safe while celebrating the maple harvest and exploring our connections to the natural world!

Due to the province wide lockdown all remaining in person maple tours have been cancelled.

The City of Mississauga invites professional artists and illustrators with a connection to Mississauga to submit proposals to create original banner artwork. Artists are asked to propose artwork that forms a series of neighbourhood portraits that celebrate the unique culture and characteristics of Mississauga's neighbourhoods.

Join us for a chat with French-Canadian writer Ben Philippe about his latest book, Sure, I'll Be Your Black Friend. In it he hilariously chronicles the experience of being on the receiving end of many 'woke' fist bumps.
