Community Advisory Circle

The Community Advisory Circle are a volunteer group of ten individuals representing a cross-section of organizations throughout Mississauga who bring invaluable knowledge and experience about our city and it’s residents to Legends Row, particularly during our Inductee selection process.

Each year, they receive all nominations made on-line and from these, along with their own analysis of deserving recipients, provide the Legends Row Management Team with their recommended choices for that year. The Legends Row Management Team are then charged with the responsibility of making the final selection. (see Selection Process)
