My Accomplishments

Making a Difference in Ward 5
Welcome to a glimpse of my accomplishments in Ward 5 as City Councillor. Below are a few of the key projects each showcasing my dedication to enhancing our community. Explore these and more accomplishments by visiting

Carolyn Parrish – Leading The Way

Please look through website with particular attention to the incredible park under construction north of Eglinton between Fairwind and Hurontario. The playground is custom designed around a nautical theme with a massive shipwreck at it’s centre, a lighthouse and a series of extras including a whale and other beautifully crafted ocean-side objects for interactive play. Not only will children be able to enjoy physical exercise on completely accessible equipment, their imaginations will be stimulated as they climb over the pirate ship and bounce in the surrounding lifeboats.


Further north in the Village of Malton there are two projects underway – the construction of a full scale AVRO Arrow to be installed on a massive arm, high above the Flight Garden in Paul Coffey Park on Derry Road. This $3 million dollar project, financed through Tourism Mississauga, Federal Gas Tax money and private donations will be a tribute to the incredible aerospace industry that got its start in Malton and continues today with over 300 individual flight-related industries.


Also under construction we have the Jonathan Davis Youth Hub attached to Lincoln Alexander Secondary School, repurposing the space formerly occupied by an indoor swimming pool. Again, funding in the amount of $3.6 million from the City of Mississauga, the Region of Peel and private donors will create an incredible space exclusively for youth programming including a fully equipped teaching kitchen and a recording studio for budding artists.


Please take a tour through to appreciate the result of the work we’ve done throughout my time as Councillor for Ward 5. Take time to enjoy glimpses of past Fall Fairs, Santa Claus Parades and Malton Canada Day Celebrations – events we look forward to once again enjoying in the very near future.


Ward 5 is an extremely diverse ward with two distinct but complementary sections that make an incredible challenge for those who would serve it well.

Filled with warm, friendly and hard-working people, Ward 5 residents deserve to be treated with respect and provided with excellent service from their Councillor.


My commitments to you:

  • I bring my experience and my ability to attract private sector donations and senior government grants to Ward 5
  • I ensure we get our fair share of the huge tax base that is produced in Ward 5
  • I watch carefully, every week at City and regional Council, ensuring not one penny of your hard-earned tax dollars is wasted
  • Most importantly, I ensure your calls are returned promptly, your questions answered and your opinions valued

Malton Youth Hub

Since the “Soft Opening” October 10, more than 10,000 visits to the hub have been logged, and 1300 youth have received their free membership cards!

The Board of Directors is made up entirely of youth from the two Malton secondary schools and those who have moved on to post secondary locations. Seen here, the Board ran the official Opening and presented roses to Councillor Parrish, who envisioned the Hub and saw it through to completion.

The Hub was funded by the Region ($6m), the City of Mississauga ($5m) and private donors ($1.7m) some of whom attended the opening. Their names are on a plaque in the lobby. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (Canada) Aerospace funded the amazing teaching kitchen appliances with a donation of $60,000.

Milk Fund 2023 “YELLOWSTONE”

A huge thank you to all the sponsors and guests who attended this year’s TENTH ANNIVERSARY MILK FUND. The theme YELLOWSTONE was a huge hit with casual dress and complimentary cowboy hats. A special thanks to PEGASUS at HARDING WATERFRONT ESTATE on Lakeshore for spectacular food and very special attention to every detail.


This was our best year ever, with a net result of $238,800 for the many small community food banks, breakfast programs and summer camp lunches for the less fortunate residents of our City. Over forty cheques were distributed last year through the recommendations of the Ward Councillors.  Again, thank you to everyone involved. 


Goreway Bridge Construction Begins

After 30 years of clogged traffic at the CN Rail crossing, and hundreds of promises, the Goreway Bridge construction begins the end of June!

The successful bidder is a local Peel company from Caledon ALLIANCE VERDI CIVIL INC. The $41.6 million budget is in the bank, roughly divided between the City of Brampton, the City of Mississauga and CN Rail.

The overpass will be built much more quickly than the originally planned underpass, with the road closure and no time consuming CN Rail diversions. Completely closing Goreway to all traffic will see the bridge opened late 2024!



A New Park For Ward 5

The City has completed the purchase of 27 acres of parkland, formerly used as a 9 hole golf course. The intention is to keep the land as passive recreation with walking trails, areas in which to picnic and just enjoy the peace and quiet of a large green space in the middle of a bustling city.

Once part of a 100-acre family farm owned and worked by the Scott family for over 80 years, we intend to raise funds for the installation of giant insect – climbing equipment to place along the trails for children to enjoy.

EARTHWORKS, the company that built the creative playground in Fairwinds Park, will be commissioned to build giant ladybugs, dragon flies and bees, in keeping with the natural theme of the new park! We’re looking forward to our next amazing addition to the Britannia Community.
