Hazel McCallion, has been appointed as special advisor to the provincial premier and municipal affairs and housing minister.
McCallion brings many decades of public service, public advocacy and, most importantly, public representation that will enable her to provide advice on a range of municipal issues. The former Mississauga mayor, from 1978 to 2014, saw the city grow to become the sixth largest municipality in Canada. She will receive a maximum of $150,000 a year.
“Housing is one of our government’s top priorities and I’m looking forward to having Hazel McCallion support our work on the Housing Supply Action Plan,” said Steve Clark, municipal affairs and housing minister. “This advice, combined with the input we’re receiving through the government’s housing supply consultation, will help ensure that the people of Ontario have access to the right kind of housing in the right place.”
