Winter in Canada can be long and cold, but it doesn’t have to be a time to stay inside. It can be an opportunity to explore the great outdoors in a parka and boots as you immerse yourself in snowy activities, enjoy Mississauga’s finest trails and experience winter wildlife. With this recent blast of snow, there’s still time to make the most out of winter!
