1. CluedUpp Games - Outdoor corporate team building activities in Mississauga
Covid-19 might have put a stop to a lot of things around the world, but it doesn’t need to impact your team get-togethers any longer. You see, CluedUpp is an outdoors event that everyone can get involved in, safely.
It’s basically like a murder mystery tour that can take place anywhere in Mississauga. In teams, and using your smartphone, you’ll be sent around the city to solve puzzles, work out challenges and discover a series of clues. The aim of the event is to find out who did it, and what weapon was used.
As well as being a fun way to boost your teamwork and communication skills, it also allows you to see Mississauga in all its glory. Unlike many other interactive games, there are no live actors, meaning you don’t need to fear going round every corner. In fact, the only tough thing is choosing which theme you’d like to experience - Witchcraft and Wizardry, The Ripper, or CSI.
2. Tree Top Trekking - Challenge yourself and your team from new heights
What better way to instill a little teamwork amongst your group than with an activity that’s bound to get the nerves going?!
Donning the latest safety equipment and a hard hat, you’ll be sent off into the trees for corporate team building in Mississauga that definitely leaves a lasting impression. Lead the way for those who aren’t so confident, work together throughout the staggeringly high obstacle course and use communication and voice to motivate everyone until the end.
It might look scary - maybe even impossible - but when you get to the end, your team will be uplifted, inspired and a little proud of themselves, rightfully so.

3. Hardware Harmony - Creative team building ideas for Mississauga companies
Whether you’re into pop, rock or a bit of everything, music makes everyone feel good. So, it makes sense to include it in your next corporate day.
Hardware Harmony will see your team split up into smaller groups as they compete against each other in a series of music-themed challenges. Each one requires different mental and physical skills and, if you complete it, you’ll receive a point as well as musical accessories and rhythm guides.
The event concludes with a performance by your groups, using the musical items that you’ve won throughout the challenges. Not only is it a laugh, but it’s great for boosting collaboration, confidence and creativity. Oh, and we guarantee you won’t know any of the songs that are being attempted!
4. Virtual Shuffle - Online events for all sized groups
Whether you’re all still working remotely or you’re looking for corporate event ideas near Mississauga that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home, a virtual event is a great idea.
In this online session, you’ll get to know your colleagues better through a series of games and challenges. You can even choose from a range of themes to help inspire conversation. Of course, if you want to send your team a bottle of the good old stuff to enjoy alongside the video call, that’s completely up to you.
It’s a great way to get together, and not talk about work, and also makes for a fun introduction for team members who are new on the scene.
5. Sangria Sip Off - Outside the box activities that guarantee a good time
Okay, so we’ve all heard of corporate team building activities for Mississauga businesses that ask your team to think of a new product or business idea. Sure, they’re fun, but you’re not really getting away from the world of work, are you?!
That’s where this event is different. In teams, you’ll have to come up with a brand new wine-based product, building your Sangria from the items that you win during the challenge round.
With your drinks stirred, you’ll have to present them to a team of judges. That’s not even the best bit either as then it’s time to work the room and taste all the Sangria on offer before the experience finishes with its award ceremony. Yep, you might want to leave the car at home for this one.

6. Team Bowling - Competitive events for work colleagues
Let’s face it - we all like a bit of competition, and amongst work colleagues the rivalry can be fierce. Bowling is a popular choice for corporate team building in Mississauga and many of the venues even hold special corporate nights that combine the sport with a disco bar.
Split into teams, come up with a funny nickname for the board, and get ready to show off your skills - or lack of.
It’s a great way to let off steam after a stressful day at work, and as soon as you step into the infamous bowling shoes, we guarantee you’ll be taken back to your childhood memories. There’s also an on-site cafe that serves up delicious food and bar snacks meaning you can make a whole evening of it.
7. The Amazing Chase - Team activities inspired by popular TV shows
Combining speed, physical ability and teamwork, this fast-paced experience will see you race around the city while completing challenges and games. The winning team is the one who finishes the course in the fastest time possible.
Ideal for boosting communication and lifting team spirits, this experience will push your fitness and cooperation skills to the test. But it’s not as simple as it sounds. Along the way, your team will come up against a few roadblocks and obstacles - all of which are designed to test you together and as individuals.
It might not be for everyone but, if you’re looking for team building ideas for Mississauga employees who enjoy a personal challenge, this is a great option.

8. Cardboard Boat Building - Test your wits and strength in this outdoors adventure
You might have seen raft building before, but have you seen cardboard boat building before? Split into small groups, you’ll be shown to your work station, which comes with everything you need to design and build your masterpiece. But there’s no barrels and rope here. Instead, you have boxes and tape to build an expert raft that will float - or at least, that’s the aim.
With the clock ticking and your competition working as fast as they can, you need to race to build a reliable, stable and quick-moving raft. No repairs are allowed once the water race begins so be sure to fix it together tightly.
While the winning team gets to go home with bragging rights, every group will have built their communication and collaboration skills, and be well-versed when it comes to thinking outside the box, quickly.
9. The Domino Effect Challenge - Work in teams but have your eyes on the bigger picture
This indoor activity will require your team to be hands-on, creative and think quickly on the spot. In teams, you’ll have to design and build a specific section of a much larger chain-reaction machine. Once every group has finished, it’s time to connect them all together, before starting the machine up to work - hopefully.
Not only is it great for collaboration and teamwork but, when you see how individual work can come together, it does wonders for group spirits and morale. It also doesn’t require much physical activity, so is ideal for all ages and fitness levels.
What’s more, if your team’s part in the cog doesn’t work as well as it’s meant to, you could face a few funny forfeits…
