Sunday, September 15th 2019, 8:43 am - Up to 30,000 people are expected to attend the rally.
Andreescu is a fast-rising star in the tennis world, cemented by her win against Serena Williams earlier this month. The 19-year-old is the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title.
To celebrate her accomplishment, tennis fans are invited to Mississauga's Celebration Square for a special ceremony starting at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie told CBC she expects up to 30,000 people at the rally.
During the ceremony, Andreescu will be given a key to the city. Officials will also present an "Andreescu Way" street sign, with the actual street still to be determined.

"People are brimming with pride," Crombie told the CBC.
"This is our hometown girl. She was born and raised [here], attended elementary school here, trained at our very own Ontario Racquet Club."
What better way to celebrate her victory outdoors than to have accompanying fair weather conditions, which is expected now. Showers are forecasted to move out in time for the #SheTheNorth rally, but a light drizzle and clouds could linger.
