Why You Should Be Exploring the Mississauga Community

 

Mississauga, with a population of over 700,000, is a thriving and ethnically-diverse city on the shores of Lake Ontario. The city is known as safe, friendly, and well-run, thanks in part to the beloved Hazel McCallion, who was mayor of Mississauga for more than 36 years.

 

Friendly Neighbourhoods

 

Mississauga is a city of neighbourhoods, each with their own particular character. For example, Port Credit, near the waterfront, boasts boardwalks, piers, and a quaint red and white lighthouse. Mineola, an upscale neighbourhood of multi-million dollar homes, has a great balance of trees, parks, and access to the Credit River. Streetsville, known as "the village in the city,” is a charming and eclectic mix of downtown strip and older houses, while the City Centre has amenities within walking distance that include a library, YMCA, City Hall, the Living Arts Centre, and the popular Square One mall. These and many other distinctive neighbourhoods help to give Mississauga its reputation for friendliness, even though it is one of Canada’s largest cities.
