A city full of culture and excitement for all.
Founded in 1805 as Toronto Township, and established as Mississauga in 1968, Mississauga is known as one of Canada’s fastest-growing cities. Named for the Aboriginal nation of Mississaugas who originally occupied the land and still live in the city, this land is full of beautiful hiking and waterscapes, with gorgeous views of Lake Ontario and the Credit River across the different neighbourhoods.
It’s easy to understand why Mississauga is so popular – its easy access to the downtown core of Toronto makes it an attractive place to live for commuters who don’t want to travel far from work but still want to be close to the amenities of the city. Over 700,000 people live in Mississauga, with over 50% of the population being new immigrants to Canada.
The people of Mississauga are welcoming and friendly, and love to embrace culture and traditions from around the world. Find a Mississauga home for sale and see why so many people love to live in this bustling city!
What to Love
Mississauga is considered one of the safest places to live in Ontario and is a bustling and exciting place to live for you and your family. Whether you’re looking for a starter home as you begin placing roots, or are downsizing as your children grow older, Mississauga and its people are excited and thrilled to welcome you.
With such a large immigrant population, Mississauga is full of culture and language. Over 50% of the population speak a language other than English, so you’ll be sure to find many voices across the city.
An added benefit of Mississauga is its nearness to Toronto. Mississauga offers all the benefits of suburban living: close-knit neighbourhoods, good schools, and hundreds of woodland areas and parks, while also providing the excitement that Toronto has to offer. With access to the city just a few stops on the highway or GO Transit away, it’s easy to head downtown to take on a concert or take the family out to a major sports game.
Best of all is Mississauga’s accessibility. Mississauga offers plenty of public transit for all, with its bus system flowing through the entire city effectively. The MiWay system also connects to other towns and cities in the GTA including nearby Oakville, Brampton, and Toronto.
Mississauga offers some of the most abundant cultures around, and that can be seen in the many restaurants, shops, and other amenities in the area. International cuisine is found at several different local restaurants, from tapas in Port Credit to Egyptian in Streetsville. Mississauga also hosts a variety of festivals and events at Celebration Square, including Carassauga, Canada Day celebrations, annual tree lighting Ceremonies, and a New Year’s Eve bash! Shopping is easy in the area, with a variety of malls including one of Canada’s largest, Square One Shopping Centre.
For those who enjoy watching or playing sports, Mississauga has plenty to do as well, with several recreation centres and trails to visit and the Paramount Fine Foods Centre to watch your favourite players.
