Mississauga

Mississauga is Canada’s sixth largest city! It is also Canada’s fastest growing city with a population of 729,000 residents living in this thriving metropolis. The biggest reason for Mississauga’s growth has been the location. The city is in close proximity to Pearson International Airport, the City of Toronto, several head offices, and the largest Shopping centre in Eastern Canada (Square One). 

Mississauga is a very diverse and multicultural city comprised of several smaller communities. Square One, the Mississauga Civic Centre, the Living Arts Centre and the Mississauga Central Library are clustered in downtown Mississauga, and is the most densly populated region of the city. 

In addition, spread out through-out the city, there are several waterfront parks on the shores of Lake Ontario, two Hospitals (Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre), the Hershy Sports and Entertainment Centre, as well at the Mississauga Campus for the University Of Toronto. 

Mississauga holds the distinction of being rated as Canada’s safest city for 8 years in a row. This family friendly City has 11 community centres, highly-ranked schools, and over 480 parks, plus 23 major trail systems including a beautiful waterfront trail. The MiWay transit system offers a network of bus routes making it easy to get around the city by public transit. Mississauga is a diverse and vibrant city that is truly reflective of the Canadian mosaic. Mississauga has a cherished past and an exciting future. [source]

 

Toronto

Downtown West is Toronto’s most lively neighbourhood. This neighbourhood’s vitality is due to the fact that Toronto’s Entertainment, Fashion, and Financial districts are all located here. Until recently there were limited residential options in Downtown West. However, in the past few years the rezoning of King-Spadina commercial buildings into residential lofts, the downtown condominium and townhome building boom, and the massive redevelopment currently underway at the former railway lands have now made it possible for many more people to live, work and play in this urban neighbourhood.

Toronto, Ontario's capital city, has a vibrant history of change and growth, ranging from its early occupation over 1,000 years ago to its current status as North America's fourth largest city. Toronto is Canada's largest municipality and is made up of the former cities of Toronto, North York, Scarborough, York and Etobicoke, and the former borough of East York. The city is home to a large immigrant population, and is a national and international hub for finance, communications and cultural life. [source]
