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]
