Mississauga is an extensive Canadian city situated on Lake Ontario's lakefront. It sits on the north shore at the center of the Golden Horseshoe. Preservation of parks, public spaces and wooded areas are done through ingenious government and community partnerships.
It has more than 480 parks and woodlands for you to discover. You can enjoy a variety of recreational activities in serene surroundings such as the Credit River Trails, which allows for multitudes of activities like cycling, jogging, and walking for all age groups. Skating and cross country skiing is also available during the winter months.
The diverse communities bring a vibrant array of cultural markers from their respective motherlands. Stippled all over Mississauga, they include artistic work, types of cuisine, styles of building and other tangible aspects of culture that serve to provide alluring reminders of their various ancestral cultures. It has grown into a city that is envied by many around the world.
And while Mississauga is home to many local treasures, its crowning jewel would undoubtedly be its downtown core, site of one of Canada’s largest retail malls, Square One.
With 360 stores serving 24 million customers per annum, the advanced retail development represented by Square One is mirrored by the cultural achievements of downtown Mississauga’s other tenants: the Mississauga Civic Centre; the 5-storey tall Mississauga Central Library, one of the largest in the GTA; the Art Gallery of Mississauga; the 5,000 square-meter Celebration Square; and the Living Arts Centre, a multi-use facility for multiple arts organizations and home to a 1,350-seat theatre.
But Mississauga’s top institutions are just limited to retail and cultural spaces. As Peel Region’s most educated jurisdiction where nearly 38 percent of the adult population hold a Bachelor’s Degree or higher, Mississauga residents are getting prepared for the job by having a greater concentration of post-secondary qualifications than the national and provincial average. Locals are receiving their school at any of the 15 universities that lie within commuting distance, of which the local campus of the University of Toronto is responsible for enrolling some 13,500 undergraduate students studying in its 15 academic departments and 147 programs.
Projected to reach a population of some 812,000 people by 2031, this growing city continues to attract an increasing number of workers with a need for housing. And, with a motto that reads, "Leading today for tomorrow,” it’s clear that this vibrant city is one of Canada’s cities with a bright future.
Mississauga is bound by Milton and Oakville to the west/southwest, Halton Hills in the north-west corner, Brampton to the north, Toronto to the east, and Lake Ontario to the south/south-east.
Investments are pouring in, building more residential condos and commercial complexes, all the while improving the city's transportation in order to facilitate easy connections to the GTA. It is able to build up and modernize while preserving its natural beauty. Why not commit to purchasing your own humble abode? Don’t pass up on the opportunity to call Mississauga home.
