Mississauga – Canada’s 6th Largest City!
Mississauga – A Popular Place to Call Home
Mississauga was formed in 1974 and is now established as the fastest growing city with a population of 729,000. Mississauga is a truly multicultural city and is home to the Toronto Pearson International airport. It is the second most popular city in the Greater Toronto Area, after Toronto.
Mississauga has been recognized as the safest city in Canada 8 years in a row now. The city offers a vibrant downtown core with shopping, entertainment and condo living. Apart from this, the city has a number of sports facilities and 11 community centres offering family-oriented activities. Mississauga is truly green with more than 480 parks and 23 major trail systems.
Mississauga is proudly also home to major offices for 61 of the Fortune 500 Canadian companies and Canadian headquarters for 50 of the Fortune 500 Global companies.
Mississauga – Downtown 21 Master Plan
The City’s is working on a fully revitalized and accessible downtown core which will be a feast to the eyes, and to the feet! It will feature walkable streets, public squares, outdoor markets, an entertainment district to experience various arts and cultures. All this to be enjoyed by people who live, visit or work in downtown Mississauga. Getting in and out of downtown will be easier too – thanks to an expanded network of bike paths for locals, and a better and more efficient connectivity across the Greater Toronto Area for out-of-towners.
Mississauga – Transportation
GO Transit is the rail and bus system connecting major neighbourhoods in Mississauga with Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. MiWay is Mississauga’s public transit system. MiExpress for express travel on blue buses, and MiLocal for local travel on orange buses. And then The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is the public transit system in Toronto, with the nearest station at Kipling for Mississauga residents.
Mississauga – Neighbourhoods
Popularly known as the “City of Villages,” Mississauga is celebrated for its multicultural diversity and vibrant spirit. The city has many unique neighbourhoods and picturesque conservation areas, from the spectacular waterfront of Port Credit to the quaint Streetsville, to the exquisite Rattray Marsh Conservation area, there is a lot to experience in Mississauga.
For purpose of identifying residential neighbourhoods, Mississauga real estate is broken down into five zones: Central, East, West, North, South. These zones, together with neighborhoods that I serve with my team of neighbourhood experts, are listed below.
