One of Canada’s largest cities, Mississauga has grown to become a dynamic economic and cultural hub-while still possessing a diversity of residential living experiences.
Mississauga boasts an expanse of Lake Ontario shoreline, with fabulous lakefront properties and numerous watefront promenades being available. The former village of Port Credit has been transformed into a popular pedestrian-friendly retail district. Further north along Hurontario Street-the city’s main thoroughfare, Mississauga City Centre is anchored by the Square One Shopping Centre, and is also home to a large concentration of corporate headquarters. To the west, a string of neighborhoods along the Credit River provide a lush, family-friendly living environment. The former village of Streetsville provides a charming commercial strip in the city’s northwest corner, while a variety of shopping complexes and recreational spaces are scattered throughout the rest of the community.
Transportation in Mississauga
MiWay, the city’s transit agency, offers an extensive network of frequent bus routes. Many of these take advantage of the Mississauga Transitway, which allows for increased service frequency and reliability. The Transitway runs from the vicinity of Pearson Airport west to Winston Churchill Boulevard via Square One, and is served by both GO Transit and MiWay routes. GO also offers rail service to the city. The Lakeshore West parallels Lake Ontario, and enjoys high levels of service seven days a week. The Milton Line cuts through the centre and western reaches of the city, and offers ten weekday round trips. Additionally, upon its opening in 2024 the Hurontario LRT will provide rapid rail service along Hurontario Street, connecting Port Credit, City Centre and Mississauga’s northern neighborhoods. For drivers, Highways 401, 403, 407 410 all serve the city, as does Queen Elizabeth Way.
