Formed in 1974, Mississauga is now recognized as one of Canada's largest and fastest growing cities with a population of over 600,000 representing cultures from around the world.  It is located on the shores of Lake Ontario.


Mississauga is home to Lester B. Pearson International Airport and the greatest concentration of major highways in the country, all of which position Mississauga to serve local, national and international markets and travelers. Local public transit is linked to Toronto and other neighboring cities, offering a comprehensive network of bus, subway and commuter train routes.


Recognized for being one of the safest cities in Canada, Mississauga is a major focal point for commercial activity, rich in arts, cultural facilities, parks, entertainment, nightlife and world class sport and recreational facilities for all interests that attract residents and visitors alike. Full of tremendous shopping opportunities and home to Square One, Ontario's largest mall, Mississauga is the place to shop till you drop.


Explore quaint historic villages, visit the bustling waterfront, or be inspired by Mississauga's world-class art and theatre at the Living Arts Centre. Visit the Rhododendron Gardens, which feature beautiful hybrid rhododendrons along with other acid loving woodland and mountain plants that are in bloom from mid-May through mid-June.


You’ll want to make sure the peace memorial is on your itinerary when you visit Mississauga.  It’s situated just east of the Central Library beside the Civic Centre and in front of the Civic Square.  This unique memorial is 36 metres long with a 27 metre long waterfall flowing over the inscription "In Memory Of Those Who Gave Their Lives For Freedom".  It was unveiled in 1992 and honours all those in Mississauga who fought to keep Canada free.  One can appreciate the memorial day or night, because it is illuminated year-round by lighting that comes on at dusk. 


For a change of pace and a bit of activity, stop by the Skatepark on Matheson Boulevard.  Whether a participant or observer, the skateboarders at Skatepark are sure to keep you entertained.  Skateboarders can be found practicing their street tricks on ¼ pipes, banks, ledges, rails, transitions and even a bowl. Whether you choose an activity-packed weekend or a relaxing getaway, your stay will be memorable.


From stunning architecture and museums to lakefront parks and vibrant ethnic neighborhoods, Mississauga keeps visitors coming back again and again.
