Initially home to the First Nations People. Mississauga is derived from the Anishinaabe word Misi-zaagiing, meaning “[Those at the] Great River-mouth.” Aptly named, Mississauga Ontario, our neighbour to the east, spans from the shores of Lake Ontario and gives way north to the continuous development of homes, commercial establishments including first rate restaurants and shopping. Mississauga is made up of a number of unique villages all in one community including Lakeview, Clarkson, Cooksville, Dixie, Erindale, Lorne Park, Port Credit, Sheridan, and Summerville.
With its proximity to the city (Toronto), Mississauga became a commuter’s dream as it offers great highway access, public transport options, and is home to Canada’s busiest airport, Lester B. Pearson.
Visitors can look forward to exciting events at Civic Square such as the Canada Day celebration, Beachfest, Ribfest, and both the tree lighting ceremony and New Year’s celebration. For those looking for a taste of culture, the Art Gallery of Mississauga offers free admission to all, 7 days a week. Shopping can be found at one of the many malls including Erin Mills Town Centre, Square One, Dixie Outlet, and more. Sports fans can catch a Mississauga Steelheads OHL hockey game at the Hershey Centre or check out the Mississauga Power, the newest addition to the Hershey Centre, their basketball team.
