The sixth largest city in Canada continues to grow

HOUSING OPTIONS

Initially a suburb of Toronto, Mississauga’s growth has given it a unique identity. In 1935, the first suburban developments – corresponding with the opening of the QEW from Highway 27 to Highway 10 – popped up in the area south of the Dixie Road and QEW interchange. Over time, development moved north and west and large-scale developments started to happen in the 1960s and ’70s. Mississauga saw a condo boom starting in the 1990s and the area around Square One is now full of highrise buildings. Click here to see a list of homes for sale.

Streetsville holds its annual Bread and Honey Festival the first weekend of June and Port Credit holds multiple festivals throughout the year, including Buskerfest, the Waterfront Festival, and the Southside Shuffle Blues & Jazz Fastival.
