The Mississauga First Nation people as Missinnihe, which translates to “trusting creek”, historically knew the Credit River. They met with European traders and settlers on the banks of this river to exchange furs and other goods.
French fur traders gave the river the name “Rivière au Crédit,” because they sold goods to the Mississauga First Nation people in the winter on credit, with the understanding that the native people would deliver furs in return in the warmer months.
