Mississauga is a city in Southern Ontario that lies on the shores of Lake Ontario, and is situated in the Regional Municipality of Peel, in the western part of the GTA. The city has a population of well over 700,000 and is Canada's sixth-most populous city.
Initially created as a suburb of Toronto, Mississauga's expansion is accredited to its closeness to that city.
Real estate in Mississauga accommodates the population by being Canada’s sixth largest city. Its closeness to Pearson International Airport and the City of Toronto has led to many corporations deciding to establish their head office here.
Like Toronto, Mississauga is a very diverse and multicultural place that consists of myriad smaller neighbourhoods, each with their own unique identity. Square One, (the largest Shopping centre in eastern Canada) the Mississauga Civic Centre, the Living Arts Centre as well as the humungous Mississauga Central Library are all huddled in Mississauga’s downtown core.
Mississauga also has a revitalized waterfront on the shores of Lake Ontario, amazing conservation lands, two hospitals (Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre), the University Of Toronto’s extensive Erindale College campus, Stage West hotel and entertainment complex and the Hershey Centre which showcases large sport and entertainment events.
