Mississauga - Ontario

Mississauga is a relative newcomer to the roster of Canadian cities. Formed in 1974, the municipality is part of the Greater Toronto area and is home to the Lester B. Pearson International Airport. Contemporary architecture is represented in the City Hall, with its 20-storey clock tower and Great Hall, a room paved in black marble. Mississauga’s architectural tradition has continued with the 2006 architectural design competition, which resulted in the stunning Absolute World.

Since its beginnings as a suburb of Toronto, Mississauga has grown to be the sixth largest city in Canada, with activities for everyone. Ontario’s largest shopping mall is located there, and theatres hold performances of everything from Shakespeare to the latest plays or musicals.

The beauty of nature is evident in Mississauga’s rhododendron gardens and the trees and shrubs of the city’s parks, almost five hundred in number. In season, the salmon migrations in the rivers are a sight to behold. For a quiet walk, a picnic with friends, or a chance to look at flowers, Mississauga always has somewhere to go.

For big-city convenience and small-town warmth, Mississauga is one of Ontario’s premiere destinations.
