Mississauga is a vibrant, diverse and beautiful city. Originally a small suburb – an attractive place to live because of its proximity to Toronto – it is now Canada’s 6th largest city with its own booming economy and all of the desired amenities. Situated along the shores of Lake Ontario and the banks of the Credit River, there are a great variety of residential areas to choose from, both established and new. Mississauga is rich in diversity and a multicultural hub with a flourishing arts and culture scene. It is also home to the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM), part of Canada’s largest university, and Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advance Learning. Dozens of Fortune 500 companies have chosen Mississauga for their International, Global or Canadian headquarters, speaking to the quality of life and opportunities the city has to offer. Rounding out its appeal, the city is well served by highway, public transit and GO Train service. Strong communities, nearly 500 parks, excellent shopping, great schools and a strong business community all make Mississauga a great place to live and work.
