It took the city efforts to abandon the reputation of satellite suburbia to Toronto and became recognized outside Ontario. Sitting in the shadow of its western neighbor, Mississauga was often bypassed by travelers as simply a suburb of Toronto. Over time, Mississauga proved to be a distinct city and today only business unites it with Toronto. As Toronto grew economically, Mississauga took a different tack building low-density tract housing to preserve its small city charm.
This position of local government paid off, making Mississauga a really unique destination. Surprisingly, Mississauga is the only metropolis in Canada without a daily newspaper, television stations or commercial radio stations.
Despite the small town feel, Mississauga features all the comforts of a major destination. It is the 6th largest city in Canada covering 288sqkm of land. During the last two decades the city doubled in size and saw the largest population growth in Canada numbering 89,500 people in the period of 1991-1996. Today it has grown into Canada's sixth-most populous municipality with 668,549 residents.
It is startling growth for a city with farming roots. Mississauga thrived mainly on agriculture in the first half of the 20th century. The first cottages constructed within the city were fueled by the opening of Malton Airport in 1937. Soon the Queen Elizabeth Way highway intensified large-scale development in the area. In 1974 Mississauga became a city.
Today the biggest part of the city’s past is reflected in its numerous attractions.
- Port Credit, a historic area in the heart of Mississauga's Lake Ontario with many small restaurants
- Streetsville offers many shops, restaurants, and green areas to explore
- Art Gallery of Mississauga. A location for national and international contemporary art exhibits
