About Mississauga, Ontario

The name Mississauga comes from the Anishinaabe word Misi-zaagling.

For those of you who aren't quite up to speed with your indigenous languages, that means 'those at the Great River mouth'.

Visitors are welcome in Mississauga and people have been coming here from all over the word to find their new home—even if it's just for a week or two.

In fact, just over half of the residents who live in Mississauga were born in another country, making it one of the most multicultural areas in Canada.

Not only does Mississauga have a vibrant city life, there are also 7,720 acres of parks and green spaces for you to enjoy. So, if the city gets a bit much, you're never too far from a relaxing spot away from all the hubbub.

If you recognize some of the areas in the city we won't be surprised. Big Brother Canada debuted on Orbitor Drive, the Carrie remake was shot at Lakeview and the Netflix hit Nikita was shot at popular spots including Celebration Square and City Hall.

You never know, you might get caught up in some on-location filming while you're there!

What to do in Mississauga, Ontario

Head downtown to reach the vibrant heart of the city. There's always something going on, so check the city's calendar before you go and catch a festival or two.

To find out more about the area's history, visit Queen Street. Historic homes line the street, though most have been converted into offices. Enjoy the quaint old-fashioned shops that will definitely sell your perfect souvenir!

Port Credit is a great area for exploring. You can even take a boat out on the lake if you want.

While you're there, go to the Old Credit Micro Brewery. They make small batches of beer using a sub-zero brewing process which pretty much no one else does. And, it tastes fantastic!

If all that wasn't enough, Niagara Falls is an easy day trip away.
