Why you'd want to live in Mississauga
Mississauga, city, regional municipality of Peel, southeastern Ontario, Canada. It lies at the western end of Lake Ontario, immediately southwest of Toronto. First settled in the early 19th century on land purchased from the Mississauga Indians, the township of Toronto gave rise to the villages of Port Credit (incorporated 1934) and Streetsville (incorporated 1958), both of which became towns in the early 1960s. On January 1, 1968, the entire township, exclusive of Port Credit and Streetsville, was incorporated as a town, one of the largest and most densely populated in Canada, and in 1974 Mississauga became a city.
