MISSISSAUGA

INTRODUCTION
Mississauga is the sixth largest city in Canada and is located on the western shoreline of Lake Ontario, sharing a close proximity with the city of Toronto. There are approximately 704,000 citizens in the city that spans a total of 112.90 square meters of land. In 2013, Mississauga was once considered the No. 1 mid-sized North American City of the Future by Foreign Investment Direct.

Mississauga took its name from an Algonquian phrase that meant, “Those at the Great Rivermouth. The city has come a long way: from a humble First Peoples settlement into an urban center.  Home of magnificent infrastructure such as Pearson International Airport, the busiest airport in the country, and Ontario’s third largest municipal transit system ferrying over a total of 28 million commuters per year!

BRIEF HISTORY
Colonization of Mississauga began as early as the 1600’s. The first foreigners that reached Mississauga were the French traders. In early 1700’s The Ojibwe migrated south to territories along the Etobicoke Creek, Burlington Bay and Credit River.  This territory was taken over by the British in 1796 after building an inn and trading post in what is currently known as Port Credit.

On April 2, 1802 the representatives of the British Crown and the Indigenous Mississaugans signed the Treaty 13A, surrendering 74,000 acres of land decades following the American Revolution. This event was known as the First Purchase.  The Second Purchase ensued on October 28, 1818 after the bilateral signing of Treaty 19. The coverage of the survey extended up to 600,000 acres.

Settlement of the entire Mississauga territory followed years after the Second Purchase. The town of Clarkson was founded in 1806 by seven families who were loyal to the British Empire during and after the American Revolution. All of the seven settlements (Port Credit, Clarkson, Cooksville, Meadowvale, Streetsville, Erindale and Dixie) experienced growth throughout nearly a century of urbanization.

In 1847, in the midst of the continuous industrial progress, the Indigenous peoples who once occupied the core territories were relocated at the fringe land known as the Grand Valley Reservation. Efforts to attract settlement ensued even after the turn of the century. Cottages were built along the shores of Lake Ontario in 1920’s. It became a tourist vacation hub for inhabitants from the nearby city of Toronto. It wasn’t until 1974 when the Town of Mississauga evolved into a city.

HISTORICAL LANDMARKS
One of the most fascinating historical landmarks in Mississauga was the Port Credit Lighthouse. It was built in 1882 and was destroyed by fire in 1936. Another key historical site was the Benares Historic House, which was once a residential property of the Harris and Sayers families for over 165 years. One of the oldest and most enduring structures within Mississauga is the Leslie Log House, an abode built by pioneering settlers in 1826.

TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
Mississauga has over 20 impressive nature parks, some of the best are located in Port Credit. Square One Shopping Center is a popular venue for visitors who wish to indulge in their own commercial adventures. For travelers who fancy spending their vacation by relaxing, the trendiest site in Mississauga is the Russian-style Steamul Sauna. Any visitor looking for an extraordinary attraction almost often winds up at the Absolute City Center for the iconic Marilyn Monroe towers that stand out for their uniquely curved edifices.

Among the seven settlements that comprised the entire city, only Streetsville seems to have retained its traditional small town guise. Streetsville town square hosts several festive events, particularly live concerts.

THINGS TO DO IN THE CITY
The city of Mississauga has plenty to offer to its visitors. Tourists can either camp in nature parks or cruise along the iconic Credit River. Adventurous tourists also fish and sail on Lake Ontario. Although venturing outside the urban zone seems like a popular pastime recommended for tourists, Mississauga also offers a number of fun indoor activities. One of the most popular pastimes is a game called “axe throwing” (literally throwing hatchets onto a target) held regularly at an amusement club called Bad Axe Throwing. The city’s nightlife is often colored by famous pubs like the Irish spot called Mulligans.

Within the heart of the city, an eclectic selection of events and group activities are held regularly at Celebration Square. These activities can be anything from free movie viewing to a celebration of extraordinary world cultures. Among the many popular locations in the urban core of Mississauga, Celebration Square is the one neighborhood that often proves to be the busiest.  

Mississauga, as you see has much to offer and would be an excellent place to retire.
