Mississauga is good at growing! Not long ago, the City of Mississauga was a collection of small communities spread over a largely rural area. In the last 30 years, the City has more than quadrupled its population from 172,000 people to more than 770,000 today.
We are on the north shore of Lake Ontario at the centre of the Golden Horseshoe, Canada's economic powerhouse. The country's largest airport sits in the northeastern corner of our City, we have access to major rail corridors and three of the busiest highways in the country connect us to the rest of Ontario, Canada and the United States. You can get to anywhere from here. And it's a great place to live.
We are on track for a population of well over 800,000 in less than 20 years. Our City has a Strategic Plan and Official Plan that will make sure we're prepared.
