WELCOME TO MISSISSAUGA AND THE GREATER TORONTO AREA!

The Greater Toronto Area is heralded as one of the most multicultural cities in the world with over 140 languages and dialects spoken, and just over 30 per cent of area residents speak a language other than English or French at home. Formed in 1974, Mississauga is now recognized as Canada's 6th largest and fastest growing major city with a population of 729,000 residents representing cultures from around the world.

Mississauga Is Canada's Gateway
Canada’s 6th largest city and Home to Toronto Pearson International, Canada's largest airport servicing 32 million passengers on more than 70 airlines with non-stop service to 180 destinations in 60 countries around the globe. Mississauga is also within a day's drive of North America's richest markets with access to 164 million consumers. From stunning architecture and museums to lakefront parks and vibrant ethnic neighbourhoods, Mississauga offers a range of experiences that keeps visitors coming back again and again with more than 480 parks & 23 major trail systems including part of a 485 mile (780 km) waterfront trail running from Niagara-on-the-Lake to the Quebec border.

Get outside and explore Mississauga's more than 480 parks and woodlands. Opportunities for making the most out of the area's green spaces are endless and change with the seasons: cycling, in-line skating, tennis and soccer in summer; cross-country skiing, ice skating and tobogganing in winter.


The Waterfront Trail is more than 650 km (400 miles) long and runs along the shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River, stretching from Niagara-on-the-Lake all the way to the Quebec border. In Mississauga, the 22 km (15-mile) trail stretches from Etobicoke Creek through to the Oakville border.

Explore Mississauga's public galleries. The Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM) possesses four well-used exhibit spaces that display works in a variety of media from Canadian and local artists.
