Most travellers who land at Pearson International Airport actually fail to realize that they’re actually in Mississauga, Ontario.
Mississauga has left its farmland and suburban past far behind, and is now Canada’s sixth largest city, and also one of its safest.
If you’ve just moved to Mississauga’s city centre, you’ll no doubt have noticed the newness of the buildings, the feeling of space between its sky scrapers, and the safety of its streets.
With its urban skyline, Mississauga rates high for quality of life, and is a good option for many new tenants: a short commute to the city for work, a beautiful waterfront on Lake Ontario, and lots of condos, houses and other property to rent at reasonable prices.
Living in Mississauga, you can cycle, roller-blade, jog or walk the 170 km of trails of the city, enjoy fine dining and some great entertainment, and you’re still only a hop and a skip
Mississauga invests in arts and culture, sports, diversity and the environment. It also is host to the University of Toronto Mississauga, the second-largest division of U of T, with more than 18,000 students on the beautiful 225 acres of protected green area.
If you’re a student or young professional, consider renting your new home in Mississauga!
