Mississauga & Brampton, are in Peel Region, which is strategically located in the centre of Canada's major consumer and industrial market, the "Golden Horseshoe" of Ontario.
It sits on the western edge of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Formed in 1974, Mississauga is now recognized as Canada's 6th largest and fastest growing major city with a population of 695,000 residents representing cultures from around the world.
Archaeological evidence shows that native peoples had hunting camps and small villages along the Credit and Humber river valleys since 8000 B.C.
The first European to visit the area was the French explorer and fur trader Cavelier de la Salle and Louis Joliet, who arrived at nearby Burlington Bay in 1669 via the Grand River from Lake Erie on their return from Lake Superior.
In the 1720s, the French established trading posts around Lake Ontario, including one near the mouth of the Credit River, named for the custom of trading with the Mississaugas on credit. By the 1860s, Brampton became known as the "Flowertown of Canada," Clarkson was known as the "Strawberry Capital of Canada", and there were apple orchards around Cooksville and Dixie.
In the late 1940s and 1950s the automobile facilitated rapid urban growth around Toronto, and new subdivisions converted rich southern Ontario farmland into acres of suburban homes. In the late 1950s, Bramalea was a planned community of 50,000, built as "Canada's first satellite city" complete with shopping centres, parks, commercial business and industry.
Today Brampton has a population of 433,000 (2006), and has grown by about 100,000 over the previous decade. The community is rapidly becoming urbanized and is a showcase for multicultural harmony.
Mississauga & Brampton are key suburbs in the Greater Toronto Area (the "GTA") with one of Canada's largest concentrations of head offices, as well as major manufacturing, warehousing and logistics.
It is also home to Toronto's Pearson International Airport, Canada's busiest. Large-scale and leading edge industries located in Brampton, and head offices began to flock to Mississauga, both benefiting from their abundance of development land and their proximity to Pearson International Airport. In the nearby rural areas are communities like Bolton, Caledon that are part of Peel Region (and adjacent Orangeville).
