Mississauga Neighbourhood Guide

Port Credit

Home Prices: High
With a history of over 300 years, Port Credit is by far the oldest village in Mississauga.  Remaining an independent town until it amalgamated with the City of Mississauga in 1974,  Port Credit has maintained its distinctive character as a small urban village which is different from the majority of Mississauga's other, more suburban neighbourhoods.

Lorne Park

Home Prices: Very High
In the late 1800's, Lorne Park used to be the "Hamptons" for Toronto's upper-class.  As it came into the fold of Mississauga, it did not lose its high end appeal.  Drive through the area and it is easy to see why; quiet streets, mature trees, character homes...quiet elegant living.


Home Prices: Moderate to High
Lakeview is an up and coming popular destination for people who like close access to Lake Ontario and downtown Toronto.  Lakeview is undergoing a waterfront development plan that will continue to drive interest to this village within the city.  Many of the homes in Lakeview are traditional post war cottage homes on generous sized square lots; perfect for renovators and people looking to customise their home.


Home Prices: Affordable to Very High
Those who love Clarkson, love it a lot.  With its relatively affordable homes, it's own downtown in revival, and proximity to Toronto, there is an appeal for those who still want some urban life to their style.  On the other hand, there are large swatches of less desirable condos along the ever-busy GO Train, the schools for the area are not top ranking, and though the area is gentrifying, it still has some distance to go.  Great for some but not for all, Clarkson is a village to watch in the future.


Home Prices: Moderate to High
Streetsville Village has a history of almost 200 years, and was founded in 1820.  This area flanks the Credit River from the 401 south to around Bristol Road, between Erin Mills Parkway and Creditview.  It includes the original historic areas as well as suburban developments spanning from the 1950's, through to the 2000's.  Streetsville has a beautiful and vibrant downtown core that runs along Queen Street, with plenty of charm, community and activities.

Churchill Meadows

Churchill Meadows is located south of Britannia Road between Winston Churchill and Ninth Line.  Not much more than 10 years old, Churchill Meadows is very popular with families looking for a modern, turnkey home in a safe, well planned community.  Homes in Churchill Meadows were designed with a nod to old world charm, and the neighbourhood was designed to become a walking community in generations to come.  The homes are tightly packed, and as more amenities fill in, it will become a village with an urban vibe,  yet with all the benefits of suburbia.
