Although Mississauga was only established as a city in 1974, it dates back to the 1600s when European settlers arrived. It later became a town, followed by having city status, but due to its history, it is home to plenty of historic sites. It is also home to Lester B. Pearson International Airport, which is Canada’s largest and busiest air hub. Today Mississauga is still growing and is fast becoming a major business centre. It also has a thriving arts community, shopping centres, recreational areas and quant villages.
