Port Credit:  Mississauga’s Village on the Lake

The former Town of Port Credit, a lovely, quaint, lively urban small town 20 min from the big city of Toronto, earned a reputation for its excellent harbour on the shores of Lake Ontario, with grain and lumber its major exports.

Port Credit has a long history dating back to the earliest days of Canada.  The rivers were fished by Native Canadians and first settlers to live in and around the Toronto area.  There are historic buildings and sites such as:  St. Lawrence Starch Company, the Adamson Estate and the Cawthra Estate. 

After the paving of the Lakeshore Highway in 1915, (Hwy 2) Port Credit has become an attractive location for travelers and tourists alike.   It is now an up and coming, sustained 'hot spot' for people who want to live out of the city but not in a typical suburban neighbourhood.  It has lots of small town appeal with trendy bars and restaurants.    There are many shops, boutiques, restaurants, and grocery stores in the Village of Port Credit , and all are within walking distance of the Port Credit Marina.

Port Credit is the home of the annual Mississauga Waterfront Festival
