When you think of Mississauga, Port Credit is one of the first neighbourhoods that springs to mind. As one of the most identifiable Mississauga neighbourhoods it is also one of the most popular neighbourhoods. You will find the delightful Port Credit nestled in the south-central locale of Mississauga. The notable boundaries are The Canadian National Railway to the north, Seneca Avenue to the east, Shawmarr Road to the west and the beautiful Lake Ontario to the south.

Port Credit is endowed with all the trimmings that make up a truly desired destination. The first and foremost attribute is, of course, its location, Port Credit is close to Metropolitan Toronto and comfortably situated on the waterfront. If that was not enough, Port Credit boasts a thriving main street village shopping and offers all the recreational conveniences a person or family could hope for. What could be better you ask, why it has a Go Transit station as well.

Port Credit has seen a recent revitalization of the waterfront which has led to a surge in real estate interest and development. The Resident’s Association and the Business Improvement Association work diligently to provide a booming and vibrant, yet safe and quaint neighbourhood for all to enjoy and be proud to call home.


Port Credit is a veritable treasure of blended architectural styles. Nestled in smaller nooks are the grand heritage homes that follow the Tudor and Arts and Crafts architectural design, followed closely with many attractive brick bungalows. These bungalows enjoy large lots and are great for starter family homes as well as attracting developers who can offer larger custom designed homes on them. The newer residential developments have seen quality townhomes and condominium buildings enjoying the waterfront revitalization progression. There is literally something for everyone, for the active single or new couple or the young family as well as the zoomer looking to downsize without sacrificing a comfortable and quaint place to live, play and grow.


Living large is the lifestyle of Port Credit. It is easily one of the most attractive and vibrant destinations in Mississauga. The waterfront is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable attractions, but Port Credit also offers well over 400 retail shopping opportunities along with a plethora of entertainment and dining establishments to offer year-round enjoyment. Whether it is a night out with your friends, or your significant other or the entire family you will find exactly what you are looking for.


Nothing could be finer than to spend a day, or evening strolling along the banks of the Credit River. The river also offers the chance to dip your oar or motor in and spend the day on the water. The fishing is one of the main attractions in the summer hosting an annual Salmon Fishing Derby. The winter months are not to be outdone with the beautiful landscape offering outdoor activities as well, cross-country skiing, skating or a good old-fashioned snowball fight.
