Mississauga, incorporated in 1974, is located in the Regional Municipality of Peel in the western part of the Greater Toronto Area. With a population of just over 700,000, it is Canada's sixth-most populous municipality, and has almost doubled in population in each of the last two decades.
Initially developed as a suburb of Toronto, Mississauga's growth is attributed to its proximity to that city. However, Mississauga's extensive corporate and industrial employment opportunities differentiate it from suburban bedroom communities. The city has also been trying to create a distinctive image for itself over the past few years. It held an international architectural design competition in 2006 for a 56-storey condominium tower, to be called Absolute World, that is intended to be a landmark for the city. The city is debt-free and has not borrowed money since 1978. Mississauga may have to borrow money to build new capital projects in 2012.
With five major freeways passing through the city, Mississauga offers quick access to major markets in Canada, in addition to large markets in the Northeastern and Midwestern United States. Toronto Pearson International Airport, Canada's busiest, is located in the city. Residents of the city are called Mississaugans. Mississauga has one of the largest corporate/financial districts in Canada.
