Port Credit

Port Credit is located at the south of Mississauga. It’s bounded by the Seneca Ave to the north east, the Canadian National Railway to the north west, Lorne Park neighborhood to the south west, and Lake Ontario to the south east. It is home to one of the original villages that pre-dated Mississauga. The strategic location at the mouth of the Credit River made it an important point for fur trade and exchange of goods by the Ojibwa (now known as the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation). The excellent harbor helped the area to thrive, and a village plan was laid out in 1834. Today Port Credit is one of Mississauga’s most iconic communities with its scenic harbor and thriving main street that features more than 400 shops, restaurants, boutiques and venues.
