Welcome to Port Credit

Port Credit, or Mississauga’s Village on the Lake, is a unique community nestled directly on Lake Ontario and the mouth of the Credit River. Port Credit has been traced back to as early as the mid to late 1700s, where it began as a fishing port and a trading post. Today Port Credit holds true to its community values with a modern flair. Its beautiful homes, Main Street shops, waterfront trails, fine and casual dining, cafés, pubs, marinas, and parks truly make Port Credit the perfect retreat from a hectic urban lifestyle. 

The area of Mineola east and west is located just north of the Village of Port Credit. Majestic trees and expansive lots are characteristics of these exclusive neighbourhoods. The area of Mineola West is considered one of the top 10 communities in the GTA. Kenollie Public School, located in Mineola West, is one of the best in all of Mississauga. EQAO scores are significantly higher in this school than city averages. With excellent schools and proximity to downtown Toronto, Mineola is fast becoming one of Mississauga's most coveted areas.

People & Lifestyle 

Port Credit community residents are always steps away from seasonal festivals and the exciting array of food and entertainment. Families enjoy the many parks, schools, and sports teams within the community. Singles and couples always have a “spot” on the weekends, both casual and semi-casual. Walker, joggers, bikers, and pet owners enjoy the sightseeing trails, bike paths, and leash-free zones. Shoppers don’t even have to travel far to choose from many high-end shops, spas, salons, pharmacies, and specialty shops.

Port Credit’s real estate market has held strong as it continues to grow, with many new and exciting communities being built. Just a 20-minute commute to Union Station, access to transit, highways, and Pearson International Airport makes this a prime location for workers. With various homes available next to shops, close to parks, and on the waterfront, Port Credit is truly a unique neighbourhood within the Greater Toronto Area.

Peter Kuitenbrouer of The National Post has called Port Credit “The most happening area in the 905.” Kuitenbrouers’ discovery, although already known by current residents, is the perfect way to describe the friendly, proud, and entertaining village of Port Credit.
