Port Credit is every bit as old as Toronto – both were founded in 1834 – but where Toronto expanded into a megalopolis, Port Credit has retained its small-town roots even as it embraces the role of Mississauga’s waterfront entertainment hub for shopping, events, music and dining. This beautiful community is becoming a popular retirement destination because it offers something for everyone – even people without a car, which can’t be said for other parts of the city.
Who Lives Here
Living in Port Credit is an absolute dream for business professionals who are commuting to Toronto. If you can get in to one of the mid-rise or high-rise towers near the Port Credit GO (which is just 3 blocks from the Waterfront), you’ll find you love living just 10 minutes to the station.
What you will Love
There are hundreds of retail shops, boutiques, services, restaurants and cafes along the highly walkable Lakeshore strip, close to public transit and residential neighbourhoods that make living in Port Credit a popular choice for many people. The Harbour is a year-round part of Port Credit but when you are living in Port Credit you will see how it really comes alive in the warmer season – no wonder this is such a popular summer tourist destination.
