Popular industries are pharmaceuticals, banking and finance, electronics and computers, aerospace, transportation parts and heavy equipment industries. Mississauga City Council consists of the mayor and eleven city councillors, each representing one of the city’s eleven numbered wards. The growth of Mississauga is attributed to its proximity to Toronto. During the latter half of the 20th century, the city attracted a multicultural population and built up a thriving central business district. It is home to Toronto Pearson International Airport, Canada’s busiest airport, and serves as the headquarters for many Canadian and multinational corporations. The City of Mississauga has been routinely recognized locally, nationally and internationally for providing innovative and cost-effective programs and services and to generally improve the quality of life of its residents through good governance.
