As neighbour to Toronto and Canada's 6th largest city by population (over 700,000 per the 2011 census), Mississauga offers both a bustling nightlife around the City Centre as well as quiet suburbia in traditional residential areas. Comprised of many smaller communities and towns, the City of Mississauga was amalgamated in 1974, and runs notth to the Toronto Pearson Airport (and surrounding Malton area, home of the Avro Arrow) and south to Lake Ontario. It spans the area beside and above Oakville to Milton, below Brampton and ends eastward at Toronto/ Etobicoke.
