The City of Mississauga and the City of Brampton have a vision for a vibrant Hurontario-Main
corridor from the Lakeshore in Port Credit to downtown Brampton. In 2011, the cities' Master
Plan concluded that Light Rail Transit (LRT) is the preferred form of transit along the
Hurontario-Main corridor. An LRT system, providing key transportation connections to the
cities, both north/south and with the GO Transit system, has been identified as a catalyst for
sustainable, well-managed growth. The Hurontario-Main LRT Project is now in the Preliminary
Design and Transit Project Assessment (TPAP) Phase, which includes design and technical studies
supported by extensive stakeholder and public consultations.
As Canada's sixth largest city, Mississauga is home to 741,000 residents and more than
54,000 businesses, including more than 60 Fortune 500 companies with Canadian head offices or
major divisional head offices. A diverse, progressive and award-winning municipality located on
the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is
"Leading Today for Tomorrow" by focusing on delivering services, implementing its
Strategic Plan, delivering value for money and maintaining infrastructure.
The 9th largest city in Canada, Brampton has a successful, well-diversified economy and is
home to more than 8,000 businesses. The City continues to retain a Triple "A" credit
rating by Standard & Poor's, reflecting its successful economy and debt-free position.
Brampton celebrates its diverse population that represents people from more than 175 distinct
ethnic backgrounds who speak more than 70 different languages. Offering more than 6,000 acres
of parkland, Brampton takes pride in being known as the Flower City of Canada. Brampton has
been designated since 2007 as an International Safe Community by the World Health Organization.
