Description: The Credit River flows for 58 miles through the Peel and Iroquois Plains and is noted as a cultural landscape for a variety of reasons. The Credit River corridor is a scenic rare natural landmark in the city. The Mississaugas settled on the banks of the river until they were displaced by European settlers. Pioneers established mills on the river in Meadowvale Village, Streetsville and Erindale, some of which remain. The river is not only ecologically significant but is also an invaluable archaeological site which yields information about our native, pioneer and industrial history, as well as a link to the historic community development along the river corridor. This aerial view of the river was taken near to Erindale College, now the University of Toronto at Mississauga.
