The Mississauga Downtown Core area is unlike any downtown in North America. It boasts of about a thousand businesses, ranging from popular retail stores to "mom and pop" restaurants. It is a growing community of highly educated young families and professionals who love the big city lifestyle, but also care deeply about sustainable urban development. Almost 75% of the downtown residents are visible minorities, which speaks to the rich cultural diversity of consumers in the area. The downtown core is home to the famous 'Square One' shopping centre which attracts millions of visitors to the downtown core annually. The area is also home to the Mississauga Celebration Square, which hosts several large festivals and events throughout the year. The business opportunities in Mississauga's Downtown Core are truly endless.
