Port Credit was originally a settlement of the Mississauga Ojibwe first nations band. It was an important trading post established in 1720.  Here goods from the Europeans were traded for furs trapped by the Mississaugas. After the War of 1812, a harbour was established by the Mississaugas together with European settlers. In 1847, the Mississaugas left the village periphery. The area once included an oil refinery, but the village is now no longer a substantial industrial district. It became an independent municipality in 1909. In 1974 it merged with the City of Mississauga.

Today, the original core village is a heritage conservation district. Here is a guide for a heritage walking tour of this district as you consider Port Credit homes for sale.

Port Credit’s harbour is now mostly used for recreational boating. For sports fishing enthusiasts, it is the “Salmon Capital” of Ontario. It features the largest charter boat fleet on Lake Ontario. Its July 1st Canada Day “Paint The Town Red” event includes a parade, a Busker Fest, a Farmers Market and an Art Show along Mississauga’s Waterfront Trail.

All these things add to Port Credit’s charm and exciting vibrancy. It was dubbed “the most happening place in the 905” (i.e. the Greater Toronto Area) by National Post reporter Peter Kuitenbrouer for its artful combination of small town charm with cosmopolitan flair and savvy. This all adds to the enduring investment value of Port Credit’s homes for sale.
