Mississauga: Skilled, Well-Educated, Talent Pool

The knowledge economy is a human race — the competition between the best companies in the world for the brightest minds in business, science, technology, and all manner of industry.

Location Canada 2015
The knowledge economy is a human race — the competition between the best companies in the world for the brightest minds in business, science, technology, and all manner of industry. Mississauga is where leading companies win that competition. Skilled, well-educated, inquisitive people in the hundreds of thousands comprise this city’s greatest advantage. So much so, that when landing at Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, the port of entry sign might easily read “Welcome to Our Talent Pool.”

Over 62,000 companies call Mississauga home. Over 1,400 multinationals turn on the lights here every morning. As do 380 life sciences companies, 4,200 technology companies, and a growing network of entrepreneurial go-getters that stretches from one of the world’s great fresh water lakes on Mississauga’s southernmost border to the farmlands just north and to the west.
