Where Learning & Community Unite

U of T Mississauga is a place where talent and ideas converge to drive prosperity. We believe that solutions to worldwide challenges begin at home. As such, we promote innovation, inspire creativity and develop talent locally - for the benefit of our region, our country and our world.

In recent years, our region has emerged as one of the most important hubs in Canada’s knowledge economy. In Mississauga alone, there are 1,300 multinational corporations, 61 Fortune 500 companies and 50 Global 500 Canadian head offices or major divisional headquarters. Our community is also home to a growing number of high-tech businesses in the fields of financial services, advanced manufacturing, life sciences and information technology. When you combine Mississauga with the rest of Toronto’s metropolitan region, we are part of a powerful economic engine that creates one-fifth of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product.

In the coming years, we will continue to achieve global presence through our regional impact. We will build on our proven track record for innovation, bringing together the talent and ideas that will forge new paths for economic growth. We will continue to serve our community, by educating globally minded citizens who are prepared to lead in an increasingly complex world and by pursuing the knowledge that will address the most pressing challenges.
