Erin Mills, a planned community was conceived, planned and developed by the Cadillac Fairview Corporation on 8,000 aces of farmland in Mississauga. Erin Mills is an integrated residential, industrial and commercial community with commercial uses concentrated in the centre and industrial uses on the periphery.
The name ‘Erin Mills’ was the creation of land developers, likely for its close proximity to Erindale, a historical village whose earlier inhabitants had renamed it in honour of their former homeland, Ireland. The second part Mills makes reference to the many grist mills that were operating on the banks of the nearby Credit River, although none of them were physically located in what is today Erin Mills.
Erin Mills, although not the most densely populated area in Mississauga, is one of the most populous and one of the fastest growing areas. It is the largest geographic area in Mississauga, occupying much of the western section.
Neighbourhoods Within Erin Mills
Erin Mills South, the 1st phase, was later known as Erin Mills was built beginning in the early 1970’s continuing through the decade.
Erin Mills West, the 2nd phase of the “New Town” development, was completed in the mid 1980’s.
Erin Mills Central, phase 3 if fully developed. This phase contained everything from hi-rise condominiums to large low density housing. The focal point is the Erin Mills Town Centre, completed in 1989. The largest hospital in the area, Credit Valley Hospital is located in this area. The older village of Streetsville sits adjacent to Erin Mills Central to eh east running along the Credit River.
Churchill Meadows, phase 4 was mostly developed from 2000 to 2010. Much of the subdivision is low to medium density residential and as with the previous phases, land for parks has been protected from development. Unlike the previous phases, Churchill Meadows was built with a relatively permeable street network, and creek courses were not preserved.
