Lakeview Community in Mississauga
In the 1800’s the Mississauga Purchase was a land purchase treaty between the Mississauga Indians and the British Government which opened the doors for a new area for colonization. Lakeshore Road and Dundas Road were created to facilitate the new wave of immigrants. On Lakeshore Road, along each of the rivers, large creeks and cross roads and communities developed. They are known today as Burlington, Bronte, Oakville, Clarkson, Port Credit, Lakeview and Long Branch.
The Lakeview Mississauga community joined the Town of Mississauga in 1968. Lakeview was formerly a part of the Toronto Township which is located in East Port Credit in the southeastern corner of the city in Peel Region. Lakeview borders along the northern shore of Lake Ontario, south of Lake Shore Road, east of Etobicoke Creek and west of Cooksville Creek.
This area was largely rural with small communities at various crossroads. The first airport in Canada was located on the present day grounds of the old Lakeview Generating Station. It was here that pilots were trained for overseas aerial warfare. The Federal government had obtained a large tract of lakefront land in the eastern end of Lakeview for various military purposes. Given the fact that many of the men were off fighting in the war, women were given the opportunity to become highly skilled trade people.
So by the 1840s, these areas turned their forests into farms, in fact, many streets in the Lakeview Community carry the family names of these same farmers and land owners today.

The Lakeview area today consists of a largely suburban economy with light industrial along much of the prime lakefront land south of Lakeshore Road.
With each shift in its composition, the Lakeview area continued to develop and change to reflect the needs of its community.
