In case you didn’t know, Mississauga is the sixth largest city in Canada, coming ahead of Vancouver and Winnipeg. So it’s safe to say that many companies have decided to make the city their base of operations – and also one of the many reasons people want to call Mississauga home. You can’t beat that metropolitan feel without the hustle and bustle of big city, day-to-day life.

Recently, Forbes magazine put out a list of who Canada’s best employers are, and, unsurprisingly, many in Mississauga made the cut. Perhaps it’s time to make Mississauga your next city for business travel. We count down the Top 5, starting with Number 5. 

Canada Cartage (1115 Cardiff Blvd.)

Founded in 1914, the country’s largest provider of outsourced fleet solutions has had over a century to master its craft, which also includes managed transportation, home delivery, warehousing and fulfillment solutions.

Ericsson (2425 Matheson Blvd., #200)

One of the world leaders in communications technology and services, Ericsson works with every major telecom operator – so it’s clearly doing something right.

GlaxoSmithKline (7333 Mississauga Rd.)

The pharmaceuticals company was founded in the U.K. in 2000, and specializes in everything from prescription medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products. You may not recognize its logo but their brands are another story, from Buckley’s and NeoCitran, to Sensodyne and Tums.

FedEx (5985 Explorer Dr.)

The shipping company has been around for over four decades and its reliability and award-winning customer service only adds to its stellar reputation.

Microsoft (1950 Meadowvale Blvd.)

Moving on up from the No. 5 spot in 2019 is the tech giant. Situated just off Mississauga Rd., between Hwys 401 and 407, Microsoft – which has made a name in the worlds of IT, software, Internet and other services – has been in the city for years, along with its nine regional offices around the country. But its Mississauga headquarters won’t be around for much longer. By September 2020, Microsoft is set to move to Toronto’s CIBC Square, taking up four floors in a new, state-of-the-art space.
