This riding has the third largest population in the province, having increased by 29 per cent since 1991.

The borders run from the Macdonald-Cartier Freeway in the north to Dundas Street in the south. In the west, it begins at Ninth Line and the city limits of Mississauga and stretches east to the Credit River and the Erin Mills Parkway.

This riding is primarily residential (76 per cent of residents are homeowners) and includes Meadowvale, Streetsville and Erin Mills.

As a result of the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Mississauga West combined one quarter of the old Mississauga West riding with about half of Mississauga North.

Political History:

In the old Mississauga North, PC candidate Terry Jones won in 1975, 1977 and 1981, but lost to Liberal Steve Offer in 1985. Offer sat here through to 1990, serving as solicitor general in 1989.

In 1995, PC candidate John Snobelen defeated Offer and served in the cabinet of Mike Harris. Snobelen was re-elected in 1999, but chose not to seek re-election in 2003 after being consigned to the government back benches by Ernie Eves.

In the old riding of Mississauga West, Liberal Steve Mahoney served from 1987 to 1995, when he was defeated by Tory Rob Sampson.
