2/3rds of Mississauga residents live and work in Mississauga, as opposed to the common perception that most commute into Toronto for work. Companies locate there because of strong incentives, proximity to Toronto and good transportation options with highways and airport. However Mississauga has a looming infrastructure crisis (much like any Canadian municipality) which is leading them towards intensification. That and being out of greenfields to develop. Their road network is also ridiculously overbuilt, providing 6 lanes on nearly every major arterial. The built form encourages driving for all trips (plenty of cul de sacs and non-grid subdivisions). An interesting case study.
