Welcome to Port Credit
A chic, scenic town on the shores of Lake Ontario
A chic waterfront town, Port Credit is a popular tourist destination full of lively community happenings. On the shores of Lake Ontario, the harbor marina gives recreational boaters access to all manner of activities. Something is going on every weekend during the summer, and as the weather chills, the town settles in to a sleepy atmosphere with gorgeous winter views.
The early days of Port Credit were defined by industry, including an oil refinery on the outskirts of the village. Over time the industry faded, and Port Credit was merged with the city of Mississauga. Today, the harbor is mainly used for pleasure boating, and the village is a charming community for locals and visitors alike.
Port Credit's real estate options feature a wide variety of architectural styles that date back to the early 20th century. The residential areas are full of Port Credit's unique and charming single-family homes, bungalows, houses, condos, and townhomes; making homes for sale in the town much more coveted. Those who wish to be closer to the downtown area have their pick of luxury condos. Tree-lined streets give way to harbor views, as much of Port Credit is just steps away from the waterfront.
