22 Of The Coolest People From Mississauga

From singers to athletes to one long serving mayor.

A 30-minute commute from Toronto, Mississauga is Canada's sixth largest city.

Home of the "The Marilyn Monroe Towers" and quaint neighbourhoods like Streetsville and Port Credit, the city actually has a larger population than Vancouver and Quebec City.

And with so much history that goes back to the 1600s, Mississauga has developed quite the charm as well as an array of talent.

Celebrities from Mississauga were either born in the Ontario city, raised there or talk about their hometown even after they got famous.

From well-known actresses like Shay Mitchell of "Pretty Little Liars," to the Appleton sisters of All Saints to NHL hockey players that have made their mark in the industry, Mississauga is full of all types of talent.

Here are 22 people from the city who have called it their home. And of course, while we couldn't cover every single person out of Mississauga, let us know, who did we miss?
