12 Signs You Grew Up In Mississauga

You're from where?

Mississauga.

Where?

Toronto.

Mississauga is home to over 700,000 people, making it the largest suburb in Anglo-America. It is located in Southern Ontario and if you think you can get away with saying “Sauga”, you’re wrong. It is a city that is constantly developing to the point where you probably wouldn’t recognize it if you left and came back after one year.

If you are a 90’s baby that grew up during the 2000’s you are most likely going to thrive off of how much you relate to these 12 signs that you grew up in Mississauga: 

1. You are VERY well aware that Ryan Gosling’s mom works at Port Credit High School.

2.When someone asks you where you are from you never hesitate to say “Toronto”.

3.You’ve never actually seen all of Mississauga because seriously, who decided to make all of that land one city anyways?

4.You remember when Square One looked like this.
