With a population of 10,260 for the 2001 Census, this quaint village is found at the mouth of the Credit River on the north shore of Lake Ontario, within the city of Mississauga. Port Credit's boundaries are the Canadian National Railway tracks to the north, Seneca Street and the western edge of the Adamson Estate to the east and Godfrey's Lane and the townhome complex located on the west side of Shawnmarr Road to the west.
The face of Port Credit — the lighthouse situated on the banks of the Credit River — is getting a facelift this summer.
“The facelift is part of the building’s natural life cycle maintenance and will address current functional, safety and accessibility deficiencies to improve the longevity of the building,” said project coordinator Andrew Mills from the City of Mississauga. Mills highlighted that the architectural shape and colour scheme will be preserved.
The current lighthouse was constructed in 1991 as a replica of the original lighthouse which was in service from 1882 until 1918. The facility was destroyed by fire in 1936. Rebuilt by the Lions Club of Credit Valley atop a sewage pumping station, it is now the home of the local Business Improvement Association and tourist bureau. Its logo is used by many local organizations.
