East Credit – Mississauga Neighbourhoods

Where’s East Credit Located? 

East Credit is located in north-central Mississauga west of Hurontario, south of Meadowvale Village, east of Streetsvile and Central Erin Mills and north of Erindale separated by Highway 403. East Credit has easy access to Hwys 401 & 403.

The Neighbourhood of East Credit

East Credit is a relatively young neighbourhood in Mississauga (~15-20 years old). It’s mostly defined by the Heartland Town Centre, which is a huge area of standalone restaurants and retail outlets.

It’s also home to BraeBen Golf Course which was curiously yet cleverly built on top of an old garbage dump giving golfers (and soccer golf enthusiasts) some of the most spectacular views anywhere in the GTA.

A word of warning, however, some of the areas do fall in an “aircraft warning zone”. However, unlike Meadowvale Village, I find these zones to not be quite as intrusive.

East Credit Real Estate

East Credit real estate is a traditional mix of 15-20 year old townhome, semi-detached, and detached homes. Styles from the mid 90s don’t exactly match today’s buyers, but there are plenty of people that have kept up with the times.

The “great room” concept of the late 90s is mostly found here so for those who prefer an open concept, these homes will work for you. However, being in that 15-20 year old range means that some of the homes will now need some updating. Styles and trends tend to last about 10-15 years before hitting that “what were we thinking?” stage.

Most of the new entrants are first-time home buyers looking to start a family in Mississauga. The rest are those that bought when the homes first built about 15-20 years ago. They’ve raised their families and are comfortable with the convenience of the neighbourhood.

East Credit Schools

East Credit is a very good school zone in Mississauga. In fact, it boasts one of the best schools in the city – Whitehorn PS, ranked #12 in our Top 25 Schools in Mississauga. On top of that, it also hosts the fantastic Hazel McCallion Sr. middle school and the strong and consistent Rick Hansen SS. Parents in East Credit can rest assured their children are receiving a very good education.
