Mississauga is a city in Southern Ontario, located in the Regional Municipality of Peel, just West of Toronto, on the North-Western coast of Lake Ontario. In 2016, Mississauga had a population of 721,599, up from 668,549 in 2006, making the city Canada's sixth-most populous municipality. Until 2006, Mississauga had almost doubled in population in each of the previous two decades. <BR><BR>Mississauga is part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and its job market trends are very interlinked with those of the other GTA-area municipalities, including neighbouring Toronto, Brampton, Oakville, and Vaughan. Mississauga also has a high concentration of Canadian headquarters of large companies. Partly as a result of this, manager jobs in Mississauga amount for a relatively high percentage of the hiring demand in the city. <BR><BR><B>Mississauga's Labour Force</B><BR>Because the city is part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), many Mississauga jobs are occupied by employees who live in other GTA municipalities. At the same time, many local residents commute daily to jobs outside of Mississauga. According to the Statistics Canada 2016 census, 27.1% of commuters who lived in Mississauga and had a usual place of work travelled to work in the city of Toronto. In spite of this, thanks to the sizeable local economy, 55% of commuters who lived in Mississauga also worked in Mississauga.<BR><BR>Mississauga is also a home to a diverse and well educated population. The share of local residents with a university degree or diploma is well above the national average. 2 out of every 3 adult Mississauga residents (ages 25 to 64) have post secondary education. Over a third of Mississauga's adult working age residents hold a university degree. Ongoing regional labour supply analysis that Vicinity Jobs produced in 2016 by analyzing hundreds of thousands of job seeker profiles also provides a strong evidence that the share of Mississauga's job seekers with Graduate and Undergraduate degree is substantially higher than Ontario's provincial average. As a result, Mississauga has a greater concentration of post-secondary qualifications in Business Management, Public Administration, Architecture, Engineering and Related Technologies when compared to most other Canadian locations.<BR><BR><B>Free Employment Services in Mississauga</B><BR><BR>There are many organizations that provide Mississauga job seekers with free employment assistance and advice, with funding provided largely by the Governments of Ontario through the Employment Ontario program, and Canada's Federal Government. As of 2017, these organizations include the Dixie Bloor Neighbourhood Centre, COSTI Employment Services, Job Skills (a partner organization of Vicinity Jobs, ACCESS Employment, Malton Employment Services (operated by the Centre for Education and Training). Some organizations provide specialized assistance geared towards specific groups of job seekers in Mississauga. For example, the Coalition For Persons With Disabilities delivers pre-employment and employment programs for persons with disabilities, while COSTI, Dixie Bloor, and the Brampton Multicultural Community Centre also provide programs and resources for newcomers / new immigrants to Canada. An up-to-date list of the employment service providers in Mississauga is published on the website of the City of Mississauga.
