Mississauga - Meadowvale HistoryThe village of Meadowvale was established in the 1820s by Irish immigrants from the state of New York. In the village's early years, the main industry was milling, with the mills drawing power from the Credit River. Gooderham and Worts owned and operated many businesses in the village in the 1860s and 1870s, including a mill. In the late 1950s, Highway 401 began construction south of Meadowvale Village and was opened several months later.
In 1968, Meadowvale was incorporated into the new Town of Mississauga. In the 1970s, farmland west of the original Meadowvale Village was developed into a series of subdivisions that make up much of present-day Meadowvale. This area has continued to expand ever since, and now fills most of the northwest corner of Mississauga.
Meadowvale village is located adjacent to the largest business park area in Mississauga, with the second largest being located in between Meadowvale Village and Meadowvale along the Hwy 401 corridor, where numerous major corporations have recently located their offices, factories and research and development facilities, including:
Wal-Mart Canada - Retailer
Daimler Chrysler - Car
Siemens - Electronics
GlaxoSmithKline - Pharmaceuticals
