The village of Erin Mills is an integrated residential, industrial and commercial community. It’s located in the southwest of Mississauga, more specifically south of Streetsville. Erin Mills runs down in length alongside the Credit River; however, the village’s limits end before the river drains into Lake Ontario.
In this guide, I take you through some interesting, entertaining and appetizing places worth checking out in Erin Mills. There is plenty more going on in the village but here are just a few things:
Reggae Fusion is a delicious, authentic Jamaican food joint, serving dishes made with rich flavours and spices from the Caribbean.
