Q. What is Mississauga like?
A. Metalworks Institute is located in the heart of downtown Mississauga. Formed in 1974, Mississauga is now recognized as Canada’s 6th largest and fastest growing major city with a population of 729,000 residents representing cultures from around the world.

Situated on the outskirts of the province’s capital, Toronto, our location allows students all the amenities of a large city, but with significantly lower costs of living.

There’s plenty to do and lots to see. The campus is walking distance to Square One, one of the largest shopping malls in Ontario, numerous movie theaters, the Living Arts Centre as well as countless restaurants.
