Milton and Halton region boundaries shift
The Town of Milton and Halton Region and the City of Mississauga received approval from the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing to realign the municipal boundary effective January 1, 2010. This results in a strip of land along the eastern boundary of the Town of Milton moving into the jurisdiction of the City of Mississauga. The area is bordered by Highway 401 to the north, Highway 403 to the south, Highway 407 to the east and Ninth Line to the west. The previous boundary between Mississauga and Milton was Ninth Line. In terms of local heritage, this change of municipal boundaries places several heritage properties within Mississauga which were previously part of the Town of Milton, including St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church, the heritage designated Bussell House, and several others. In the years to come we look forward to further documenting the history of this area.
