While the whole area has a lot going for it, including unique entertainment districts, historical sites and famous landmarks, it also has a not so lovely side. Although the total crime rates in Mississauga have been on the decline over the last decade, its close proximity to Toronto, a city known for making some less than desirable top ten crime lists, makes it hard to not be impacted by those crimes. Break-ins, carjackings and robberies are to be expected in big cities like Toronto, but many seek the refuge of outlying cities, like Mississauga to escape such things. Unfortunately it’s not always that easy. If you live in a major city or a neighbourhood known for its crime rates, its only good sense to make sure you have adequate car insurance, life insurance and medical coverage.

Besides the inescapable existence of crime in major cities, commuter traffic is also a big concern. Highways, like the 401, which see high speeds and high volumes combined on a daily basis are a disaster waiting to happen. Between eighteen-wheelers and road-rage, some pretty horrific and catastrophic accidents have taken place. Add on top of this the amount of snow Southern Ontario sees each year, and you have the makings of doubly-difficult roads for half of the year. Living in areas such as this can make finding an affordable insurance company difficult, but guaranteed issue insurance is available. It’s one of the sacrifices you make for convenience. If you want to be in or near the big city, you often have to pay big city rates for things like car or health insurance.
One of the major bonuses of Mississauga, however, is its cultural diversity. The city has a wonderfully eclectic mix of Chinese, Aboriginal, African American, Caucasian, Japanese and Filipino residents (just to name a few), which translates to a variety of naturally occurring language groups. Other attractions to the city include its shopping and retail sector, which people travel from far and wide to partake in, and its sporting culture which hosts dozens of teams across an array of sports.
The city is a popular location for students, both those attending institutions in Mississauga and Toronto alike. Insurance is an important consideration for students, especially those who are attending school far from home. While many schools issue student medical insurance, it’s always best to have your own. School is an environment that exposes students to hundreds of new people and cultures each day, as well as requires them to travel regularly. This makes for an environment will illness and accident can thrive (let’s not forget the beer culture of post-secondary either!) Getting your budding genius health insurance while they’re away at school is an easy way to give you, and your child, peace of mind – especially if they are off in the big city).
