Here’s a Look at All the Movies and TV Shows That Were Recently Shot in Mississauga

 

When we say that Mississauga is an important part of Hollywood North, we're not giving ourselves too much credit—the city has attracted a wealth of star-studded productions over the years.

In the past year alone, we've seen Mississauga appear in several popular Netflix shows—think Black Mirror and The Umbrella Academy—and we've even been lucky enough to spot some very iconic Handmaids near city hall.

While Mississauga is rumoured to be the second most popular film site in Ontario (or perhaps even Canada), the city says that's impossible to confirm with hard numbers.

"We cannot confirm our position in the popularity of location filming in Ontario as not all jurisdictions report the statistics in the same manner," Liza Toliao, coordinator, film and television, with the City of Mississauga, told insauga.com in an email. 

"Having said that we did have a banner year last year and all indications are that we are heading in the same direction this year."

While the city can't tell us what A-list productions might be heading here for confidentiality reasons, it can tell us which movies and TV shows have shot some scenes in the city.
