Historic churches that have been demolished in Mississauga

Published August 28, 2022 at 3:32 am


In historic Mississauga, as in other places, churches and places of religious assembly were fixtures on the social and geographical landscape and were landmarks in their respective communities.

The buildings themselves played significant roles in the lives of our residents, both as houses of worship, places of weddings, funerals and baptism, and of communal and social gatherings.

While many historic churches continue to thrive in our modern city, and many of our older congregations continue to thrive in new homes, Heritage Mississauga pays tribute to several historic religious edifices that once graced our community.
