Mississauga has proudly called Kariya, Japan its sister city since 1981.
The sister city initiative began in the 1950s as a way to promote communication between cities around the world. The original goal was to reduce conflict between nations in the aftermath of World War II.
Having a sister city provides unique cultural and educational exchange opportunities for students, businesses and City staff. This partnership also enhances our City’s global reputation and trade. Over 100 Japanese companies now contribute to our local economy in Mississauga, more than any other city in Canada.
In July 1992, the City opened Kariya Park to honour our sister city partnership. The park features Japanese-style gardens, pavilion, cherry trees, rhododendrons, and several sculptures gifted to us by Kariya City.
In 2001, Kariya City opened Mississauga Park. The park features a miniature replica of Mississauga’s City Hall, a maple leaf structure, and a sculpture of a bear by Canadian artist John McEwen.
