Erin MIlls South:Central

Erin Mills is broken up into many little communities and to avoid confusion I'm just keeping it to Central and South Erin Mills. They then can broken into the smaller phases. Generally the boundaries here are pretty easy as it's pretty much a square. A rough boundary is to head South from Britannia Road along Winston Churchill Boulevard until you pass Highway 403 then the pocket of homes east to the 403 and south to Dundas. Then west down Dundas Street until Mississauga Road and north up to about Thomas Street, head east until Erin Mills Parkway and then North back up to Britannia Road to complete the boundary.


I myself currently reside in South Erin Mills with my wife and daughter and I like it here a lot. There is lots of access to the highways and the amenities are everywhere. Depending on where you decide to reside you pretty much have to drive everywhere for most things making this very similar to Churchill Meadows. I myself don't mind as you're so close to Square One, Erin Mills Town Centre, and Dundas Street with all the big box stores along it.

If you are looking for Condos, a lot of them are located on Erin Centre Boulevard/Erin Mills Parkway and Burnhamthorpe Road/Erin Mills Parkway. Don't get me wrong there are others scattered about and some new low-rise condos being built on the cusp of Churchill Meadows and Erin Mills as well as some just off Erin Mills Parkway and Dundas Street.

The South Erin Mills area has lots of Semi-detached and detached homes which are connected by many nice and well maintained pathways and little parks with playgrounds which gives it a nice family friendly feel. I'm on them everyday walking my dog finding new routes and paths to new subdivisions to check out the homes in the area.

There are many nice pockets in this area and the majority of the homes here have decent size lots but the majority of homes need a little urban modernization to keep up with todays standards. Many of these homes still contain parkay floors, track lighting with a 70's style to them and they will definitely be lacking some of the things that are more common in newer builds such as your ensuite bathrooms and open concept main levels. Again they are all refected in the pricetag here. You can grab a decent size semi-detached for around $425,000 + and detached around $600,000 + but expect to sink some money into them to fix them up. I actually find the homes here are great inside but many homeowners forget about the importance of curb appeal and their homes outsides are dated. I know I live here!!!

*Rankings Come From the Fraser Institute 2014-15 *
(Please note:  schools that do not have a rating on the Fraser Institute need a miniumum number of students (15) from the grades from which the data is drawn from and in some cases the available data is insufficient to properly rank the school getting them a rank of this N/A. Again rank isn't everything as there are many factors to consider and the score should be used in conjuction with having meetings with teachers, administrators, support staff, as well as your child and other parents to better the overall selection factor)


The Erin Mills districts are great for affordability with the many styles of homes scattered throughout and with prices that vary. Mind you the cheaper homes are generally row/townhomes and are in need of a little TLC but as an investment or say a project for you to either embark on yourself or pay to have it upgraded can be very lucrative financially as the area is incredible for the amenities closeby and access to all major highways within ten minutes.

Condo Apt - $200,000 - $450,000
Townhomes - $285,000 - $450,000+ / Luxury Townhomes $720,000+
Semi-Detached - $460,000 - $600,000
Detached - $570,000 - $900,000+
Luxury Homes - $1,100,000 +


There are a lot of restaurants in Erin Mills but you'll find many of them being your typical chain restaurant and I myself, being a former restauranteur, enjoy the independant entrepreneur trying to make their culinary footprint in their district as the place to eat. These are a few places I'd recommend on my experiences there, all of which were very good. *according to  Yelp Yelp Review as of 01/01/15

Erin Mills is a great area of Mississauga for all its amenities and its close proximity to all the major highways to name a few. It does have all styles of homes in this district and the affordability for the area is there too. Again as I mentioned before that there are lots of homes that run in the middle of the pack here, but with a little TLC you can turn your investment into a dreamhome with some modernization. Then you can just sit back and watch your property value increase year by year. Most of the homes here, especially in Pheasant Run, South Common and Council Ring are around the 35-40 year range but all have their own style and attributes. The homes in Sawmill Valley and the Bridalpath seem to have a little more of a prominant feel to them over the others but they all need a little bit of modernization.

I love that this area is totally surrounded by other districts of Mississauga and there is not real a lot of change happening with new builds and more focus will be put into urban infill. All these areas have mature trees and established neigbourhoods with great pathways linking most areas and schools. The schools here are decent as well and there are many nice parks as well for the nature lover to go out and enjoy. This is also a very clean area and for the most part very quiet I find, asides from the odd pocket you may come across.

This is an extremely family friendly neighbourhood and I would like to think it's aimed more toward the working middle class, double income families. There are lots of baseball diamonds, parks and community centres for things for you and the family to do. If you are looking for the Suburbs, then this area is definitely it. Lastly for investment opportunities, this would be the area that I would probably purchase in. My wife and I have already bought here and have toyed with the idea of buying another property fix it up and rent it out and I would probably stay in this area. It's mostly affordable, established and there is lots surrounding it. If family comes first then you might want to shop around Erin Mills as it has lots to offer.
