The city of Mississauga has a lot to celebrate this year as it’s been recognized as the second Most Loved Travel Destination in Canada, and among the Top 100 Most Loved Travel Destinations in the world, according to the Tourism Sentiment Index (TSI).
In a press release announcement, Mississauga credits its win to “hundreds of restaurants serving up a diverse variety of cuisines” and “the resiliency of [its] local restauranteurs and a tremendous outpouring of community support.”
The TSI’s ranking is based on sentiment analysis on millions of conversations and content posted publicly online. In Mississauga’s case, the analysis showed that the city is loved for its plethora and quality of its dining and takeout options.
“We’re proud that the positive feedback being shared online is helping to shine a spotlight on the amazing amenities Mississauga has to offer,” said Tourism Mississauga CEO Victoria Clarke. “Mississauga’s ranking in this index reinforces the love that both locals and visitors from across Canada have for our city. We’re extremely grateful to our community for continuing to support our restaurants and our tourism sector overall over the past two years. It’s that support that makes it possible for local businesses to continue to offer a world-class experience.”
The Tourism Sentiment Index for Canada ranked Mississauga second out of 50 Canadian cities and 42nd out of 100 cities globally. In its analysis, Mississauga was also lauded for its convenience when it comes to travel.
“Convenience is a big part of Mississauga’s popularity, both for fun getaways and business travel. Mississauga is known for its urban centre, offering a wealth of shopping, culinary, sports and entertainment options, but there’s also so much more to discover,” added Clarke. “What some people may not realize is that we have over 500 parks, and we also have a growing arts scene that’s steeped in our diverse Canadian culture.”
