Erindale is a neighbourhood of Mississauga to the west of Toronto and north of Oakville.  Its western boundary is the Credit River, and it runs diagonally south between the 403 to the QEW expressway, eastwards to Mavis Road.

Original European settlers bought the land of Erindale from the Mississauga Indians and developed mills along the Credit River.  A major military road was named Dundas Street after the British Secretary-at-War, and the village grew up around it.  The village went through various name changes, until finally becoming Erindale in the early 1900’s, a reflection of the large number of Irish immigrants to the area.

Development of Erindale as a suburb of Toronto really began in the late 1950’s when Erindale Woods was built north of Dundas Street.  Starting in the 1960’s the large Erin Mills neighbourhood was developed.  Other neighbourhoods within Erindale include Huron ParkSouth MillwaySherwood Forest and Sawmill Valley.  In 1967, the University of Toronto built the 225-acre Mississauga campus, its second largest, on the banks of the Credit River in Erindale.

Residential styles in Erindale are typical of mid-century development, with many ranchsplit levelbungalow and two storey homes, both detached and semi-detached.  Prices remain quite affordable, and it is an established family neighbourhood.  However, there are large custom-built luxury homes along the Credit River, taking advantage of the views.  There is also a mix of low and high rise condominiums in the area.

There are several schools in the area, both public and Catholic, as well as Montessori schools, Holy Name of Mary College School, Bronte College and Meadow Green Academy private schools, and Woodlands, a combined elementary and secondary school of the Peel-Dufferin School Board that features ESL, Peer-Assisted Learning and programs for gifted children.

Erindale Park, off Dundas Street, is the largest in Mississauga at 225 hectares.  Besides picnics, barbeques, bird-watching and a playground area, the David Culham Trail provides spectacular views of the Credit River for hikers, joggers, cyclists, and cross-country skiers.  Golfers are a few minutes from both the Credit Valley Golf and Country Club and the Mississauga Golf and Country Club.

The Erin Mills Town Centre, located just north of the 403, has a large selection of popular shops and services.
Commuters have easy access to the Hwy 403, which leads to the 401, as well as the QEW to the south.  The Erindale station of the GO Train service is on Rathburn Road.
