Councillor describes remains as a former Indigenous settlement

An archeological dig in south Mississauga has unearthed remnants of the city’s past.

An Indigenous settlement dating back 2,400 years has been uncovered at a former residential property on the corner of Stavebank Road and Premium Way, according to Ward 7 Coun. Nando Iannicca.

“It predates the Roman Empire. That’s extraordinary,” he said at the Nov. 8 council meeting.
