Event information

Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This year, Doors Open Mississauga turns the spotlight onto the Malton community. The intersection of Derry Road and Airport Road, known as “Four Corners,” was once the centre of a thriving village consisting of a general store, a cobbler shop, a small hotel and a blacksmith. The area grew rapidly with the Grand Trunk Railroad, turning it into a major grain handling and export centre. In 1937, Malton was chosen as the site for the new international airport. This decision set the stage for a new era of technological breakthroughs in aviation, including the development of the CF-105 – a supersonic, all-weather jet interceptor, also known as the AVRO Arrow.

Malton is now a bustling community of close to 40,000 people, with a good mix of residences and commercial businesses. You are invited to explore many of the buildings and facilities that tell the story of this unique and fascinating pocket of the city.

Community information

Malton in Mississauga was first settled in approximately 1820 and was founded by Richard Halliday from Malton in Yorkshire, England.

The intersection of Derry Road and Airport Road was the village centre known as Four Corners. In the 1840s, land was cleared northwest of the Four Corners and became the village of Malton.

Today, Malton is a vibrant multicultural community with heritage sites, natural green space, places of worship, manufacturing and unique businesses. Explore this hidden gem in Mississauga.
