History

The riding of Mississauga–Lakeshore is largely the same as the old Mississauga South riding. It was renamed after the 2014 Ontario election as a part of a provincial riding redistribution process that saw new ridings created and several existing riding boundaries changed. The southeastern part of the old Mississauga—Erindale riding was moved into this new riding. Charles Sousa, who most recently served as the Minister of Finance, represented Mississauga South for the Ontario Liberal Party since 2007.
