Remembering the Stonehookers of Port Credit Historic Walking Tour

Join us on October 22, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at the iconic Port Credit Lighthouse as we embark on a journey back in time to when the historic Stonehookers worked the shores of Port Credit.

Remembering the Stonehookers of Port Credit Historic Walking Tour

Every town has its own unique story to tell. For Port Credit, that story is about the Stonehookers. These were the men (and even one woman) who set out from the village’s harbour, one hundred years ago, in search of a prized commodity. Their stories are not about shipwrecks and adventure, but of the teamwork and perseverance needed to make a living from the lake, and the dedication to make their hometown thrive.

The tour is 90 minutes so please dress for the weather.

There is no fee to take the journey, we just ask that you tip your tour guide, Historian Richard Collins.

Port Credit BIA is pleased to work in partnership with Heritage Mississauga to continue to bring these magical history tours to Port Credit.

Historic Walking Tour: Treaties Recognition

12 November 2022

The Credit River is the scenic backbone of Mississauga and is the recreational heart of Port Credit. For Mississauga’s Indigenous people, the Credit River was a part of their daily lives. In 1805, these lands were ceded to the Government. Join us as we journey back in time to understand these treaties and the importance of recognizing their significance.
