Mississauga is the sixth largest city in Canada. Situated in Southern Ontario, it lies on the shores of Lake Ontario, located in the Regional Municipality of Peel,
in the central part of the Greater Toronto Area, to the west of Toronto.
During the 2013–2014 season, Mississauga became home to the Mississauga Power of the National Basketball League of Canada, Canada's only professional basketball league,
when the Oshawa Power relocated to the city. The team was renamed the Mississauga Power. Home games were played at the Hershey Centre. The team folded in 2015 after the
NBA Development League team Raptors 905 was announced and created. They will play at the Hershey Centre starting in the 2015–16 NBA Development League season.
