Urban conveniences in Mississauga
In harmony with our multicultural community, our tranquil location in Mississauga is the perfect place for you to retire. Just a few minutes away you’ll find Square One Shopping Centre, known as Ontario's largest shopping mall with over 330 stores and restaurants. We’re also conveniently located near Highway 401 and 403, putting us in proximity to the Living Arts Centre (a cultural hub for theatre, art exhibits and festivals), Mississauga Civic Centre, Pearson International Airport, Trillium Health Centre, and Credit Valley Hospital. You’ll find Mississauga offers everything you could ever want in a retirement home and community!
Great on-site amenities and gorgeous outdoor space
The living experience of our residents is elevated thanks to our well-manicured walking paths around the building and an outdoor courtyard that serves as a gathering place. We also have a greenhouse for residents who enjoy gardening!
When you aren't taking in beautiful vistas or getting some exercise in the great outdoors, you can enjoy our easily accessible and spacious indoor amenities: a full-service dining room, tuck shop, spa, fitness centre, and more. Here, you'll often find our residents meeting with the gardening club, discussing current events in our bistro, listening to a guest speaker in our library, going on outings with friends, or even participating in a volunteer project for our local community. Whatever your interests, you choose how each day is based on how you want to live in your retirement years.
The dining experience
The dining experience at Chartwell Robert Speck is centred on quality, taste, nutrition, and good company. Our residents have rich culinary traditions of their own, and arrive with high expectations of their dining experience here, which we welcome. Two delicious and diversified daily meals are part of your independent living lifestyle (with the option to choose up to three), helping you to enjoy your retirement focusing on the things you want to do.
Both our featured and à la carte menus are bursting with fresh, wholesome ingredients. Our menus are inspired by the seasons, and you’ll never be offered the same featured lunch or dinner in a four-week period. You’ll enjoy your meal even more surrounded by friends in our light-filled dining room with its floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking our gardens.
Activities and amenities
You can tell there’s something special about Chartwell Robert Speck the minute you step onto our beautiful grounds. With a central courtyard surrounded by walking paths, gardens, and greenspace, our outdoor activities truly shine. You’ll see residents and staff relaxing on our patio at Happy Hour, working in the gardens, or strolling together on our walking paths, which connect to the Burnhamthorpe Trail.
You’ll find that same sense of community inside our retirement residence in our spacious and open common areas, where you’ll see residents and staff chatting and perhaps discussing the social calendar and activities for the day. They might be looking forward to hearing from a guest speaker in our curated series or becoming more limber in a Tai Chi class. There are travelogue afternoons, Bridge and Euchre clubs, as well as therapeutic painting classes and baking, bocce ball, and movie nights. Our residents love to volunteer, and you’ll find them out on scheduled trips to nearby Square One, while others are ready for a coffee meet-up with friends in our bistro. Like you, their goal is to pursue an active, fulfilling retirement on their own terms.

Things to do in Mississauga
Reflecting its vibrant multicultural population, Mississauga offers a round-the-world itinerary of things to do and see without ever leaving its borders. If you love a good festival, then begin your arts, music, and food journey in the winter with Winter Magic, at the Museum of Mississauga. Next, mark your April calendar for a visit to the annual Arts on the Credit event. In May, you’ll find the world in your backyard with Carassauga, Canada’s largest multicultural festival, held in different locations throughout the city. Then there’s the Dragon Boat Festival, Halal Food Fest, North America’s largest Ukrainian festival in September, as well as Bollywood Monster Mashup, also the largest festival in Canada celebrating South Asian culture—and that’s just to name a few events that keep the city celebrating year-round.
The Living Arts Centre offers another calendar of performers with three theatres, seven craft studios, and a restaurant for pre-show dining. On a smaller scale, the Meadowvale Theatre is a showcase for regional arts group productions. The city also has its own art gallery, housed in the Mississauga Civic Centre, across from Square One Shopping Centre. If the 300-plus stores in Square One don’t satisfy your retail itch, for a completely different experience, head to Port Credit, where you can explore a myriad of charming independent boutiques and restaurants on the shores of Lake Ontario. You can also stroll the waterfront trail there, visit the marina, or have a picnic at Jack Darling Memorial Park.
