The Mississauga Aeros were a women's semi-professional ice hockey team. Its original name was the North York Aeros, and then in 1999, the franchise was named the Beatrice Aeros because it was sponsored by the Beatrice Dairy Foods company. In 2003, it was renamed the Toronto Aeros. The Aeros played in the National Women's Hockey League and played their home games at the Beatrice Ice Gardens at York University in Toronto, Ontario. The franchise relocated and became the Mississauga Aeros.
