A Message From the Mayor of Brampton

Wherever you look in Brampton, you find growth, development and innovation.

Brampton is thinking bigger. Its demographics and location at the centre of Canada’s innovation super corridor is encouraging investment and technology sector partnerships. Brampton is building vibrant urban centres that ignite opportunity and instill pride.

A transformation in transit is enhancing intra and inter-city connections, with a focus on two-way, all-day electric GO service and mobility hubs where different modes of transportation come together seamlessly, integrating with pedestrian-friendly features.

A university and centre for education, innovation and collaboration is coming to the Downtown – with Council recently approving an unprecedented $150 million municipal investment for this project spurring jobs, creativity, investment and business partnerships. Council STEM-focused learning, and partnerships with two of Canada’s leading postsecondary institutions, Ryerson University and Sheridan College, will produce new waves of skilled workers for the industries of tomorrow.

More than $600 million has been invested in the recently opened Peel Memorial Centre for
Integrated Health and Wellness. With a focus on preventive care, it is the foundation for the development of a growing health cluster. Other new health facilities – like ErinoakKids – add more opportunities and dimensions to health care and cluster development in Brampton.

Across key sectors, in culture and vibrancy, Brampton is being transformed.

The fuel for this transformation is our people. Statistics Canada’s 2016 Census confirms what we’ve been saying for years. There is no other city in Canada that matches Brampton’s pace of growth, youth and diversity.

We’re investing in our people, and in our youth, supporting workforce development and talent to bring more jobs and investment.

Linda Jeffrey, Mayor of Brampton
