As Brampton moves onto the global stage, there are exciting developments setting the stage for innovation and growth.

A university is the single greatest incubator and catalyst for more jobs, development and investment in our city. On October 26, 2016, Finance Minister Charles Sousa announced a Provincial commitment to build a university in Brampton. Brampton will be home to a unique centre for education, innovation and collaboration – to build industry partnerships, promote research and commercialization, and deliver the skills needed to be successful today and in the future.

A significant health and life sciences cluster is starting to take shape around the new Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness. Businesses in this sector are already investing in this growth opportunity.

Brampton also has the advantage of being located right in the centre of the Waterloo – Toronto Innovation Super Corridor.

That’s one of the reasons companies like Canon choose to set up operations here. Our location and infrastructure advantages, along with our youth and diversity, make a compelling story as we partner in Toronto Global’s pitch to international business communities. New developments and expansion only give more reason for businesses to invest in our city, and for our future leaders and innovators to establish their roots here.

Brampton’s growth, youth and diversity provide a pipeline of talent to fill the jobs of tomorrow, and our location and access to amenities and infrastructure make Brampton a clear winner.
