About The City Of Brampton, Ontario
NEWS AND INFORMATION
About The South Asian Community
A city of some 550,000 people in 2014, Brampton is one of the fastest growing communities in the country. Brampton is a city with a proud past and great potential for the future. It is a planned community that has all the amenities as well as abundant parkland and open space.
Situated close to three major highways- 401, 407 & 410, commuting to the GTA and other surrounding cities is made easy.
The growth experienced in recent years and the forecasted population increase for the future mean that a very careful phasing policy must ensure that roads, schools and health care facilities are available to meet the needs of both present and future residents.
Our Mission is to be a vibrant and attractive city of opportunity where well-planned and organized services and facilities make it possible for families, individuals and the business community to grow, prosper and enjoy a high quality of life.
Quality of life:
"Quality Of Life" is a combination of elements which make us feel good about ourselves and about the community in which we live and work. Brampton has an abundance of shopping opportunities, leisure and recreation facilities, libraries, tourist attractions, golf courses, restaurants, theatres and many other amenities to offer.
Brampton (as part of the Region of Peel) is also proud to be recognized as a very safe place to live. Resulting from the dedication of the Peel Regional Police, Brampton holds an extremely low crime rate with international accreditation.
Our residents have all of the services they could possibly require, including top notch hospital and other medical facilities.
