Downtown Brampton lies within the Etobicoke Creek floodplain. Provincial policies around hazard management restrict the type and amount of development that can occur there today.
Riverwalk will be a transformative opportunity to help revitalize Brampton’s downtown and make it healthy, sustainable and resilient.
It starts with engineering an innovative long-term solution to the flood risk, which will unlock the potential for urban growth and development. In turn, it will put the creek back at the heart of downtown, creating a vibrant new space that provides a distinct identity for the city.
What's the project status?
The Environmental Assessment Study (EA), led by the Toronto Region Conservation Area (TRCA), for the Downtown Brampton Flood Protection Project has begun. The EA follows a formal process of reviewing the alternative solutions through an environmental, social and economic lense, to determine the most suitable solution.
