Have your say in Province’s Regional Government Review


BRAMPTON, ON (April 5, 2019) – The City of Brampton is encouraging residents to have their say and provide feedback on the Regional Government Review happening this spring.

Earlier this year, the Province of Ontario began reviewing regional governments to ensure municipal and regional governments are working as effectively and efficiently as possible, and can continue to provide the vital services that communities depend on.

The outcome of this review could impact the governance structure of the Region of Peel, which is made up of the Cities of Brampton, Mississauga, and the Town of Caledon.

Have your say
There are several ways for municipalities and residents to provide input before the provincially-run public consultations end on May 21:

1. Meet the special advisors in person
Individuals and organizations can submit a request to speak in person to the special advisors of the review. This is an opportunity for the advisors to hear directly from you - the people who live, work and spend time in the municipalities covered by the review.

Spaces are limited, and submissions to speak are only open from April 3 to April 9. The Brampton opportunity is scheduled for May 8, 2019 at the Region of Peel (10 Peel Centre Drive, Brampton).

2. Send a written submission
The Province is also accepting written submissions – either by email or letter.

3. Fill out an online survey
You can also complete the Province’s survey online.
