Public feedback sought in Regional Government Review


BRAMPTON, ON (April 17, 2019) – The structure of the Region of Peel municipalities is under provincial review. To gain a pulse check of public sentiment on this topic, Brampton would like to hear from its residents and businesses on what they believe is the best way forward for the City.

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. 

Brampton is one of three municipalities in the Region of Peel. The options that are being discussed at the Regional level are whether to become a standalone City (i.e. dissolving the Region), merging three municipalities into a bigger City, or to leave the current structure unchanged.

There are several ways for Bramptonians to provide feedback. All input received will help Brampton City Council Members make informed decisions at Regional Council and at other touch points during the provincial consultations.

Have your Say
• A Telephone Town Hall will be held on April 24 at 7 pm where random numbers will be called. Those who wish to be added to the caller list can sign up online by 12 pm on April 24. 
• Attend a Town Hall meeting on May 4 at 3 pm at City Hall. Those who wish to provide their comments or ask questions at this meeting are required to register by emailing cityclerksoffice@brampton.ca by 4:30 pm on May 3.
• The Town Hall meeting will also be live streamed on Facebook and questions may be submitted during that time.
• Complete the online survey by the Province of Ontario by May 21.

Quote
“Several options are being considered during the Regional Government Review, and we want this to be fair to taxpayers. I encourage Bramptonians to be engaged in this very important review that could bring about a change in how the city is run. Today, Brampton is the second fastest-growing city in Canada, and nearly 80 per cent of people that move to the Region of Peel choose Brampton as their home. It is important that we have a strong voice at the table on decisions that affect Brampton residents.”
- Mayor Patrick Brown
