You’re invited: help shape Brampton’s Affordable Housing Strategy


BRAMPTON, ON (October 15, 2019) – The City of Brampton is proud to begin developing its first Affordable Housing Strategy, in response to the varying housing needs of our residents.

Safe and adequate housing is essential to physical, economic and social well-being. However, affordable housing continues to be a challenge for residents in Brampton and cities across the Greater Toronto Area.

About Housing Brampton
While the Region of Peel is the local housing authority that provides affordable rental units, the City is responsible for land use planning. Housing Brampton will focus on increasing the number of affordable rental and ownership units that are created.

The City will work with residents, housing providers, community stakeholders, and all levels of government to develop a “made in Brampton” strategy that responds to the current and future housing needs of Brampton residents.
