Housing Brampton


Housing Brampton was developed following comprehensive consultation, and was approved and endorsed by City Council on May 19th, 2021. The Strategy and Action Plan consists of 4 Big Moves and 16 Action Items which respond to the current and future housing needs of Brampton residents. Between 2021 and 2025, Housing Brampton will be implemented through numerous policy and process changes as well as through integration with other City plans.

​Housing Brampton is Brampton’s comprehensive Housing Strategy and Action Plan that will help us to improve housing affordability, add more diverse types of housing to our housing stock and use innovative approaches to address our housing needs.

Housing Brampton's overarching Principles to guide housing development in Brampton include reducing barriers to supply of housing, making full use of regulatory tools, incorporating equity, collaborating with the non-profit sector, advocating for the right housing, and demonstrating innovation. These Principles guide the 4 focus areas or 'Big Moves' of the Strategy and Action Plan, which include Purpose-Built Rental Housing, Use of Public Land, Attainable Home Ownership, and Clear Housing Targets.
