Improving livability and prosperity by focusing on local education and employment opportunities, neighbourhood services and programs, and job investment strategies.

 

River Walk/Etobicoke Creek Flood Control Project**

Intergovernmental Priority

Design and construction of flood mitigation works to eliminate flooding in Downtown Brampton from Etobicoke Creek during extreme storm events. Project consists of widening and deepening existing Etobicoke Creek, replacing existing bridges with larger structures to allow passage of floodwaters, and providing increased valley storage for floodwaters by relocating an existing roadway (Ken Whillans Drive).

 

Brampton University*

Intergovernmental Priority

Brampton is one of Canada's fastest-growing and youngest cities and home to world-renowned businesses, looking for skilled workers to fill jobs today, and anticipating needs for the jobs of tomorrow. With a priority to bring a full university to Brampton, the City will work closely with the Province, and local and international partners, to lay out the social and economic benefits of this investment and ensure we can develop and retain homegrown talent.
