Innovation District

Welcome to Brampton’s Innovation District.

Brampton is building an innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem – and it’s all happening in the heart of Downtown Brampton.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Space for Entrepreneurship and Innovation

A number of entrepreneurial and innovation spaces are transforming within the downtown area, beginning with the new Brampton Entrepreneur Centre space last year. In 2019, the City opened a spacious 4,500 sq. ft. storefront co-working space designed to fuel creativity and productivity, completely free to Brampton entrepreneurs and innovators. Located at 41 George St. S, the space hosts frequent seminars and sessions with business advisors.

New specialized business incubation and accelerator spaces opening this year in downtown Brampton include:

Education and Training Talent

Over the last two years, education and training opportunities within the downtown core have been increasing rapidly. From Ryerson University – Chang School of Continuing Education and Rogers Cybersecure Catalyst to Sheridan College and Algoma University, the Innovation District is a hub for learning at all levels.

  • Rogers Cybersecure Catalyst’s Accelerated Cybersecurity Training Program
  • The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education, Ryerson University
  • Sheridan Continuing and Professional Studies at Brampton Library’s Four Corners Branch
  • Algoma University – Downtown Brampton Campus

Building Capacity and Infrastructure

Last year, Brampton City Council unanimously approved moving forward on three major projects that will spur downtown revitalization and enhance new developments in the city’s core: The Centre for Innovation, Downtown Brampton Transit Terminal, and the EA for the Hurontario Main LRT to the Downtown Brampton GO. These initiatives will focus on the City’s eff​​orts to create complete communities, unlock economic potential and reinforce Brampton’s unique position within the Innovation Corridor (between Toronto-Waterloo Region). Creating a gateway building like the Centre for Innovation will be transformational for downtown Brampton and will be a key part of the Innovation District, a hub for the city’s talent to thrive.
