The Great Brampton Flood – 70th Anniversary Exhibition

​In March 1948, Brampton endured a devastating flood when the Etobicoke Creek overflowed its banks and submerged the downtown in more than two metres of water.

Join us for an exhibition marking the 70th anniversary of Brampton’s great flood. Through archival photos, videos and documents, learn more about how it changed the course of downtown development – and what is being done now to help bring people back to the river.

If you have photos of the flood that you would be willing to make part of the collective history, please bring them with you to the event and we will scan them. We will also have a video camera set up and would love to hear your stories.
