The Brampton Tourism Strategy, the City’s first Council approved strategy, is a five-year plan to guide the development of Brampton as an emerging destination and cultural hotspot. The strategy addresses Brampton’s short and long-term growth, focusing on economic recovery as well as local and regional initiatives that align with the Economic Recovery Strategy and the Culture Master Plan.
Five Year Vision
Brampton is a developing tourism destination that celebrates its distinct multiculturalism
and radiates pride of place through its engaged and dynamic resident-base. Visitors to
Brampton are delighted by the range of arts and cultural activities, special events, food-based experiences and sport tourism events available to enjoy.
Tourism in Brampton is developed and managed through a collaborative stakeholder
driven process that ensures the City’s true authentic self and shared values are wellrepresented to the world, and that tourism in Brampton helps to improve the wellness of
residents, businesses, visitors and the environment.
Tourism Development Streams
