People are at the heart of everything we do.


Our diverse communities energize us. ​We believe in the power of connection. We partner for progress. We’re building an inclusive city that is safe, sustainable and successful. Together, we’re on a journey to move Brampton forward.

The 2018-2022 Term of Council Priorities (ToCP) inform our activities, decisions and budgets. ​The priorities have corresponding initiatives, designed to make living, working and playing in Brampton pretty awesome... now, and in the future.

As Council reached its mid-point, it was important t​​o re-assess the ToCP initiatives to ensure the City continues to invest in projects and initiatives that move Brampton forward while honouring our commitments to residents. In November 2020, the priorities were refreshe​d​, with 16 Council-approved initiatives for staff focus that will continue ou​​​​r long-term City and community-building efforts.

Strategic directions: Opportunities, Mosaic, Green, Healthy & Safe, and Well-Run.​​
