​​​​​Brampton is home to 4,545 self-identified residents of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit ancestry based on the 2021 census. Not all Indigenous individuals and families identify themselves during census data collection, so it is important to note that this number may not represent all Indigenous members of the Brampton community. Each nation has unique histories, cultures, customs, and languages connected with the land, water, and other nations. The City of Brampton is committed to working towards answering the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action and adopting the framework of the United Nations Declarations on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples to develop and strengthen its relationships with local communities and the nations whose traditional territory the City is located on.​

Land Acknowledgement

The City of Brampton is located on the traditional territories of the Mississaugas of the Credit, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat Nations who have called this land home since time immemorial. We acknowledge the agreements made in Treaty 19 — the Ajetance Purchase of 1818 — and are committed to our ongoing role in reconciliation through meaningful action rooted in truth, justice, and respect. We are grateful to the original caretakers of this land who have ensured we are able to work, play, and live in Brampton now and in the future.
