The Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing announced next steps on the Regional Government Review
The City of Brampton welcomed an announcement by the Province of Ontario and Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Steve Clark to maintain the current structure of Region of Peel. The City believes the existing model ensures Brampton residents continue to receive core Regional services in the most cost effective and efficient way possible.
Earlier this year, the Ontario government began its expected review of eight regional municipalities (Halton, York, Durham, Waterloo, Niagara, Peel, Muskoka District, and Oxford County), the County of Simcoe, and all lower-tier municipalities.
The overall objective of the review was to ensure the affected municipalities are:
- Working well and supporting the future economic prosperity of residents and businesses; and
- Working harder, smarter and more efficiently.
