What Is It Like to Live In Brampton Ontario? If you are thinking of moving your family, is Brampton the right community for you? As someone who personally lives in the city, I think you are going to adore it. Brampton joins small town charm with convenient proximity to Toronto. It is a southern Ontario Suburban city in the GTA with a population of 593, 638 as of 2016. The city was once known as "The Flower Town of Canada" based on its large greenhouse industry. Today Brampton's major economic sectors include advanced manufacturing, retail administration and logistics, information and communication technologies, food and beverage, life sciences and business services. It is the third largest city in the GTA, and 9th largest city in Canada based on population. It has more green space per square km than any other city in Canada! It is the only city in Ontario that has won the International Safe City award!
Location? The City of Brampton is bordered by Highway 50 (Vaughan) to the East, Winston Churchill Boulevard (Halton Hills) to the West, Mayfield Road (Caledon) to the north (except for a small neighbourhood, Snelgrove, which is part of Brampton despite extending somewhat north of Mayfield Road) and the hydro corridor (Mississauga) to the south except at Finch Avenue (at this point, Finch Avenue serves as the border between the two cities).
Who Lives Here? With the median age at 33.7, it is the youngest community in the GTA! Due to a number of converging factors in Toronto, including an exponential rise in the cost of real estate, and high property and corporate taxes, it is an increasingly expensive place to live. Brampton has attracted residents and businesses due to its proximity to the Pearson International Airportand road infrastructure, population growth, cost of land, and more favourable corporate tax structure. It is becoming a prime location for corporate head offices, factories, warehouses, etc., as well as the typical domestic goods and services required to provide for the population. Brampton has 2 fantastic All Ages Tennis Clubs with plenty of parking, one is Brampton Tennis Club Downtown with Clay Courts (nice on the feet so you can extend your game!) and Chinguacousy Tennis Club (asphalt/deco2) for Winter and All-Year Tennis!
