Brampton at a Glance
Brampton is a culturally diverse city located in the Greater Toronto Area, and the third-most populous city in the Greater Golden Horseshoe, behind Toronto and Mississauga. The city has been ripe with new development since the 1980s, and continues to be a hot spot for home-building and buying, as many find themselves priced out of Toronto’s housing market. The area continues to attract employers and residents, thanks to its proximity to downtown Toronto, Pearson Airport and the lower cost of land here.
