Message from Brampton City Council
Dear Residents:
Working together, we have been able to move into Stage 3 of reopening the city. We have to continue being vigilant and non-medical masks are mandatory  in all indoor public spaces, in order to ensure that our residents remain safe and healthy. To support this decision, we will be distributing one million masks to our residents and businesses. Collectively, we can beat this pandemic.
Another important step towards maintaining safety is our decision to implement  Automated Speed Enforcement to reduce speeding and traffic-related incidents, and enhance road safety for all users in Brampton. There is zero tolerance for speeding in our city.
We encourage all residents to participate in our numerous city-building initiatives. This is your city, your home and we want to hear from you.
We continue our advocacy for a fair share for Brampton and our priority projects. COVID-19 impacted us all and Brampton is the hardest hit in Peel Region. Prior to the pandemic, the City had a solid financial position and record contribution to reserves, which has helped us weather some of the immediate impacts of this pandemic. However, there is some good news. We were able to secure more than $83 million investment for Brampton Transit from the Federal and Provincial Governments through the Public Transit Infrastructure Stream. This will help increase the capacity and quality of our rapidly-growing transit system, providing a safer and healthier transportation solution for all.
Thank you for your resilience and support.
Stay strong. Stay connected. Stay safe.
Mayor Patrick Brown & Brampton City Council
Message from City of Brampton CAO
Dear Residents:
To support our moving into Stage 3 of reopening our city , we have a new reality to face. Non-medicals masks are now mandatory in all indoor public spaces. Please wear your masks to protect yourself and others around you. As we slowly and steadily start opening City facilities, I want to assure you that we are putting in all appropriate protocols to keep you safe and healthy. Some of the facilities that are currently open include the POA courthouse and City Hall for marriage licences . Additionally, a number of recreation opportunities are also open including the spray pads, arenas, summer camps, playgrounds, play structures and outdoor fitness equipment.
It is summer and understandably we all want to enjoy it, but let’s ensure we’re doing so safely. It’s important that we continue practising all safety measures as outlined by Peel Health .

  • Keep your distance.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Wear a non-medical mask where it’s difficult to maintain physical distance and where masks are mandatory.
  • Get tested if you think you have COVID-19.
Team Brampton continues to work diligently to ensure that we can provide the much-needed services to our residents in a safe manner. We have made daily active screening mandatory for all staff and will be opening more facilities slowly, but steadily. A number of our services and programs are available online. Please make sure to check the City website for all the latest updates.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are all in this together.
