Message from Brampton City Council
Dear Residents:

Although we have had some challenging times in our City due to COVID-19, we came together to contain the spread of the virus in our community. We know this wasn’t always easy, and we thank you for your efforts.

As the summer winds down and we head into fall, we need to remain diligent. Continue to wear a mask/face covering, follow health and hygiene precautions and physical distancing to mitigate the impacts of a second wave.

We have an Economic Recovery Strategy which will help our City move forward out of COVID-19, but we can all play a part in supporting our City’s economy. Support Local whenever you can, to help our businesses and our economy recover.

Our partnerships with our provincial and federal governments are always critical to our City’s wellbeing. We are grateful for the Province’s recent $35 million funding announcement, as part of the Safe Restart Agreement. We have been emphasizing our message that sustained support and funding for Brampton will be crucial to our strong economic recovery, and our advocacy efforts have paid off.
We congratulate our colleague, Regional Councillor Paul Vicente, who this year was elected to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) Board as a Regional and Single Tier representative. At AMO, we also highlighted our most pressing needs in the areas of healthcare, transit infrastructure and postsecondary education opportunities. 
This Council is working to ensure Bampton’s voice is heard to help us fully recover from the pandemic and ensure economic success and better quality of life for all of you.

Mayor Patrick Brown & Brampton City Council
Message from City of Brampton CAO
Dear Residents:
In the blink of any eye, summer is over and we are entering a busier time of year. I hope you’ve had an opportunity to enjoy some time outdoors this summer – we certainly had many beautiful days.
As we head towards re-opening more of our programs and facilities, staff are working to ensure all protocols are in place to keep you safe. We are preparing our facilities with physical signage and decals about health, hygiene and screening reminders, Plexiglas where it’s possible and appropriate to ensure a physical barrier between you and staff, signage with clear direction regarding safety protocols, etc. We also continue our enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures to keep everyone safe.
Your health and safety continues to be our main priority. As you know, we all have a role to play. Remember to practice the Core Four actions to overcome COVID-19, 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
Keep an eye on our website to stay up-to-date about our re-openings and our virtual programs and offerings. And join us on our bi-weekly Tele Town Halls every second Wednesday to get the most up-to-date COVID-19 information.
