Brampton used to be considered a ‘commuter city,’ meaning people would live in Brampton for the financial benefits but would commute into Toronto for work. This is no longer the case. Many large corporations have set-up-shop in Brampton, but the cost of living has remained lower than in Toronto. These factors have made life in Brampton, Ontario, very appealing.
Once known as the Flower Town of Canada, Brampton is filled with parks and hiking areas highlighting the abundance of beauty in this city. Residents enjoy the diversity, which flows over into a rich cultural outpouring of theatre, art, and amazing food.
