Brampton is a bustling city of over half a million people in the Greater Toronto area. Founded in 1853, and once referred to as the Flower City, Brampton is now better known for its concentrated industry and its high levels of new Canadians. A very multicultural city, Brampton is a major destination for immigrants from all over the world, notably from India and Pakistan (40% of Brampton’s population).
Located close to the busiest airport in Canada (Pearson International Airport), Brampton is a major transportation hub, with rail, highway and air links to the GTA and North America. A billboard claiming that “All Roads Lead to Brampton” states a fact: with highways 401, 403, 407, 409, 410, and 427, Brampton is surrounded by major roadways.
