Brampton City Council recently revealed which parts of Brampton are the fastest growing in terms of population.

Brampton is the ninth most populous municipality in the nation, and third most populated in the Golden Horseshoe Region, after Toronto and Mississauga.

In October, city council generated population forecasts for the 10 electoral wards for five-year increments, covering the next three election cycles: 2022, 2026 and 2030.

The report also provided a review of election ward boundaries, which council may adjust sometime in the future as the city continues to grow. The report used a study by Hemson Consulting Ltd., enlisted by the Region of Peel.

The city will see a total growth rate of 36 per cent within 21 years, by 2041, from a current population of 655,690 to 889,920.

Areas outside of Brampton Central will see the most growth. Starting West with Ward 6 having the most growth, more than doubling in size, with a growth of 112 per cent; then East with Ward 10, with 56 per cent; and South with Ward 3, with 44 per cent. Least growth is estimated for Wards closer to Brampton Central, except Ward 3: Ward 7, with 4 per cent; Ward 8, with 5 per cent; and Ward 2, with 9 percent.

Ward 6, the city’s most populous ward, will experience the greatest growth, followed by the second most populous as Ward 10.

In surprising contrast however, are Wards 2 and 3. Ward 2 is the least populous and is projected to experience the third-least growth. This compares to the much larger anticipated growth (projected to be the third-greatest) for Ward 3. These two wards are currently similar in population.
