Upper Mount Pleasant: Brampton By The Numbers

45 minutes outside of the metropolis that is Toronto lies another bustling city – Brampton! In recent years, Brampton has seen huge growth. In fact, in several areas of Brampton, the population has doubled between 2011 and 2016. Currently the population comes in at 593,638, making Brampton the second fastest growing city in Canada. The ‘Flower City’, as it is sometimes known as, is an excellent place to live. Not only is there lots of growth in terms of population, but with growth comes more unique businesses, as well as facilities and recreation. These are just a few reasons we’re thrilled about our Upper Mount Plesasant development, a spectacular, new master-planned community just north of Bovaird and west of Chinguacousy, where you’ll feel right at home.

In case you’re hoping to know more about the community, we’ve done a little digging and have all the details on this charming area of Brampton. Check out Brampton by the numbers.

What We <3 About Brampton

If you’ve been paying attention to the news stemming from the 2016 Census, then you’ll know that Brampton is experiencing huge growth. The population has officially surpassed the half million mark, coming in at a whopping 593,638! That makes Brampton the ninth largest municipality in Canada and the fourth largest in Ontario.

Best Tobogganing Hills in Brampton

Sometimes it’s easy to forget what a beautiful season winter really is. We get caught up in the shivering, the slushy streets, the grey days and come to dread the winter months. But when you’re walking on a quiet snow-covered street, skating on an ice rink as slick as glass, or knee-deep in freshly fallen snow, helping your kids make a snowman, you’re reminded of how much fun the season can actually be. Last time we highlighted some great spots in the GTA to go skating, so today we’ll give you the inside scoop on another winter activity and where you can do it in Brampton: tobogganing!

6 Holidays Markets in the GTA Worth Checking Out

You can always count on stores to remind you about the impending holiday season. Upon waking up the day after Halloween, most shops will have updated their decor and stock with tinsel, ornaments, and balsam boughs. Despite thinking, ‘It’s too soon!’, you can’t help but feel a slight tinge of panic when you realize you have (understandably) not started your holiday shopping yet.
