Brampton

Brampton ( /ˈbræmptən/ or /ˈbræmtən/) is a city in Southern Ontario Canada. It is the third-largest city in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) of Ontario, Canada and the seat of Peel Region. As of the 2011 census, Brampton's population was 523,911, making it the ninth largest city in Canada. With the median age at 33.7, it is the youngest community in the GTA.

Brampton was incorporated as a village in 1853, taking its name from the rural town of Brampton, in Cumbria, England. Brampton was once known as The Flower Town of Canada, a title it earned due to the city's large greenhouse industry. This included Dale's Flowers, a company that won many international rose awards for nearly half a century. Today, the city's major economic sectors include advanced manufacturing, retail administration and logistics, information and communication technologies, food and beverage, life sciences and business services.
