Sitting in Ontario, Brampton is actually a suburban city and a part of the population of 593,638 that run around the Greater Toronto Area. From a little village of 50 residents, Brampton took its name from the market town of Brampton in England. Once called "The Flower Town of Canada" as it had a large greenhouse industry, its economy today comes from manufacturing, retail, logistics, information and communication technologies, life sciences and business services. This is where you will find companies such as Coca-Cola Bottling Company Ltd, Gamma-Dynacare Medical Laboratories plus others. It's also home to a Canadian Forces Army Reserve Unit and plenty of higher education institutions. Coworking spaces have opened up in Brampton catering not just to its tech savvy youth that are hungry to become entrepreneurs, but to the older souls that have no desire to move from their own home-turf to do some work.
There is a plethora of interesting sites to poke around from stunning parks to museums, art galleries to splashing in the water at Wet'n'Wild Toronto. The shopaholics won't be disappointed as the major shopping hubs include Trinity Commons, the Brampton Mall, the Centennial Mall plus others, where you can happily trash your credit cards for hours. Brampton may not be known as a tech hub, but Canada is being touted as the business world's best-kept secret especially in the fields of artificial intelligence, clean technology and health care.
Today Canada is competing on a global stage and it's a major destination for commercial investment. The government is empowering new companies by hosting technology industry events featuring some of the world's best innovators and attracting international talent to work on world-changing innovations. The number of skilled foreign workers is skyrocketing and many scaling firms are actively hiring from overseas. Coworking venues are providing one more space for the creatives to gather en masse in collaborative mode to get their stuff done with a grin on their faces.
