The Residential Rental Licensing (RRL) Pilot Program is currently being revised based on resident feedback. Please read this joint statement from Council Representatives.
Review the slides presented by city staff at the Jan 31, 2024 Committee of Council meeting on the RRL Pilot Program Update.
City staff provided an update at the Committee of Council Meeting and January 31 2024 and we heard from many delegates, both in support of and against continuing the program. A summary of a few of the resident delegations in favour of the RRL program is provided.
The Residential Rental Licensing (RRL) Pilot Program, a two-year initiative for rental landlord registration and licensing, was approved during the March 29, 2023 Committee of Council meeting. The program’s framework was subsequently presented to the Committee of Council on September 20, 2023, and received unanimous approval.
In the past decade, the home ownership dream has become unattainable for many of us, especially the younger generations. Brampton has committed to building 113,000 homes in the next 10 years as our part of increasing the supply of homes. We also need to build the infrastructure to support our incredible growth and ensure our quality of life at minimum stays the same. How are we going to do this and what are the challenges?
My parents came to Canada in the 1970’s from the Philippines. The started a family, bought a house and are living the Canadian dream. Is this dream gone for immigrants and young people?

Brampton is the fastest growing big city in Canada, with an annual population growth rate of 4%. Our population will rise from about 700,000 people to 1 million by 2051. This increase will be driven by immigration, investments in public transit, and our proximity to Toronto. What is the “Brampton Plan” to accommodate this growth?
The City of Brampton and Region of Peel, like all municipalities, are the champions who deliver the services we all use everyday. As we grow, will we be able to maintain all of the services at the levels we’ve come to expect and deserve?
Our property tax system was invented prior to the telephone and has never been upgraded. Its time to make some changes to improve our quality of life.
