Regional Councillor Brampton Wards 1 & 5

Emphasize Federal Collaboration for Housing Affordability and Mental Health Support

The Big City Mayors Caucus (BCMC), hosted by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) in Calgary, united representatives from 23 major Canadian cities, including Brampton’s Councillor Rowena Santos, to address key urban challenges. Topics discussed included housing affordability, homelessness, and mental health, with a focus on collaborative solutions among federal, provincial, and municipal levels of government. FCM urged for a new municipal growth framework to equip municipalities with resources to address these challenges effectively. Councillor Santos emphasized the importance of collective action and innovative solutions in creating resilient cities. FCM’s recommendations, aiming for a fair and predictable growth framework, call for immediate federal action to support municipalities in meeting growing demands and providing essential services.
