A report on population growth forecasts for all 10 of the city’s electoral wards broken down into five-year increments was recently submitted to Brampton’s council. The report provides an updated population forecasts for the next three election cycles in 2022, 2026 and 2030.
The report is the first step in a review of election ward boundaries, which council may adjust at some point in the future as Brampton continues to grow.
According to the study, Brampton’s population was 613,570 in 2016 and is expected to grow to 889,920 by 2041.
Ward 6, already the city’s most populated area with 88,180 residents, is projected to grow to 186,820 people by 2041. That’s followed by Ward 10, expected to see its population grow from 78,710 to 122,770 over that same period.
Ward 8 is expected to grow the least, increasing from its current population of 60,600 to 63,820 residents by 2041.
But many believe that getting an accurate population forecast is hard given that that Brampton remains a popular destination for newcomers and that number is fast increasing. -CINEWS
