BRAMPTON, ON. (Sept. 14, 2017) Ė The Region of Peel's Triple-A credit rating was reaffirmed by both Moody's Investor Services and S&P Global Rating. The Region has held a Triple-A credit rating for 22 consecutive years.

"We are proud to be one of only 12 Canadian municipalities with the highest possible credit rating a municipality or region can receive," said Stephen VanOfwegen, Commissioner of Finance and Chief Financial Officer.
