The Region of Peel
Situated in the heart of southern Ontario’s major urban centres, Peel Region is the second largest municipality in Ontario, with a population of more than 1.4 million people and 143,000 businesses in the cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the town of Caledon.
Peel Region has undergone a major transition during the past few decades. Rapid population growth and commercial development have transformed what was primarily a rural area of farms and villages into a dynamic blend of urban, industrial and residential areas.
In 1974, the Regional Municipality of Peel was incorporated to provide a wide range of cost-effective programs and services over a larger geographical area that enhance our community’s health and safety, social and cultural development, environment, infrastructure and transportation systems.
Peel Region is governed by the Regional Chair and a 24 member Council, representing its member municipalities: the cities of Mississauga and Brampton and the town of Caledon. Responsible management, innovative programs and responsiveness to the needs of the community have been key factors in the economic growth and development of Peel Region.
Responsible and effective planning is critical to the success of the Region of Peel.
The Strategic Plan provides a foundation for establishing Term of Council Priorities, the annual Budget as well as program and operational plans.
Strategic Planning is focused on delivering the right services in the right way to our residents, business owners and taxpayers of Peel Region.
How We're Organized
The Region of Peel is comprised of five departments that work together to deliver award-winning programs and services to Peel citizens, including ambulance services, health care, long-term care, child care, garbage collection and recycling, water and water treatment, road maintenance and servicing and public housing.
To ensure the Region continues to provide effective programs and services to its residents, a strong emphasis is placed on attracting, maintaining and developing highly motivated and qualified employees who have a sense of pride in service to the public.
