The Region of Peel has the authority to approve, revise or delete street names for roads which constitute the Regional road system. The three Area Municipalities have the same authority with respect to the local roads in their jurisdiction.
The Region of Peel, City of Mississauga, City of Brampton and Town of Caledon work closely together on the Region of Peel Street Names Committee, formed in 1976, to review all street names proposed for new development and the renaming of existing streets, regardless of jurisdiction to ensure there is no duplication, whether it sounds similar to existing or approved street names, is difficult to spell or difficult to pronounce in an emergency situation.
The Committee, which includes representatives of the three Area Municipalities, all Fire and Emergency Services, Peel Regional Police, Paramedic, Public Works staff meets approximately every two months to consider names in accordance with the Street Naming Guidelines.
A street name which is accepted by the Committee is considered approved for use by the City of Brampton and the Town of Caledon. The City of Mississauga recommends accepted street names to Mississauga Council for final approval.
