Brampton is at the centre of Canada’s major transportation corridors, close to the U.S. border, and within a day’s drive of 158 million consumers. For this reason, it is the ideal place to locate North American operations. Brampton is also the first city in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), and one of only 10 in North America, to be designated an International Safe Community by the World Health Organization (WHO).This prestigious international award is being given in recognition of the outstanding work Brampton citizens are doing to make the community as safe as it can be. Collectively, there are more than 300 safety programs operating in the community to teach people how to stay safe from injury and violence.

For these reasons, it is no surprise that many sector leading Human Health & Life Sciences companies call Brampton home. A selection of these cutting-edge companies include:
