A week after the grand opening of the Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness, the City of Brampton presented a core strategy to create a Health and Life Sciences cluster at this world-class facility.

The strategy recommends building this cluster with a focus on preventive care, which complements the service focus at Peel Memorial, takes advantage of growing trends, and would differentiate Brampton from health sectors across the GTA. This type of cluster would attract businesses involved with big data, health apps, population-based research, and personalized medicine.

“Brampton is doing game-changing things in the health and life sciences sector,” said Mayor Linda Jeffrey. “With a new facility coming, our central position in the Innovation Super Corridor, combined with the forward-looking approaches outlined in this study, we have a great opportunity to set a new course for Brampton.”

“We’re excited about the health and life sciences opportunities this study highlights,” said Bob Darling, the City’s Economic Development and Culture Director. “With many health-related businesses already operating in the city and partnerships we’re facilitating, we are well positioned to help build this cluster and enhance the quality of life in Brampton.” See online:
