About This Project

urbanMetrics was retained by the City of Brampton to prepare an Economic Impact Statement related to the regional and local economic benefits of a major university presence in the City.  The scope of work included:


  • Identification of the economic benefits experienced by similar municipalities that have         attracted a university campus in recent years
  • Quantification of the economic impact of a university in the City
  • Identification of qualitative benefits
  • Assessment of local student demand factors relative to other locational options across         the GTA
  • Preparation of a SWOT assessment of location options in the municipality
  • Demonstration of ‘value for money’ in terms of a direct municipal contribution
