City of Brampton – University Expansion Economic Impact Assessment

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
