Learn about our growth plans

Brantford is an Urban Growth Centre. The expansion of our municipal boundaries in 2017 is a key factor contributing to our long-term growth. As these new lands are developed for residential, commercial, and industrial use, the population is projected to reach 165,000 with 80,000 employees by 2051.

The areas transferred to the City of Brantford’s jurisdiction are described below. See the accompanying charts, map, and table for details and total sizes.

  • North Area: The first area is located north of the City between Powerline Road and Governors Road East.

  • East Area: The second area is located east of Garden Avenue, north of Highway 403. This area is proposed to be developed for employment (industrial) use.
