Brampton (IPA: ˈbræmtən, ˈbræmptən) is a city in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario, Canada and the seat of Peel Region.
The City of Brampton is bordered by Highway 50 (Vaughan) to the East, Winston Churchill Boulevard (Halton Hills) to the West, Mayfield Road (Caledon) to the North and the Hydro Corridor (Mississauga) to the South.
Brampton is optimally placed in the GTA, with access to most of the area's major roads; a billboard placed at Pearson International Airport advertises that "all roads lead to Brampton".
Suburban cities in the Greater Toronto Area like Brampton, Mississauga and Vaughan are large product distribution centres, in addition to having automobile and other manuafacturing industries.
Isolated towns and settlements in the northern areas of the province rely partly or entirely on air service for travel, goods, and even ambulance services, since much of the far northern area of the province cannot be reached by road or rail.
