“Brampton’s neighbourhoods are home to incredible natural assets like parks, creeks and urban forests that support our overall wellbeing and make our communities more resilient to climate change,” says Tooba Shakeel, Senior Coordinator, Sustainable Neighbourhoods at CVC. “We’ll help you discover and enjoy these natural assets close to home.”
