    Are we allowed to have 5 people, not including our family, over for outdoor visits

    Steve asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Steve, thank you for your inquiry. No, it is not allowed. Since the people are not from the same household, they are not permitted to gather as one group. Under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, social gatherings of more than five people are prohibited. This means that a social meeting or assembly of more than five people (who do not live together) in public or on private property is prohibited.

    Will annual community fitness membership holders be given a prorated refund or extension?

    Rajan asked 2 months ago

    Hi Rajan,

    Thank you for your question. 

    If you have paid for your membership upfront, extensions will be automatically applied to your annual memberships for time lost due to the closure. If your membership expires during the closure period, you will automatically receive a credit on your City of Brampton account when centres reopen. The credit will be pro-rated as of March 16.

    If you are paying for your membership through a monthly payment plan, please note that we will not be processing monthly scheduled payments until facilities re-open, at which time you can resume the remainder of time left on your membership plan. Should your membership expire while facilities are closed, your last monthly payment will be credited to your account for future use upon facility reopening.

    Hi, earlier today Premier Ford released a list of businesses that will be allowed to re-open on May 4th. Although it lists related items, I'd like to confirm. Will I be able to have the driveway and other landscaping done at my home?

    Keyur asked 2 months ago

    Hi Keyur,

    Thank you for your question. 

    In compliance with the Ontario Essential Business list, the City of Brampton is permitting the following landscaping and lawn care businesses to operate for safety, security and sanitation purposes:

      • Lawn cutting, dethatching, aeration, fertilizing
      • Clearing yards of refuse and debris, including the removal of animal excrement
      • Emergency repairs to fences and decks, (where required permits must be obtained)


    Driveways are not considered essential services and any work on driveways are not permitted.

    If a walkway (i.e. walking path) is being built from the driveway to the front doors, that work can continue provided it does not include driveway widening. Permits are not required for building a walkway.

    Thank you.
