By the numbers

Like the other two Brampton ridings, this district is young (a median age of 34.3, second-youngest in the province), full of large families (an average household size of 3.5, tied for second-argest), and has a large Punjabi-speaking population (the mother tongue of 17.49% residents in 2011).
