Brampton Centre (French: Brampton-Centre) is a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that is represented in the Canadian House of Commons. This riding was created in 1996 from parts of Brampton riding and in 2013, Elections Canada redistributed 3 ridings in the city of Brampton to bring back Brampton Centre. This was primarily due to large population increases in the Greater Toronto Area, and Peel Region in particular.[3]
