The City of Brantford has become widely recognized as a leader for remediation, redevelopment, and public education of brownfields. The Brownfields Discovery Tour is an exciting continuation of the work of the Brownfields Community Advisory Committee to raise awareness to both residents and visitors of the extensive work already accomplished.

“We’re excited to launch the Brownfields Discovery Tour that offers users a multi-faceted self-guided tour designed to educate the general public about brownfields and assist in attracting future investors. It can also be used to promote the availability of the brownfield financial incentive programs and other resources.”
