Posted On Thursday January 07, 2021

Brampton – Brampton Councillor Martin Medeiros is the newest member of the Peel Police Services Board. Martin was first elected as Regional Councillor for wards 3 and 4 in 2014 and was re-elected to office in 2018. Martin replaces Mayor Patrick Brown as the Brampton representative on the Board.

"I'm very pleased to welcome Councillor Medeiros to the Board," said Board Chair Ron Chatha. "Martin brings extensive experience in the community to his new role as a Police Services Board member. I am confident that Councillor Medeiros will be an effective and valuable Board member. I also want to take this opportunity to thank Mayor Brown for his valuable contribution to the Board. As a tireless advocate for Brampton and the Region of Peel, the Board will continue to collaborate with Mayor Brown in his role as the Mayor of one of Canada's largest cities."

Martin was born and raised in Brampton to Portuguese immigrant parents. He received an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree from York University and a Master's degree in International Affairs and Public Administration from the College of Europe in Belgium. He brings over 14 years of public administration experience. His career includes progressive experience with the European Commission, the United Nations, and the Regional Government of the Azores, Portugal, and, most recently, with the Ontario government. Martin has led initiatives in economic development, employment and training, youth engagement, transparency and accountability, immigration and settlement, and crime and safety.

Martin has been actively engaged in his community from an early age. He has volunteered with Brampton's Youth Council, his local church, the United Way, and numerous organizations and associations in the Portuguese community. Martin has been very active in Brampton local sports, having represented Brampton in soccer during his youth and continues to participate in adult leagues. He is an active tennis player at the Brampton tennis club and has been a proud member of Brampton's local YMCA since 13.

"Over the years, I have had the privilege of living, working, and raising a family in this wonderful community. I am honoured to have this opportunity to give back further and serve the residents of Peel," said Councillor Medeiros. "I am looking forward to working with the Board and the Chief."
