Brantford reviews & blogs
Pros: Brantford can be a great place to live and raise a family...
Cons: Brantford was an area that seemed to be stuck in a 'depressed state' that climaxed aprox 20 yrs ago as many large companies closed its doors which saw many people on the unemployment line, many for the 1st time in a decade or longer...
This is a good place to Raise a Family as the revitalization and growth is moving forward at a steady increasing pace...
