About the By-law
More than 25 Ontario municipalities have implemented similar by-laws. Starting January 1, 2015, the Idling By-law will be enforced.
The new By-law builds upon past anti-idling efforts such as the establishment of idle-free zones at all Town facilities and libraries. Idle-free zone signs have also been provided to all Caledon schools and some local businesses.
Monitoring local air quality and minimizing pollutant contributors is an environmental action priority of the Town of Caledon.
