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.
