The Town is actively working to live up to its title as "The Greenest Town in Ontario," an award granted by TVO in recognition of its environmental leadership.
In 2005, Council adopted the Town's first formal environmental strategy with the Environment Progress Action Plan - a plan of initiatives for the Town to enhance its commitment to preserving Caledon's environment.
The action plan has led to a series of three reports, in 2007
(188 kb, pdf), 2009
(235 kb, pdf) and 2011
(1,811 kb, pdf). The plan highlights seven priority areas: Air Quality, Climate Change, Energy, A Green Economy, Environmental Awareness, Sustainable Planning and Community Capacity.
The third report, the 2011 Environmental Action Report
(1,811 kb, pdf), highlights significant progress in the target areas and outlines next steps towards continued sustainability.
