Caledon Council advocates on behalf of our citizens to influence legislative, regulatory and policy changes at all levels of government.

Upcoming Advocacy

Rural Ontario Municipal Association

The Town of Caledon is participating in the Rural Ontario Municipal Association annual conference. This year's conference includes keynote speakers, expert panels, breakout sessions and engagement with provincial representatives, among other opportunities to discuss and debate rural municipal issues.

The 2023 conference will be held in-person in Toronto from January 22-24, 2023.

2023 ROMA Conference Town Positions include:

Growth and Planning Challenges

More Homes Built Faster Act (Bill 23): Pause release of Bill 23 legislation that is not in force yet, until consultation is completed with municipalities, First Nations and other stakeholders. Establish funding tools and strategies to offset municipal revenue shortfalls of Bill 23, ensuring that municipalities can plan and fund infrastructure in support of housing targets.

Affordable Housing: Consult with municipalities and stakeholders to finalize the definitions of affordable and attainable housing that are based on local household incomes, not on market value.

Local Planning: Work with municipalities on ensuring infrastructure plans are in alignment with growth plans.

Transportation Planning

Caledon Vaughan GO Line: Continue to support the Caledon-Vaughan GO Line business case to completion and include the rail service in the next Metrolinx Regional Transportation Plan Update with an in-service date of before 2041.

Mayfield West Transportation Hub: Expedite Frequent Rapid Transit Service northerly to Mayfield West Community (referenced as Project 64 in Metrolinx RTP) to make the public transportation hub in Mayfield West 2 functional.

Provincial Highway Infrastructure: Continue to advocate for provincial highway infrastructure including the highway 427 extension.

Highway 10: Work with the Town on developing the terms of reference for a traffic and road safety study, to be funded and led by MTO, of the entire length of Highway 10 within the Town, including the connection of Dougall Avenue to Highway 10.

Infrastructure Management

Municipal Infrastructure: Work with municipalities like Caledon to ensure our greenfield development can occur so we can meet both the housing targets and long-term asset management plans.

Broadband: Accelerate the allocation of broadband funding and address broadband gaps ensuring affordable internet access for residents and businesses.

Climate Change

Develop a policy framework for stormwater management in response to climate change to assist municipalities in managing stormwater; and build infrastructure that is resilient and adaptive to climate change. Align the Ontario Building Code with the 2020 national model code net zero ready requirements by 2030, and by requiring electric vehicle charging station infrastructure in new homes.


Amend section 8 of the Aggregate Resources Act and establish a regulation adding provisions that require aggregate site plans in any area with a Rehabilitation Master Plan (RMP) to conform to the RMP that is adopted by Council.
