Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) program, developed in 2021, is an important resource to guide the Town’s efforts in fostering all cultures and communities that call Caledon home. This program provides us direction to respond to the changing needs, interests and demographics of our neighbourhoods and communities.

As our community grows, the Town of Caledon is taking action on social topics and demonstrating our awareness of important initiatives.

What's happening:
