Caledon reacts to the dissolution of Peel

May 24, 2023 (CALEDON) – Yesterday Council discussed Bill 112 (Hazel McCallion Act) which will dissolve the Regional Municipality of Peel. Through this legislation the three lower tier municipalities in the region will be independent and the Town of Caledon will become a single tier municipality.

“This is an exciting time in Caledon’s history,” says Mayor Annette Groves. “Caledon is situated in the right place in the GTA, we have an enviable quality of life, and tremendous employment and housing opportunities. The province has provided the Town the opportunity to be independent and plan our own destiny.”

Staff presented Council with an overview of Bill 112 on May 23, 2023. The presentation included information about the legislation and considered its potential impact on Town staff, residents and businesses in Caledon.

Caledon Council is committed to standing together, working with the province who promises to keep Caledon whole. This means maintaining service delivery and minimizing the financial impact to the community.

The Bill, if passed, will take effect immediately and the transition will be official as of January 1, 2025. In the next few months, the province will appoint a Transition Board to regulate and manage issues related to the transition.

“The Town of Caledon administration will support the Transition Board to ensure services are seamless and residents experience minimal impact,” says Carey Herd, Chief Administrative Officer. “This is an exciting time to work and live in Caledon.”
