Caledon successful in prosecuting illegal trucking operator

March 3, 2023 – The Town of Caledon has successfully prosecuted illegal trucking operator, 12501058 Canada Inc., resulting in a $45,000 fine and a prohibition order.

On February 16, 2023, after another attempt to delay the hearing was denied, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice heard the trial. In exchange for a guilty plea, the prosecution offered a reduced charge of $25,000. Counsel for the defence declined this offer and proceeded to trial, resulting in a conviction where 12501058 Canada Inc. was found guilty of using 14455 Dixie Road contrary to the Town’s zoning bylaws. The defendants were handed a prohibition order – which mandates illegal operations must cease on the property – and a $45,000 fine – a substantial fine for this conviction.

“We are pleased the courts are recognizing the bylaw violations occurring in Caledon and imposing the appropriate penalties,” said Alexis Alyea, Manager of Legal and Court Services. “Our prosecution team will continue to work diligently to keep Caledon a safe and beautiful community”.

This investigation began in November of 2021 when a resident submitted a complaint to the Town’s Municipal Law Enforcement team.

“We remain committed to reducing illegal trucking in Caledon and we will continue to prosecute illegal trucking operators who attempt to evade our bylaws” said Mayor Annette Groves.

To help Town staff fight illegal trucking operations, residents are encouraged to report suspected illegal trucking facilities when they see them. If you see a property that you believe is illegally, improperly, or unsafely storing trucks please contact Service Caledon by dialing 311 or by email at
