Caledon to continue growing in Peel Region

Today, the Province announced that it will be updating the Hazel McCallion Act legislation to improve service delivery in Peel Region, preserving Caledon's connection with the Regional Municipality of Peel within a two-tier system.

As part of today’s announcement, the Province has focused the mandate and asked that the Transition Board bring forward recommendations on optimizing the delivery of services that support the commitment to build more homes, including land-use planning, servicing, roads and waste management. Regional services such as paramedics, public health, human services and housing will continue to be provided by the Region of Peel.

“We thank the Province for rethinking dissolution,” said Mayor Annette Groves.  “We know the needs of our residents well and will work hard to deliver these new services while advocating to the Province to support our growing community. Our overall goal has not changed, providing the best value for our taxpayers.”

"I take pride in the collective efforts undertaken in recent months. Our dedicated staff demonstrated their expertise and fostered meaningful collaboration with our peers at the Region," stated Nathan Hyde, Chief Administrative Officer. "The valuable insights we have acquired, coupled with the recent organizational restructuring, have positioned us to efficiently deliver the new services, effectively addressing the needs of Caledon residents."

The Town of Caledon will continue to  pursue the outcomes in the 2023-2035 Strategic Plan while delivering these new services. Caledon’s priorities remain enhanced transportation and mobility, environmental leadership, community vitality and livability, and service excellence and accountability. Caledon anticipates continued collaboration with Peel Region, particularly as both entities navigate the expected growth in the years ahead.
