Construction on Caledon Trailway will bring town-wide high-speed internet

Caledon Trailway

November 8, 2021 -- Announced in January 2020, the installation of 35 km of new fibre optic cable will put roughly 85 per cent of Caledon residents and businesses within range of high-speed service.

This puts the Town of Caledon one step closer to completing a town-wide fibre optic backbone, with installation along major portions of the Caledon Trailway.

This portion of the project focuses on a section from Gore Road to Olde Base Line (see diagram below). Construction is set to begin November 9, 2021 with minimal impact to the Caledon Trailway and no closures due to construction.  (Trail users are requested to please exercise caution around construction crews and equipment.) 

This is the second phase of a request for proposal issued in 2019 and is being completely funded by Vianet.  Business and residential internet services will be offered commercially by Vianet once construction is completed. (For more information, visit

As part of this project, the Town of Caledon and the Region of Peel -- will co-build fibre optic cable along the same portion of the Trailway.  This will be used to bring Town and Region facilities such as fire stations, libraries, recreation centers and other public infrastructure online.

Weather permitting, the project should be completed by  December 31, 2021.
