Council to advocate for Caledon at ROMA

January 20, 2023 – Caledon’s elected officials are attending the annual Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) Conference taking place from January 22 to 24 to represent Caledon’s interests.

From Bill 23 and infrastructure needs to climate change and public transit, Caledon’s delegation will meet with provincial ministers and members of opposition parties to present issues and challenges that require provincial support.

“My Council colleagues and I look forward to representing Caledon at the 2023 ROMA Conference,” said Mayor Annette Groves. “We are eager and ready to make sure Caledon’s voice is heard and that critical local issues are brought to the attention of key provincial decision makers.”

The Province and the Region have identified Caledon as a major growth area. The Town will propose solutions to several issues to continue planning for a growing, prosperous and sustainable Caledon. Key issues include:

  • More Homes Built Faster Act (Bill 23)
  • Transportation planning
  • Climate change
  • Road safety
  • Infrastructure funding

Caledon delegates plan to meet with representatives from the Ministry of Transportation, Ministry of Infrastructure and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing in particular.

Conversations with provincial representatives at ROMA are pivotal to furthering the Town’s short- and long-term priorities and, in the past, have had a direct impact in the community. Previous successes include increased safety measures on Highway 10 and the commitment to multiple new transportation options for Caledon, including the Caledon-Vaughan GO rail line as part of the Greater Golden Horseshoe Transportation Plan.
