Requesting street names

Where new streets, either public or private, are proposed through a development application, the Town will require the developer to submit a list of requested street names at the time their application is submitted to the Town for review and approval. The Town recommends including more street names than required based on the number of streets in the development. The street names will then be reviewed by the Town and Region of Peel Street Names Committee. Street names must be approved prior to draft plan approval or other approval (i.e. Site Plan Approval).

A resident or other interested party can request a street name or a change in name by submitting the request to the Town’s Heritage Resource Office.

Corporate street naming policy

The Town has created a Corporate Policy on Street Naming to establish criteria for the naming of streets in the Town of Caledon, encouraging the use of street names of local significance.

This policy applies to all staff, Council, the Region of Peel Street Names Committee, the development industry, property owners and businesses for the naming of both public and privates streets.

The Town of Caledon’s Corporate Street Naming Policy has recently been updated. 

 Updates to the street naming policy
  •  Where a development requires one new street name, that name shall be of local historic significance.
  • Where a development requires two or more new street names, a minimum of one street name recognizing a Military Veteran and one other street name of local historical significance shall be required.
  • Special signage entailing a poppy symbol shall be used for all streets named in honour of Military Veterans.
  • Members of the public are invited to nominate the names of Military Veterans and Emergency Service Professionals for addition to the Town’s list of approved street names.
  • For the purpose of street naming a “Military Veteran” is recognized to be a one-time Town of Caledon resident who lost their life while serving in the Canadian Armed Forces.
  • For the purpose of street naming an “Emergency Service Professional” is an individual who lost their life while serving Caledon as a member of local Police, Fire or Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

Region of Peel street names committee

The Region of Peel and area municipalities, including the Town of Caledon, work closely together on the Region of Peel Street Names Committee to review all street names proposed for new development and the renaming of existing streets, to ensure there is no duplication, whether it sounds similar to existing or approved street names, is difficult to spell or difficult to pronounce in an emergency situation.

For more information, please see the Region of Peel’s street names and guidelines.
