The Study

The Town of Caledon has completed the Caledon Transportation Master Plan (CTMP), a strategic planning document designed to identify and address the transportation needs of the Town to the year 2031. Building on the directions articulated in the Town of Caledon Official Plan (OP) and the Peel Region Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP), the CTMP establishes the goals, strategies and initiatives necessary to achieve the municipality's future transportation vision. The CTMP integrates municipal transportation planning with environmental assessment objectives and land use planning, ultimately providing for a transportation system that is sustainable, integrated and encourages a healthy and active lifestyle.

The Process

The CTMP was conducted in accordance with the master planning process following the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The CTMP addresses needs and justification at a broad level and recommended infrastructure projects will require further detailed studies as per the Municipal Class Environmental process

We Heard From You!

Public and stakeholder participation is an important, essential component of any planning process. The public engagement program featured a structured series of in-person and online activities. Residents were invited and attended a Public Information Centre, on Monday September 25, 2017, to learn more about how the transportation system is being improved and what benefits there are to the walking, cycling, transit and road networks.

Community feedback helps the Town make appropriate and well-thought out policy, program and investment decisions about its transportation system.

  • Creating a balanced transportation system that supports active and alternative transportation options;
  • Identifying and proposing ways to mitigate current and future road capacity issues;
  • Promoting consistent road classifications and design standards;
  • Itemizing infrastructure requirements to maintain and build the Town's transportation for the short and long-term.
