(March 14, 2019) -- As one of the municipalities included the Government of Ontario’s regional government review, the Town of Caledon is inviting residents and businesses to have their voice heard by participating in the consultation phase of the review, which was announced yesterday.

 

“It’s vitally important that Caledon’s voice be heard,” said Mayor Allan Thompson.  “We make up over half the land base in Peel, including all the prime agricultural land, we have a unique mix of rural and urban and a rich cultural heritage.  I encourage residents and businesses to get involved and help ensure we have a “made in Peel” solution.”
