Dear Friends and Neighbours,
Caledon has been described as a community of communities and when you look at the graphic below you can see why. Each and every village, hamlet and neighbourhood is a unique and interesting chapter in the Caledon story and that’s why I’m #CaledonProud
One of my favourite things to do is drive or walk and explore Caledon and even though I’ve lived here all my life I’m still amazed at the breathtaking views and landscapes.
We have some of the finest farm markets and stores in Caledon, when you purchase food and goods from them know you are getting high quality, whole foods. Here’s a link
to a map to all your farm fresh needs.
One of the best things about my job is that I get to meet with, talk with and hear the life stories from the people who make Caledon the great place is it. A few weeks ago I had the privilege of knocking on the door of a Caledon family to let them know they were chosen for the home ownership program with Habitat for Humanity.
It was a great experience and it reminded me why governments need to continue to address the issue of affordable housing and homelessness. I firmly believe that partnerships are the key, partnerships with organizations like Habitat for Humanity as well as community service groups and the corporate private sector.

Bolton Camp & The Caledon Council Golf Tournament
Hidden in the parkland on the north east edge of Bolton is the site of the former Bolton Camp. It opened in 1922 as a fresh air camp for low income families from Toronto looking to escape the city and enjoy nature and then In 1999 the camp was forced to closed due to lack of funding. Toronto and Region Conservation Authority has acquired the property and are planning to restore and renew it.
The Caledon Council Golf Tournament taking place on September 6th has chosen the Bolton Camp Project as their primary recipient of the tournament proceeds.

to register to golf and support the Bolton Camp Project.
Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the summer!
