Climate change is real, and its impacts are already being felt here in Caledon. From increasing intense storm events that result in flooding to more extreme heat days in the summer, we know Caledon’s weather will become hotter, wetter and wilder in the coming years.
The Town is updating its existing Community Climate Change Action Plan, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prepare Caledon for the impacts of a changing climate.
This will be a community plan and we want to hear from residents, farmers, businesses, community groups and youth on how we can address climate change, and ensure Caledon continues to be a great place to live.
Fill out our online survey and be entered in a draw to win a prize! We’ll be giving out eco-prizes every 2 weeks for completed surveys. Your feedback will help shape our new climate change plan.
Are you interested in hosting your own climate workshop? We’ve developed a DIY toolkit to help community members host their own climate conversations with family members, neighbours, co-workers, community groups, and other organizations.
The workshop is designed for groups of up to 20 people and takes about 45 min to 1 hour to complete. Be sure to record the discussion and send the worksheets back to us to incorporate into the plan.
This tool kit includes materials that will help you prepare for, and deliver your Climate Workshop.
We’ll be heading out to community events to talk to residents about climate change. We want to hear how climate change has impacted you and what you think we should be doing as a community to address it. Look for us at an event near you:

A Hallowe’en party was held at the Community Hall before the children went Trick or Treating. Inside the hall was a myriad of games and crafts, music and food, kids and adults alike donned their favourite costumes and happily enjoyed the event.
The hamlet was alight with carved pumpkin faces, coloured lights and smoky home exteriors. Ghosts and goblins swayed through tree branches reaching out to those who dared to enter.
It was great fun for the children of Belfountain and hopefully the adults too.
As we did the walk about, it became very clear that many people went above and beyond to celebrate this ghoulish night. We would like to thank everyone for their wonderful pumpkin carvings and amazing decorated exteriors.
Prizes for 2019 Hallowe’en Decorating Contest go to:
The Spookiest House -Mark Heaton & Abigail Campbell
Creative Effort- Marcia and Greg Haywood
Most Creative Pumpkins- Ali and Jake Hurley

The 5-year Regional moratorium on road review for Belfountain proper is about to expire in the spring of 2020.
Residents need to start thinking about what you want the roads to look like in Belfountain and what the feel of the community will be for the future.
Past discussions with the Region have included such issues as, parking on one side of the road only, no parking in the hamlet, sidewalks and curbs on one side of the road from the community hall to the conservation area, more streetlights in the commons area, differentiated road designs denoting the road crossing area at the stop signs. All of these options have been discussed with the Region of Peel, none have been implemented.
As part of the Road Review in 2014, an environmental assessment was conducted, which identified sensitive habitat for many endangered/at risk species. The BCO filed a Part II order to prevent destruction of habitat for the sake of sidewalks and urban standardization. The Region had planned to install sidewalks and curbs in the hamlet. This would have required appropriation of property frontage and tree felling along Old Main Street and Forks of the Credit Road to the entrance of the conservation area. Neither of these actions was amenable to the board, so with support of legal counsel, a 5-year moratorium was declared on road reconstruction in the hamlet.
New discussions will begin with the Region in the Spring. We need you to invest in the process. Please watch for online postings and public meeting notices.
