It was on July 31, 1973 that Premier William Davis appointed Allan M. Masson, Chairman of the new Regional Municipality of Halton. On January 1, 1974 the County of Halton was dissolved and the Regional Municipality of Halton was established by the Regional Municipality of Halton Act, 1973.
For the past 40 years, Halton has cost-efficiently and effectively provided high quality programs and services. Today residents can connect with Halton Region in multiple ways – in person, by phone, through our website Halton.ca and multiple social media channels, including our new Twitter account, @RegionofHalton.
Halton Region is committed to being resident focused, well planned, safe and healthy. In 2014, we offer more programs and services than ever before. Our offerings include:
- Children’s Services
- Economic Development
- Emergency Management
- Heritage programs
- Housing Services
- Paramedic Services
- Public Health
- Regional Planning
- Regional Roads
- Seniors’ Services
- Social Assistance
- Waste Management
- Water and Wastewater
And while delivering these programs and services, we have maintained an AAA credit rating with a zero per cent property tax increase for the past eight years.
I am very proud of our past accomplishments and look towards a bright future, while celebrating 40 years of outstanding service to the residents of Halton.
On behalf of Regional Council, I want to thank all residents for helping to guide our Citizens’ Priorities, which we continue to deliver in 2014.
Halton Region is a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire. I invite you to watch our new video to see why.
Happy Canada Day!
