Happy Holidays!

On behalf of Regional Council I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

If you are staying close to home during the holidays, there are lots of fun activities happening in Halton. Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville all have family-friendly activities planned throughout the holiday season and for New Year’s Eve/Day.

We have so much to be thankful for in Halton and I am always inspired by the community spirit during the holiday season. We have many volunteers in our community that dedicate their time, talent and resources to make sure the holiday season is special for everyone. Thank you for helping make Halton a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.

All of our essential services will be available over the holidays. Some public facilities will be closed, including Halton Region’s administrative offices from 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 23 until 8:30 a.m. on Monday, January 4. For more information about holiday hours at our public facilities, visit halton.ca/closures. If you require assistance with Regional services during the holidays, please visit halton.ca/311 or dial 311.

I wish you peace, prosperity and joy from my family to yours! Enjoy the Christmas season and time with your friends and family.
