Chair's Corner - Halton Region, Ontario

Season’s greetings from Halton Region!

On behalf of Halton Regional Council, I would like to extend my best wishes to everyone in Halton this holiday season. This is a wonderful time to gather with family, friends and neighbours to celebrate traditions, create new memories and reflect on everything we are fortunate to have here in Halton.

Whether you are a resident spending the Holidays at home or visiting us from another community, there are plenty of fun things to see and do in Halton! Visit any of our four municipalities—Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton or Oakville—to discover family-friendly activities and events. Explore all Halton has to offer, from breathtaking natural landscapes and winter hiking to quaint downtown cores and fantastic local shopping, restaurants and more.

Our essential and 24-hour Regional services will remain available during the holidays. If you require assistance from Halton Region during this time, please visit halton.ca or call 311. Some public facilities will be closed from 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 22 until 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January 2. To learn about holiday hours at our public facilities, please visit halton.ca/closures.

I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season and I look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
