Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

CH_chair-s-corner-christmas-cardOn behalf of Halton Regional Council and staff, I would like to wish you Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season! I hope you enjoy your celebrations with family, friends and loved ones. I always enjoy meeting new people and learning about the many ways Halton residents celebrate during this time of the year.

If you are looking for something to do with family or friends, our Local Municipalities offer seasonal fun for people of all ages. Visit their websites to check out events, festivals and attractions happening in Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville.

Essential Regional services will remain available over the holidays. If you require assistance from us during this time, please visit, use our OneHalton App or call 311. Some public facilities will be closed from 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 21 until 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 2. To learn about holiday hours at our public facilities, please visit,

I would like to thank everyone in Halton for keeping our community a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire. Season’s greetings and happy New Year from my family to yours—I look forward to working with you in 2019!
