Halton Region Advocates for its Priorities at AMO

By: Laura Steiner
Halton Regional Councilors attended the annual Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) conference August 15-18 on a virtual basis.  The conference serves as an opportunity for councilors to network with cabinet ministers, as well as take advantage of educational opportunities.
“The Minister meetings at AMO provide an opportunity to bring forward issues and concerns related to COVID-19 recovery, and important investments to ensure the continued health, safety and resiliency of our residents and businesses now and into the future, Halton Region Chair Gary Carr said.
Regional Councilors were able to meet with provincial cabinet ministers on Halton’s issues including investments in long-term care, public health resources to support COVID-19 recovery, and growth-related infrastructure.
Educational sessions available included COVID-19’s impact on municipal service delivery, broadband connectivity in Ontario, as well as changes to Conservation authorities.  For more information on the Region of Halton’s advocacy work visit the region’s website.
