HALTON HILLS , CA — The census numbers are out.Miltonis once again the fastest growing community inCanada, growing at a rate of over 56.5% from 2006-2011. In the 2006 censusMiltongrew by 70%, it listsMilton’s population at 84,000. Mayor Gord Krantz had told me it is over 100,000 now.Brampton’s population has also grown over 20% in the same timeframe. Here inHalton Hillsour population has grown by 6.7% which is slightly above the National average. Our populations is 59,000.

It just shows you the growth pressure thatHalton Hillshas been under the past 10 years. Town Council has done its best to manage our growth. All communities need modest growth. I think the recent statistics from CensusCanadashow that we have managed our growth.

We have many great organizations in our community. One such organization is Cancer Assistance Service Halton Hills (CASHH). This group of volunteers have been working for the betterment in our community for over 12 years. They have helped by providing over 54 drivers, taking patients to the city for treatment. But they do more then just drive patients for treatment. They provide Life Brand meal replacements, wigs, night hats, walkers and much, much more.
