Message from the Mayor

Whether this is your first time or you’re a seasoned

user of our many wonderful facilities and programs, this

Community Guide is a great resource to quickly find all of

Haldimand County’s programs and activities, as well as

useful information including general municipal information, business resources,

community groups and upcoming events.

Fall is the perfect season to get outside and enjoy our many off-road

hiking trails and on-road cycling routes. Council has invested in additional

infrastructure to make it easier for residents to cycle our towns as well as

support the growing numbers of cycling tourists. Take advantage of the

additional bike racks in most towns so you can visit the many unique retail

shops and restaurants. There are also two bike repair stations (York and

Dunnville) for your use.

Public skates during the 2019/2020 fall and winter seasons will again be

offered FREE of charge in all County arenas. So lace up and head out on the

ice for some fun!

On behalf of Haldimand County Council, I want to thank our community groups

and volunteers who make our community programs, sports teams and events

possible. These dedicated non-profit groups make our community a vibrant

and diverse place to live and visit.

Sincerely,

Ken Hewitt,

Mayor

MUNICIPAL

INFORMATION

YOUR TAXES & OTHER

FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Haldimand County Council reviews and approves the

Tax Supported Budget every year. The Tax Supported

Budget is funded directly by the property tax levy, and

has two components:

Operating Budget - day to day operations of the

county (ie. salaries, wages, utilities, insurance) and

services such as operating arenas, keeping the roads

safe, maintaining local parks and cemeteries, providing

emergency services (fire, police and ambulance), and

collection of garbage and recyclables.

Capital Budget – investments in new assets/

infrastructure and maintenance or improvements

to the County’s existing assets. Some examples of

capital expenses include: purchase of equipment

and vehicles; resurfacing or reconstruction of roads;

enhancements to existing roads; renovations or

construction of new buildings.

For your property, the applicable tax rate is applied to

the assessed value of your home, this determines how

much you pay. Visit haldimandcounty.ca/financials/

property-taxes/ for more information on how property

taxes are calculated.

The value of your home is assessed based on its market

value effective January 1, 2016. All properties in Ontario

are assessed by the Municipal Property Assessment

Corporation (MPAC). For more information about your

assessment visit mpac.ca

Are you a new homeowner

in Haldimand County?

Make sure that we have your current mailing address so

that you receive your current property tax bill. You can

update your mailing address and account information by

visiting haldimandcounty.ca/financials/

property-taxes/

Water and Wastewater

Rate Supported Budget is also known as the Water

and Wastewater Budget and is specific to water and

wastewater services, which means this budget is fully

funded by the users, with no financial support from the

property taxes. The money from the user rates is used

to pay for all operational costs as well as contributions to

capital reserves to fund capital projects.

Billing and Payments

Have questions about your water & wastewater bill? Visit

our website under Services> Water & Wastewater> Billing

and Payments for more information and to change/setup

accounts. Unpaid account balances will be transferred to

the property tax roll with a fee of $32.00 for collection.

Note – Water and Wastewater services are 100% recovered from

the users of these system and have no impact on the tax supported

operating budget.

MUNICIPAL

INFORMATION

EMERGENCY SERVICES

10

The Emergency Services Division strives to provide the residents and visitors of

Haldimand County with prompt, professional and compassionate service

from well trained and well equipped paramedics and firefighters. We take our role

as first responders seriously and are “committed to providing high level service.”

Carbon Monoxide alarms save lives

Over 65% of all carbon monoxide (CO) deaths & injuries

in Ontario occur in homes. Many homes in Ontario have

on average 4-6 fuel-burning appliances that produce CO:

n fireplace n stove n gas dryer n water heater n furnace

n portable fuel heater

Only working CO alarms warn you of the presence of CO

and they’re essential to keeping you and your family safe.

CO Safety Tips:

Ensure all fuel-burning appliances and vents are

inspected annually. Find a registered contractor at

cosafety.ca.

Install CO alarms outside all sleeping areas if your home

has a fuel-burning appliance, fireplace or attached garage.

Test CO alarms monthly and change the batteries at

least once a year. Replace alarms according to

manufacturer’s instructions.

Stay warm & safe:

how to prevent a heating fire

Heating equipment like woodstoves,

fireplaces/fireplace inserts and chimneys are

the leading cause of heating equipment fires.

Keep your family safe by:

n Having your heating system and chimneys inspected

and cleaned annually by a qualified service technician.

n

n

n

n

Ensuring all outside heating vents are not blocked.

Ensuring woodstoves, fireplaces and fireplace inserts

are installed by a qualified technician according to

manufacturer’s instructions.

Always using a fire screen around the fireplace.

Allowing ashes from your woodstove or fireplace to

cool before emptying them into a metal container

with a tight-fitting lid. Keep the container outside.

Frostbite prevention tips for parents

Frostbite can lead to severe, permanent injury to body

parts exposed to bitter cold. Follow these steps to keep

your kids warm and safe:

Reduce the amount of time children spend outside when

the temperature falls to -15°C or colder, with or without

wind chill. Consider keeping them indoors when it’s -27°C

or lower.

Never send children outside unsupervised in extreme

conditions.

n Don’t let your child stay outside too long in the cold.

Have them come in for breaks and to warm up.

n

n

Dress your child in layers of clothing that can be put

on and taken off easily. Make sure as much skin as

possible is covered.

Provide warm, waterproof boots that are roomy

enough for an extra pair of socks.

COMMUNITY

PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

Haldimand County values its partnerships with

volunteers and appreciates the opportunity to engage

with community groups to enhance or create new

assets based on the priorities of residents, users and

stakeholders.

The Community Partnership Program (CPP) helps

community groups (or individuals in collaboration with a

group) make those dreams—big or small—happen. The

CPP is a clear, fair and consistent process for not-forprofit

groups to:

n Enhance existing facilities or create new amenities for

the benefit of residents, families and visitors;

n Maximize resources and efficiencies; and,

n Achieve common objectives.

Collaborative opportunities are identified and prioritized

through the CPP—which provides a single entry-point for

proposals—making the process of having your request

assessed as easy as possible.

The County’s CPP offers funding for Community Capital

Projects and Community Beautification initiatives.

Community Capital Projects are those initiatives which

are new and/or intended to enhance or replace an

existing asset on County property. Applications are

accepted year-round, and proposed projects can be

eligible for up to 35% in County grant funding towards

the overall budget.

All projects—whether or not they require County or other

funding or are 100% funded by the applicant—must be

assessed and approved through this process, before they

can begin.

Since 2011, 71 Community Capital Projects have been

completed, with more than $2 million in community

fund-raising resulting in $3.7 million in local infrastructure

investments…all led by community partners!

MUNICIPAL

INFORMATION

Among the projects the County has completed since the

program began is:

n Caledonia/LaFortune Park Disc Golf Installation;

n Friends of LaFortune Park Pavilion Rehabilitation;

n Canfield Black Settlement Marker;

n Cayuga Minor Ball Lights & Scoreboard Installation;

n Dunnville Fastball Tyke Diamond Installation

n Hagersville Lions Splash Pad;

n Jarvis Lions Park Accessible Trail; and,

n Selkirk Park Memorial Gates Rehabilitation.

The County recognizes the importance of beautification

to the civic pride and vitality of communities and each

year makes available $60,000 in grant funding to

support these initiatives. Community Beautification

partnerships showcase our towns and villages, help

attract and retain business and lead to potential tourism

and economic development opportunities. Applications

are accepted each fall, and are available online.

FITNESS ACTIVITIES

PROGRAMMING

& ACTIVITIES

Haldimand County is proud to have walking tracks in three facilities: Cayuga Memorial Arena, Dunnville Memorial Arena

and Haldimand County Caledonia Centre. These amenities are free and available for public use. In partnership with the

Haldimand Abilities Centre, a number of scheduled programs are being offered on our walking tracks and throughout our

facilities. These programs are FREE and we encourage you to participate and at the same time improve your

overall health!

23

Nordic Pole Walking

Nordic pole walking is growing as an alternative to

ordinary fitness walking. Nordic walking combines the

simplicity and accessibility of walking with simultaneous

core and upper body conditioning, which significantly

enhances aerobic effects. The result is a full-body walking

workout that expends significantly more calories when

compared to regular walking.

Brain Fit & More

Brain Fit & More involves fun movements that prime the

brain, mind exercises to stimulate the brain and lots of fun

and laughter. This program is open for any level of

coordination, ability or brain power.

Clean Air.

Made in

Southwestern

Ontario.

As the province’s leading clean power generator, we’re building a stronger future for Ontario.

This includes partnering with Indigenous communities to develop new renewable generation like

the Nanticoke Solar Facility. 192,421 solar panels now cover the former site of North America’s largest

coal yard. Today, Nanticoke is a symbol of OPG’s past, and its future as a clean power leader.
