November 01, 2021

ORANGEVILLE - David Tilson, Member of Parliament for Dufferin-Caledon was advised today that the Ontario Boundaries Commission has reversed their original proposal to move the Township of Mulmur to the Simcoe Grey Electoral District.

The Commission is an independent body with responsibility to readjust the electoral boundaries in the province of Ontario after the completion of the decennial census.

Between the censuses of 2001 and 2011 the population of Ontario increased from 11,410,046 to 12,851,821. The number of electoral districts increased from 106 to 121.

“Less than twenty-four hours before I was scheduled to appear before the Commission and urge them to leave the Electoral District of Dufferin-Caledon intact I received a telephone call advising that I need not attend as the Commission had withdrawn their original proposal and Dufferin-Caledon would continue intact with all of the Town of Caledon and all of the municipalities of Dufferin County. It’s a great day for the people of Dufferin and all the residents of the riding,” said Tilson.
