September 22, 2021

OTTAWA, ON - David Tilson, Member of Parliament for Dufferin-Caledon, today rose in the House of Commons to congratulate Peel Regional Chair Emil Kolb on his retirement and to thank him for his decades of service to the residents of Peel.

“Mr. Speaker, I would like to sincerely congratulate Emil Kolb on his retirement. He has been Chair of Peel Regional Council and Chief Executive Officer of the Region of Peel for seven terms. He has also been Chair of the Peel Police Services Board since 1996.

Chair Kolb’s dedication to public service extends to more than five decades when he was an Albion Township Councillor in the early 1970’s and became a Regional Councillor with the Peel Regional Government in 1973. From 1985 to 1991, he served as Mayor of Caledon for two terms.

Chair Kolb has supported a variety of Peel children’s charities by raising more than $1.5 million through events such as the Emil Kolb Hootenanny.

These are just a few of Chair Kolb’s many accomplishments. Today, we celebrate the remarkable life of an outstanding public servant and wish him all the very best as he begins this new chapter.
