Learning from past Tourism experiences in the Town of Caledon to build for the future

Businesses, Visitors – We want to hear from you!

In 2015, the Town of Caledon will be hosting the equestrian events for the TORONTO 2015 Pan American Games at the Caledon Equestrian Park. The Town will attract significant international attention, which is expected to amplify Caledon’s profile as a competitive tourism destination.

The Town of Caledon has embarked on a Tourism Study, to maximize the opportunity the Pan Am Games brings, and the legacy they will leave. The Tourism Study will provide a plan to enhance and expand local tourism opportunities and experiences, and identify potential legacy opportunities from hosting the Pan Am Games. The plans that come from the study will support community vibrancy, local economic growth and resiliency. Sierra Planning Management along with partner the Tourism Company has been retained by the Town to develop the study.
