Community Development Halton introduces the Our Halton 2018 series to increase community awareness of the changing socio-demographic characteristics of the residents of Halton Region. Supported financially by the Regional Municipality of Halton and the United Way of Halton and Hamilton, this series provides not only vital information to all levels of government for their decision-making process in the provision of services to people but also community nonprofit social and health service agencies with this information are in a better position to mobilize their resources to bridge service gaps. It allows businesses to better plan, develop and deliver their goods and services to meet the needs and requirements of their customers. Community wisdom grows as residents are better informed of the needs and importantly the potential of their communities.
