About York Web Content Viewer (JSR 286)

The truth is, it’s hard to tell the story of this place. And that’s what makes it so special.

It’s home. It’s work. It’s play.

It’s people. A tier of government. A place on a map.

The truth is, for everyone who calls York Region home, the story of this place is different.

And that’s a good thing. A wonderful thing.

Because, despite being a collection of individuals and places,

we choose, each day, to grow together.

As a community – a symphony of stories and voices.

That’s why, in 2018, The Regional Municipality of York will celebrate this place and those who call it home. We will celebrate and bring awareness to York Region’s core services and the impactful difference we are making in the lives of York Region residents, visitors, businesses and workers.

Because we are York Region and, while we may be diverse, we all…#loveyr.

What we Do?

York Region is a two tier municipality. This means that the upper-tier municipality (The Regional Municipality of York) delivers specific services for the lower-tier municipalities. York Region’s lower-tier municipalities include Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan, and Whitchurch-Stouffville.

Tuesday, April 17 is Ontario Law Day. The day is meant to enhance the public's understanding of the law, the role of lawyers and judges and empower the public at large.

On Law Day, Legal and Court Services launched a campaign to promote Regional service and help inform York Region residents of their options if they receive a ticket (also called an offence notice). Learn more at york.ca/tickets.

Earth Day Skip the straw

Earth Day is coming on Sunday, April 22 and York Region is asking residents to re-think or skip a simple everyday action to support a sustainable lifestyle and healthy environment.

The theme of Earth Day 2018 is focused on consuming less, especially when it comes to plastic. Plastic pollution is a growing concern because of its impacts to the environment. Of the plastic products used and taken for granted, plastic drinking straws are among the most unnecessary. So, if possible, skip the straw.
