Meeting with York Region Members of Parliament

Chairment Statement Picture

Newmarket - York Regional Council is committed to delivering the services and improvements that matter most to our residents. Collaboration on affordable housing, broadband and rapid transit, including the Yonge North Subway Extension, were the focus of a meeting this week with our federal partners representing York Region.

Regional Council continues to invest heavily in roads construction as it is the top concern of our residents who are frustrated when they do not have the ability to move throughout our Region efficiently.

However, issues such as affordable housing for those in need, better broadband connectivity for residents in our more rural areas and subway and rapidway construction to reduce the amount of vehicles on our congested roads, require regulatory and financial commitments from all levels of government.

To advance these priorities and drive regional, provincial and national prosperity, we continue to work with our partners at all government levels. Meeting with our federal partners, regardless of their political party, provides the opportunity for meaningful discussions on critical projects requiring funding commitments from the federal government as we continue to build strong, caring, safe communities for all our residents.

As a Region, we are stronger together.
