TEMPLATE Letter for Members to Use to Submit Responses to ERO Posting on Growth Plan February 13, 2019
The government has submitted a proposal to make Modifications to O. Reg. 311/06 (Transitional Matters - Growth Plans) made under the Places to Grow Act, 2005 to implement the Proposed Amendment to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017. OSSGA has made the point to the government that the current policy framework is not working. Approvals for new mineral aggregate operations in Southern Ontario are taking up to 10 years to complete the process. There are too many overlapping policies and inconsistent approaches between the Provincial Plans, Regional Official Plans, Local Official Plans and Conservation Authority policies regarding the management of this essential non-renewable resource.

Capital Paving's Miles For Memories raises over $50,000 for Charity

September 24, 2015 at 2:28 PM

On September 19th, 2015, Capital Paving held its second Miles for Memories 2Km/5Km walk/run event at the Guelph Lake Conservation Area to raise funds and awareness of alzheimers and dementia related diseases.

 

Capital has a personal connection with alzheimers as its founder, David Stephens, was diagnosed and lived with alzheimers until his passing in 2014. Capital and its employees have been committed for a number of years to this cause and has held annual Coffee Breaks, participated in the Alzheimer Society’s Walk for Memories and has now organized two successful Miles for Memories events, all in an effort to raise funds for alzheimers research.

 

Over 130 people attended the event and through corporate and personal donations, the Miles for memories raised a minimum of $50,000 which will be donated to the Alzheimer Society of Waterloo Wellington. The funds will assist in the care for diagnosed individuals and to one day find a cure. Over the last several years, Capital helped raise over $125,000 and plans to continue supporting the Alzheimer Society in the future.

 

Capital Paving sincerely thanks Scotiabank as the events’ platinum sponsor and all other corporate sponsors that helped make Miles for Memories a resounding success.

 

To see a list of all the sponsors and learn more about the event, please visit the Miles For Memories website at www.miles4memories.ca. Photos of the event will be posted soon as they become available.
