Located in the northern part of the Peel region of Ontario, Caledon is a town that maintains a strong bond with nature. This community is home to a population of 75,000 people and it attracts many visitors due to its inherent beauty, clean air and unique charm. This area has a long history of human population, with the first villages established in the 1860’s and gradually expanded to form a patchwork of settlements that still characterize Caledon today. The Town of Caledon was formally accepted as the seat of the local government on January 1st 1974, and received its current name based on a public vote.
With around 700 square kilometers of space, the community is thinly populated, with large swaths of untouched nature between the inhabited areas. Caledon is considered a safe and active community and this is reflected in the local way of life, which includes a lot of outdoor activities and interactions with wildlife. In a way, Caledon represents the perfect marriage of nature and civilization, boasting excellent infrastructure while protecting the environment. Its proud residents are determined to continue with the heritage and maintain the current setup long into the future.
Thanks to those features, the area receives a steady stream of domestic and international visitors, making tourism one of the most important sources of income. People come to enjoy the scenic countryside and spend time in picturesque villages dotting the area, an experience that can’t be easily replicated elsewhere. There are several nature preserves in the vicinity, while many enjoy views of Caledon Lake when the weather is fair. High level of outside interest provides a strong motive for the locals to keep things exactly as they are, except for the necessary improvements that come as a logical byproduct of modernization.
Humane animal control is one example of such improvement. Due to its unique mix of rural and urban zones, Caledon is a place where wild animals are commonly coming in contact with humans. While some of those contacts represent little more than a chance for taking a good photo; in some cases wildlife can cause inconvenience or even danger. Raccoons and squirrels can frequently find their way inside homes where they are prone to cause damage. While bats or birds could make their homes in attics and chimneys. Since they are living in the same area with people for a long time, the animals are becoming more audacious and sometimes repeatedly invade the same spaces. Permanently removing those uninvited guests without harming them can present a problem that residents and tourists alike might have to deal with.
