Justine Hamilton-Arvisais from WCCD presents Mayor Groves with platinum certification, joined by Council and senior leadership.

The Town of Caledon has received its second platinum certification from the World Council on City Data (WCCD) for the implementation of ISO 37120 (Indicators for Sustainable Cities) standards.

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with the WCCD,” said Mayor Annette Groves. “Data of this caliber helps us make informed decisions when allocating resources and monitoring progress towards the vision outlined in our Strategic Plan.”

ISO 37120 sets parameters around data collection specific to sustainability and quality of life. By collecting and measuring data according to this standard, municipalities have access to information that supports evidence-based decisions, setting achievable targets and comparing performance against municipalities worldwide.

"By achieving the WCCD's top-tier platinum recertification, Caledon continues to be part of a worldwide community that leverages data for innovative service delivery," stated Nathan Hyde, Chief Administrative Officer. "This certification is a reflection of our commitment to enhancing our community in alignment with the 2023-2035 Strategic Plan."

In July of 2023, Caledon received its first platinum certification from the WCCD for the implementation of ISO 37120 in 2022. The WCCD was founded in 2014 and helps communities of all sizes worldwide embrace standardized, independently verified and globally comparable city data to become more sustainable, resilient, prosperous, inclusive and smart.
