Dufferin County is updating its Official Plan


The Official Plan is the County’s vision for the future. This review process will help answer the following questions:

  • Where will future residents live?
  • What types of houses will be built?
  • Where will people work?
  • How will we move around the County?
  • How will we protect our agricultural areas and natural features?


We are expecting to grow 95,000 in population and 39,000 in jobs by 2051 according to the growth forecast release by the Province!


One key element of this review process is to engage with people in our community!


We want to hear from you.

    Since late 2019, the County has been working on the Municipal Comprehensive Review – a series of studies aiming to help us plan how we shape the growth of Dufferin County until the year 2051.
