Zone 3

Welcome to the Zone 3 home page.

The Counties of Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk and Oxford, the Regional Municipalities of Halton, Niagara and Waterloo, and the City of Hamilton are located in geographic Zone 3.

Municipal staff, as well as affiliated organizations are eligible to participate in the various activities coordinated within and by the Zone throughout the year. The Zones function as centres for AMCTO program delivery, information sharing, and networking. Twice a year (Spring and Fall) each Zone hosts meetings in their geographic areas. Zone meetings give members an opportunity to obtain and share information and key learnings, receive training, interact and network with colleagues, and form relationships that benefit them as well as their municipality.

This is a great way to network with peers and contribute to AMCTO activities at the local level. Executive meetings are held a few times throughout the year, primarily to make arrangements for the spring and fall zone meetings. The executive meetings are scheduled as centrally as possible, and often occur via teleconference.
