Halton Hills is a town in the Regional Municipality of Halton, west of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Many of these local features are protected by the Conservation Halton, Credit Valley Conservation & Grand River Conservation Authority.The Town is divided into four wards, each of which elects two local councillors.

The Mayor is elected at large. The Mayor and the regional councillors represent the Town at the council meetings of the Regional Municipality of Halton.The libraries in the Town are managed by the Halton Hills Public Library Board.
