c) Federation of Canadian Municipalities "Call to Action"

Moved by Councillor Prentice,
Seconded by Councillor Bissell;

Whereas the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) has distributed materials to municipal politicians pertaining to the current federal election campaign, titled Call to Action , and those materials address a number of issues of concern to municipalities but do not address housing issues;

And whereas, the federal housing agency, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), has announced its intent to devolve administration of social housing to the provinces, together with a fixed and declining transfer of federal subsidies, and has already signed four provincial/territorial agreements;

And whereas, at least two provinces have announced some measure of devolution to municipal governments and others may follow suit;

And whereas, there is no assurance of adequate funding to maintain rent levels within the capacity of residents to afford nor to maintain buildings in a state of good repair;

And whereas, a 1990 Liberal Task Force chaired by the current Minister of Finance concluded that the Federal Government must play a lead role in policy, planning and funding to ensure that affordable housing for Canadians in need is a priority;

And whereas, there is a substantial level of unmet housing need in many communities and a growing need in many communities;

And whereas, financial support for income redistributive measures, particularly those in such high demand as social housing, properly must be derived from income taxes;

And whereas, the impacts of the deterioration of existing housing and of an inadequate supply of new affordable housing are most strongly felt at the municipal level, which level of government does not have sufficient resources to respond;

Therefore be it resolved that the FCM be requested to call on all federal candidates to state their support for a continued federal role in the funding of new social housing and that the FCM encourage all municipalities to do likewise in their areas; and

And further, that FCM be requested to call on all federal candidates to support, in the devolution of any social housing programs the contractual assurance, together with the transfer of funding as may be required, that both the quality of the housing stock and its affordability to residents will be protected, and that the FCM encourage all municipalities to do likewise in their areas;

And further, that the resolution be forwarded to the City of Mississauga, the City of Brampton and the Town of Caledon requesting their support;

And further, that the resolution be forwarded to all MPs and Candidates seeking Federal office in the Region of Peel.
