Received 2010-4

See also Resolution 2010-61

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, introduced Allan Ebedes, President and Chief Executive Officer, National Quality Institute (NQI), an independent, not-for-profit organization that is committed to advancing organizational excellence across Canada.

Allan Ebedes, stated that on behalf of Her Excellency, Governor General of Canada Michaelle Jean, the Patron of the Canada, Awards of Excellence and the Board of Governors of NQI, it was his privilege to present Regional Council with the NQI Gold Award for Healthy Workplace, and also the NQI highest level of recognition, the Order of Excellence. He advised that in October 2009, NQI celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Canada Awards for Excellence Program with over 400 public and private sector organizations having received awards for excellence.

Allan Ebedes noted that the Region of Peel is the first municipality in Canada to be awarded the Order of Excellence and other municipalities are now following the the lead of the Region. NQI undertook a comprehensive review of the Region of Peel submission and conducted on site verification as part of the evaluation qualifying characteristics demonstrated by the Region of Peel vision and passion for public service excellence; management commitment and style, notably the Regional Chair and CAO; leadership commitment to the Regional Values and focus on the Common Purpose; high levels of staff support and trust in management; a continuous improvement culture; high standards for partnerships; benchmarking and collaborative relationships beyond the Region; a cascading of policies throughout the organization; commitment to quality and the environment; commitment to formal quality assessments and a sustained strategic quality focus.

Allan Ebedes noted that a well managed government, like any well managed organization, produces results that are beneficial to its stakeholders. Earning the highest level of accreditation from NQI is a testament to the leadership and staff dedication to excellence and to service of Peel citizens. He encouraged the Region of Peel to continue its excellence journey by applying for re-certification in two years’ time to keep the flame of excellence burning brightly in Peel Region.

Regional Chair Kolb acknowledged the support of Regional Council and leadership staff over the past few years for cultivating a culture of trust and confidence with taxpayers. He noted that the results of the 2009 Client Satisfaction Survey were the highest to date and echoed the remarks of Allan Ebedes by stating that the journey to excellence never ends.

Councillor Miles noted that one of the values most appreciated by Regional Council is the desire of the management team and all staff to serve our community in a caring way and the desire to achieve excellence. She commended the video presentation prepared by staff, noting that it very effectively captured the commitment of staff to the citizens of Peel.

Councillor Morrison expressed her appreciation to the executive management team and Regional Council for their leadership and support for the excellence journey, and on behalf of the Town of Caledon, thanked all Regional employees whose efforts and commitment support senior management and Council. She noted that the attitude at the Region of Peel is never “no”; it is “let’s find a way”, and this solution-oriented attitude is what sets the Region apart.

Councillor Prentice, on behalf of the City of Mississauga, concurred with the statements made by previous speakers and stated her appreciation for the level of customer service demonstrated by staff at the Region. She noted that elected officials often receive feedback from residents who interact with staff working in the community and that she has received many compliments about the professionalism, dedication and commitment of Regional staff. Councillor Prentice extended her appreciation to NQI for recognizing Council and staff at the Region of Peel.

Councillor Whitehead noted that he has served on Council for approximately 21 of the past 30 years and recognized not only the staff that currently serves the community so well, but also the staff and Council that preceded us as the population and economy expanded.

Nick Ferri, Director, Peel Federation of Agriculture (PFA) acknowledged the strong working relationship that the PFA has with Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) and the Region of Peel. Nick Ferri stated that the PFA has concerns regarding the CVC Watershed Planning and Regulation Policies which will be presented to the CVC Board on February 19, 2010. He identified the following concerns:

• The original intent of the legislative provisions of the Conservation Authorities Act is not followed;
• There is duplication of municipal jurisdiction under the Planning Act;
• Confusion is increased in the complex rule system;
• Costs will be increased to any scale of development;
• The property tax burden will be increased on Peel landowners; and
• The need for practical conservation is not addressed.

Nick Ferri requested that the PFA concerns be referred to Regional Planning staff to investigate their validity.

Additional Item – Item 5e:

e) Rae Horst, Chief Administrative Officer, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), Providing Comments Regarding the Credit Valley Conservation Authority (CVC) Watershed Planning and Regulation Policies, Final Draft, November 2009

Received 2010-7

See also Resolutions 2010-2, 2010-6, 2010-10 and 2010-62

Rae Horst, Chief Administrative Officer, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC), provided an overview of the issues that Conservation Authorities are currently facing. The Conservation Authorities have been given a mandate by the Province and as such are involved in the development plan review process. The Province has implemented new regulations to provide consistency with all Conservation Authorities and to protect wetlands. Rae Horst indicated that the Province is not assisting in implementing its environmental strategies and the Conservation Authorities have been required to implement public consultation regarding new mapping regulations. Policy documents have not been provided to determine how the public will be impacted by the new regulations and funds were not received from the Province to provide consistent consultation.

Rae Horst indicated that the Conservation Authorities and Conservation Ontario are not able to receive adequate support from the Province due to a lack of resources at the Ministry to manage legislation, regulation, policies and guidelines.

Rae Horst identified concerns raised by landowners, such as the farming community, who have landowner rights and are trying to make a living with increasing costs. The Province is trying to preserve the eco system and greenlands but the land owners are absorbing the costs for the good of all residents in southern Ontario. She cited Niagara Escarpment Commission, farm plans, costly techniques to deal with farm waste, Oak Ridges Moraine legislation, Greenbelt legislation, Conservation Authorities regulations, the Endangered Species Act, Windmill land evaluation, Green Energy and Source Water Protection as some of the initiatives that landowners must contend with. Rae Horst stated that the Province did not study the individual or accumulative impacts of the legislated initiatives and provided no financial compensation to affected landowners.

Rae Horst stated that CVC and TRCA try to do a good job with very limited resources and while delivery of services could be improved, operational audits will not provide the remedy. The Province needs to address its mandate, the impact of cumulative environmental legislation and the provision of financial compensation.

Councillor Mullin provided her comments on the impact of environmental downloading, the amount of Provincial legislation, lack of consultation and lack of funding. She indicated that funding required for the Provincial mandate and planning review could have been used to address other pressures. Councillor Mullin expressed concern regarding requests for operational audits and indicated that the Region of Peel needs to meet with CVC and TRCA to deal with issues relating to the Province and landowners.

Councillor Prentice echoed the concerns of Councillor Mullin and questioned the Town of Caledon’s resolution to audit CVC and the TRCA. She stated that a user-pay policy has been implemented due to the lack of funding. Councillor Prentice acknowledged the new Minister of Natural Resources (MNR), Linda Jeffrey, who is also a local MPP, and suggested that the Minister may be able to assist in the issues raised.

Councillor Thompson requested that staff report to a future meeting with suggestion on how the Region of Peel could assist in mediating the issues.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, stated that Regional staff have met with area municipal staff and will also be meeting with staff from the Conservation Authorities. He stated that staff will report back to a future meeting of Regional Council addressing the issues raised by Members of Council.

Councillor Palleschi stated that he would not support an operational audit of the CVC and the TRCA at this time. He indicated that some of the development industry complaints relate to the new mandate of the Conservation Authorities to implement Provincial legislation, but the industry is working much better with the Conservation Authorities than it did two to five years ago.

Councillor Whitehead indicated that Town of Caledon staff work well with the Conservation Authorities noting that one of the issues is the burden of Provincial legislation which causes delays. He suggested that the Province should authorize sub-delegation from the TRCA Board to staff with respect to site plan approval. Councillor Whitehead indicated that costs related to environmental protection will increase and he suggested that farmers should be subsidized.

Councillor Morrison suggested that a group be formed consisting of staff from the area municipalities, the Region of Peel, the PFA and the Conservation Authorities to identify issues and solutions which Peel could present to the Province.

Councillor Mullin inquired when the Province will have completed the planning review of the Conservations Authorities. Rae Horst responded that no timeline has been set due to the Provincial reorganization. Councillor Mullin suggested that the CAO and the Regional Chair meet with the Minister of Natural Resources.

Councillor Mullin suggested that a motion be adopted to form a task force that would address the issues, and include rural landowners and stakeholders.
