5. DELEGATIONS

a) Matthew Mendelsohn, Director and Jennifer Gold, Senior Policy Associate, Mowat Centre, Presenting the Mowat Centre’s Report on the Region of Peel’s Success in Integrating Human Services in an Age of Fiscal Restraint

Received 2013-3

See also Resolution 2013-18

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Jennifer Gold, Senior Policy Associate, and Matthew Mendelsohn, Director, Mowat Centre for Policy Innovation, presented findings from the “Mowat Centre’s Report on the Region of Peel’s Success in Integrating Human Services in an Age of Fiscal Constraint” which was undertaken to better understand the challenges governments face and strategies that may be taken to deliver high quality services in times of fiscal constraint and increased need. The report examines budget pressures and efficiency savings; complex social problems; and, evolving citizen expectations for the services they receive. The report was completed independently and shows the strong process undertaken by the Human Services department in accomplishing the difficult task of restructuring its service delivery. The results may be modelled by other municipalities and levels of government across Canada.

In response to a question from Councillor Starr, Jennifer Gold outlined how the integration process allowed Human Services to manage the increasing caseload during recent years without significant financial burden to the Region of Peel, and as the caseload returns to more normal levels, the department will redeploy resources to encourage further savings.

In response to a question from Councillor Crombie, Matthew Mendelsohn outlined that the Region of Peel was chosen for the report because the Mowat Centre has undertaken much of its current work by examining case studies that have demonstrated excellence in public policy implementation. The integration process that was completed in the Region of Peel was being talked about extensively amongst various broader public policy stakeholders and attracted the Mowat Centre’s interest in showcasing the project for an even broader audience. He further noted that while the report will not be commercialized and the benchmarks used in the report are the Region’s own developed measures, the process and leadership in accomplishing such a project is easily transferable to other governments across Canada.

Several members of Regional Council congratulated Janet Menard, Commissioner of Human Services and Human Services staff for their success in integrating service delivery.

Additional Item:

b) Update Regarding Incident at Malton Village Long Term Care (Oral)

Received 2013-4

See also Resolution 2013-2

Regional Chair Kolb extended his appreciation to the emergency services in Peel for their response to the elevator incident at the Malton Village Long Term Care Centre in December, 2012. He further extended his appreciation to the resident and her family for their understanding of such a difficult issue and confirmed that he had personally apologized to the resident and her family on behalf of Regional Council and staff.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, apologized for the situation that occurred, stating that in this case, the Region of Peel did not live up to its own expectations. He advised that three investigations are underway by the Region of Peel, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) and the Technical Standards and Safety Authority. Once the investigations are complete, a comprehensive report on the incident and subsequent actions taken will be presented to Regional Council.

Janette Smith, Commissioner of Health Services, noted that the Region of Peel’s investigation would be completed in the following week and that the report from the MOHLTC is expected to be publicly released in the near future. The Technical Standards and Safety Authority investigation has been completed and the resulting orders to repair the elevator and change elevator safety systems have been completed.

Chaired by Councillor E. Moore

HE-A. PUBLIC HEALTH

HE-A1. Destination Peel 2012: Immigrant and Ethnocultural Health
Presentation by Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health and Dr. Eileen de Villa, Associate Medical Officer of Health

Received 2013-13

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health, and Dr. Eileen De Villa, Associate Medical Officer of Health, presented findings on immigrant and ethnocultural health in the Region of Peel as a key step in understanding how to accomplish “Peel Public Health’s Strategic priority: Serving an Ethnoculturally Diverse Community”. Key findings include:

Dr. De Villa noted that this data would be used across all divisions of Peel Public Health to help provide effective services to meet the needs of the immigrant and ethnocultural community in the Region of Peel.

In response to a question from Councillor Crombie, Dr. Mowat described how the data is helping Peel Public Health communicate to the local immigrant population regarding problem areas, such as diabetes and its complications. He cited the effectiveness of this kind of local messaging as being attention-grabbing for clients and more likely to produce better outcomes. Further to another question from Councillor Crombie, Dr. Mowat responded that while some local cultural groups in the community are providing health-related services to the community, it is usually treatment-oriented rather than the preventative approach Peel Public Health is taking. He noted that Peel Public Health is in contact with many faith and ethnocultural groups in helping to provide its services based on an understanding of the ethnocultural and local needs of the community.

In response to a question from Councillor McCallion, Dr. Mowat outlined that, while the data shows that recent immigrants are healthier than many Canadian-born residents, it also shows that, as they stay longer in Canada, they demonstrate a trend towards the same unhealthy habits as their Canadian-born counterparts. Dr. De Villa added that this trend is attributable to several factors, but most notably is the social, cultural and commercial environment to which they are exposed.

In response to a question from Councillor Paterak, Dr. Mowat outlined that the data will likely have its accuracy and quality reduced in the future given the end of Statistics Canada’s mandatory Long-Form Census.

Councillor Tovey arrived at 10:56 a.m., due to other municipal business.

In response to a question from Councillor McCallion, Dr. Mowat outlined that the chemicals found at low levels in the food available in Canada is likely not the direct cause of various illnesses affecting the population since many countries of origin have looser standards for chemicals used in food processing and yet they are largely healthier than the Canadian-born.

In response to questions from Councillor Fonseca, Dr. Mowat outlined that Peel Public Health staff does not receive any information on immigrant health when they first arrive in Canada, but rather, the data are compiled later based on self-reporting by immigrants, and from sources such as vital statistics. He further noted that while Peel Public Health does not track the development of diseases in individuals over time, other institutions do, such as, McMaster University, and that information is used by various public health agencies.

In response to a question from Councillor Thompson, Dr. De Villa outlined that there is a vaccine for typhoid, however, it is not publicly funded, and therefore, the disease does persist, especially in the immigrant community.

HE-A2. Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Funding for Healthy Babies Healthy Children Public Health Nurse Initiative

Received 2013-14

HE-A3. Chronic Disease: What Provincial Partners are Saying About Reducing the Risk Factors for Disease

Received 2013-15

HE-A4. Update on the Region of Peel Seniors' Low-Income Dental Program

Received 2013-16

In response to a question from Councillor McCallion, Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health, explained that the Low-Income Cut-Off (LICO) is an income threshold number developed by Statistics Canada, below which a family will likely devote a significantly larger share of its income on necessities of food, shelter and clothing than the average family. The LICO is what determines eligibility for the Low-Income Seniors’ Dental Program in Peel.

Councillor McCallion requested that Region of Peel staff work with area municipal staff to develop, where possible, a consistent approach for determining income related eligibility for programs and report back to a future meeting of Regional Council with recommendations.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, indicated that the Region of Peel endeavours to find consistency where possible but noted that some income-based eligibility programs are prescribed by legislation and cannot be changed.

In response to a question from Councillor McCallion, Dr. David Mowat confirmed that, at the direction of Regional Council, new measures were implemented for the Low-Income Seniors’ Dental Program to require more proof of income eligibility which has resulted in a significant reduction in the number of eligible applicants.

ITEMS RELATED TO MANAGEMENT
Chaired by Vice-Chair Councillor C. Fonseca

MA-A. CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER AND CORPORATE SERVICES

MA-A1. Proposed Amendment 2 to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006

Moved by Councillor Morrison,
Seconded by Councillor McCallion;

That the proposed Amendment 2 to the Growth Plan to update the population and employment forecasts and extend the planning horizon for the forecasts and policies to 2036 and 2041, be supported;

And further, that the Minister of Infrastructure be requested to update the 2031 population and employment forecasts for the Region of Peel based on the technical report completed for the purpose of this amendment;

And further, that Region of Peel staff be directed to devise a growth management strategy to distribute the population and employment forecasts, in consultation with area municipal staff, as part of the next review of the Regional Official Plan;

And further, that Region of Peel staff be directed to organize a growth management workshop in 2013, for all stakeholders;

And further, that a copy of the report of the Commissioner of Corporate Services and Chief Financial Officer, dated November 23, 2012, titled “Proposed Amendment 2 to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006” be forwarded to the Ministry of Infrastructure, the cities of Mississauga and Brampton, the Town of Caledon, and the Conservation Authorities having jurisdiction in the Region of Peel, for their information.

Carried 2013-24

See also Resolution 2013-25

Councillor Morrison requested that staff prepare a motion for consideration at a future Regional Council meeting, to say that appeals should not be allowed once the Province has approved Regional Official Plan Amendments, or alternately, that costs associated with appeals be borne by the province, as it is a Provincial Growth Plan. She further noted that the Region of Peel’s position regarding employment and residential density targets should be strengthened, adding that rural municipalities, such as the Town of Caledon, are unable to meet the 50 residents and 50 jobs per hectare targets because they are linked together. She stated that the 50 jobs per hectare requirement is unrealistic in rural areas, noting that the measurement can only be met by office type employment. She further noted that new logistics and warehousing type industrial developments are built at very low employment densities. She advised the residential densities could be met, or perhaps even be higher, but the issue is meeting the employment density of 50 jobs per hectare.

In response to a question from Councillor McCallion, Arvin Prasad, Director, Integrated Planning, confirmed that the Region of Peel comments are consistent with the comments contained in the City of Mississauga’s report regarding the 2031 growth forecasts, which are currently underestimated.

David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer, noted that, while the intent of the Province is correct, the Province is dictating prescriptive policy formulas rather than expressing desired policy outcomes. He noted that the formulas are not working and the Province should be providing outcome-based policies that allow municipalities to determine how they achieve the outcomes.

Councillor Mullin stated that municipalities are unable to accommodate higher densities without the appropriate infrastructure to support them and she requested that the future report to Regional Council address the need for more infrastructure and sustainable revenue in order to accommodate further population allocations.

Councillor Thompson noted that the density issue has been raised with provincial representatives through the Intergovernmental Relations Advisory Committee and he suggested that the future report include recommendations for conveying the Region of Peel’s concerns to the Minister of Infrastructure Renewal.

Councillor Fonseca mentioned an upcoming growth workshop at which some of these issues would be addressed and enquired if Provincial staff would be invited. Arvin Prasad responded that Provincial staff have been made aware of the upcoming workshops and will be formally invited.

Staff was requested to report to the February 14, 2013 meeting of Regional Council with the requested information.

Item MA-B4 was dealt with.

And further, that a copy of the report of the Commissioner of Corporate Services and Chief Financial Officer, dated November 22, 2012, titled “Response to the Proposed Amendments to the Provincial Policy Statement” be forwarded to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, the cities of Mississauga and Brampton, and the Town of Caledon.

Councillor Morrison noted that her comments related to item MA-A1 also pertain to Item MA-A2.

With respect to the five year review cycle of the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS), Councillor Fonseca requested that the response to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing regarding the proposed amendments to the PPS include stronger comments regarding the need to coordinate the efforts of various provincial Ministries in order to achieve one review cycle for all provincial plans and policies, to minimize costs to municipalities.

Councillor Paterak suggested that the first priority to be highlighted in the report should be the harmonizing of terminology used by the various provincial Ministries.
