  HS-A1. The Region of Peel’s Role in Housing (Oral)
      Presentation by Janet Menard, Commissioner of Human Services, Patrick O’Connor, Regional Solicitor and Director of Legal and Risk Management and Amy Chang, Supervisor, Program Funding Support, Human Services

Received 2013-320

See also Resolution 2013-321

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

Janet Menard, Commissioner, Human Services, provided an overview of the housing system in the Province of Ontario, the history of the provision of public housing in the Region of Peel, and the evolution of the system over time. She described Regional Council’s distinct legislative role as the Service System Manager for housing provision and differentiated between types of public housing, rent supplement programs, and ownership models amongst different providers. She included a broad overview of the capital and operational funding system.

Councillor Crombie arrived at 9:55 a.m.

Patrick O’Connor, Regional Solicitor and Director of Legal and Risk Management, provided an overview of the legal framework governing housing providers and the legislative evolution governing municipal public housing. He explained that legislative changes in both the 2001 Social Housing Reform Act and the 2011 Housing Services Act provided new governing requirements to the Region of Peel in its provision of public housing and working with community housing partners.

Councillor McCallion arrived at 10:15 a.m.

Janet Menard described five unique roles that the Region as Service System Manager have undertaken: system planning to conform with long-term provincial vision with limited local flexibility; managing the centralized wait list for housing; maintaining asset sustainability of all affordable housing in good repair and quality; maintaining operational viability and compliance of the system in a fiscally prudent manner; and supporting new development of housing.

Amy Chang, Supervisor, Program Funding Support Unit, Human Services, provided members with several different funding scenarios for new development and explained how it is determined if the project is financially viable.

Councillor Mullin asked that a report be brought back to address the following issues: increase in 2012 total appeals under the Housing Service Act; the actual tax dollars put into housing since the service was downloaded by the Province; how many applicants waiting on the centralized wait list are non-Peel residents; and justification for constructing four and five bedroom units.

Councillor Morrison departed at 10:30 a.m., due to other municipal business.

Councillor Palleschi asked that a report be brought back to identify why there are such large differences in the construction costs between housing projects. Janet Menard stated that the biggest cost driver is related to development charges.

Councillor Foley departed at 11:00 a.m., due to other municipal business.

In response to a question from Councillor Starr, Amy Chang stated that the average market rent information is provided by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) however, this information is only for bachelor to three bedroom apartments. To determine market rents for four and five bedroom apartments, a business case must be submitted to the province for approval. Councillor Starr asked that the details of the business case and how rates are determined be included in the report coming back to Regional Council.

In response to questions from Councillor Mahoney and Councillor Palleschi, Amy Chang stated that any surpluses for new building development stays within the individual project as capital, and/or working fund reserve.

Councillor McCallion departed at 11:30 a.m.

Regional Chair Kolb requested that the Regional Solicitor look at registering documentation on title to guarantee the future protection of any surpluses.

Councillor Starr asked that staff report back with further details on the Region of Peel’s $25.6 million allocated to homelessness prevention, how flexible the criteria is for allocation, and how staff monitors the system.

Councillor Sprovieri asked if the report requested by Councillor Mullin, concerning the centralized waiting list, can include details on where non-Peel residents are living while they wait.

Item HS-A3 was dealt with.

HS-A3. Bridge Funding: Hansen Project

Moved by Councillor Miles,
Seconded by Councillor Palleschi;

That Supportive Housing in Peel’s (SHIP) request for an interest bearing bridge loan from the Region of Peel for the development of 205 units of affordable housing at 247 Queen Street East, Brampton (Project), in an amount up to $19 million, be approved;

And further, that the Region of Peel’s duly authorized signing officers be authorized to enter into all security, agreements, and ancillary documents, deemed necessary by the Chief Financial Officer and Commissioner of Corporate Services and the Regional Solicitor to provide and secure the interest bearing bridge loan to SHIP for the Project, in an amount up to $19 million, in a form satisfactory to the Chief Financial Officer and Commissioner of Corporate Services and the Regional Solicitor;

And further, that the foregoing recommendations be conditional upon: SHIP receiving firm and final financing approval from Infrastructure Ontario (IO) for construction financing for the Project and being in compliance with, and satisfying, all conditions precedent and obligations of the IO financing commitments, and the Investment in Affordable Housing Contribution Agreements, Regional Loan Agreement, and all other Agreements entered into between SHIP and the Region of Peel to fund and complete the development of the Project; IO approving, if necessary, the bridge loan and the registration of security in favour of the Region of Peel in respect of the bridge loan; and the Region being satisfied with the terms of any priority or postponement agreements which it may be required to enter into with IO in respect of the bridge loan;

Carried 2013-321

See also Resolution 2013-320

RESOLUTION 2013-321 AMENDED BY 2013-629

In response to questions from Councillor Sprovieri and Councillor Moore, Janet Menard stated that the bridge financing is a portion of the necessary funding to start construction of the project. The first two floors, are allocated for commercial space and are to be paid for and owned by the commercial developer. Once the third floor commences construction, funding should flow from the province and federal government. She added that Supportive Housing in Peel (SHIP), as the builder of the project, are working on a memorandum of understanding with the commercial developer that would provide first right of refusal and full control over what vendors could operate in the commercial space.

Councillor Mahoney departed at 12:20 p.m., due to a personal matter.

  HS-A2. Peel Living as Housing Provider (Oral)

He stated that Peel Living is in the Residential Property Management business, and as a housing provider is accountable to the Region of Peel as Service System Manager. He noted all of Peel Living’s tenant mix is 68 per cent rent-geared-to-income residents, and 32 per cent on market rent while implementing five distinct programs over 43 separate properties.
