3-1-1- Service Update

Proclamations
National Child Day 2009
 

Regional Council proclaimed November 20, 2009 “National Day of the Child. “ Each year, November 20 is proclaimed National Day of the Child by the United Nations General Assembly, and Canadian Parliament under The Child Day Act. National Child Day provides an opportunity to promote awareness of the basic human rights to which children (under the age of 18) everywhere are entitled; and to celebrate children as actors in their own lives and as active citizens who can and should meaningfully contribute to decision-making as we create a Canada fit for children.

9-1-1 Awareness Week - December 7 to 11, 2009
 

Regional Council proclaimed December 7 to 11, 2009 “9-1-1 Awareness Week.” The 9-1-1 emergency number service is an essential component of our public safety system, and 9-1-1 Awareness Week helps promote the proper use of the 9-1-1 emergency number; explain circumstances which warrant the use of 9-1-1; and communicate the importance of reducing the number of non-emergency and nuisance calls received by 9-1-1.

International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women
 

Regional Council proclaimed November 25, 2009 “The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.” The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women is a time to raise awareness about violence against women and prevention activities that attempt to eliminate all forms of women abuse and recognize that everyone has the right to live free of violence.

The elimination of violence benefits society as a whole and requires the participation of all stakeholders and a holistic response that addresses issues such as employment, housing, childcare, education, health, safety and justice.

Regional Council also recognized December 6, 2009 as the “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women”, a day to remember the 14 young women from l’Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal and all women who have lost their lives in an act of gender-based violence. The “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women” was established in 1991 by the Parliament of Canada.

International Day of Persons with Disabilities – December 3, 2009
 

Regional Council proclaimed December 3, 2009 “International Day of Persons with Disabilities.” The Region of Peel and other organizations representing persons with disabilities and various levels of government across the country are recognizing December 3, 2009 as United Nations International Day of Disabled Persons. The disabled community in Canada exceeds 14 per cent of our population and persons with disabilities contribute to our community, as entrepreneurs, decision-makers, employees, musicians, artists, volunteers, parents, and grandparents. Recognition of this day calls attention to the ability and willingness of persons with disabilities to contribute to Canada’s economic, political and social communities, including the important work of the members of the Peel Accessibility Advisory Committee (AAC).
