Delegations
Greenbelt Cycling Route

Regional Council received a delegation and related report providing an overview of the Waterfront Regeneration Trust (WRT) and Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation initiative to create a 460km Greenbelt Cycling Route (Greenbelt Route) that traverse six regions, including Peel Region, from the County of Northumberland to the Region of Niagara and the City of Hamilton using existing infrastructure.

Marlaine Koehler, Executive Director, Waterfront Regeneration Trust, stated that the Greenbelt Route was designed as a tourism amenity, for daily commuting and to support active transportation plans. The establishment of a Greenbelt Route has positive economic, health, tourism, and transportation benefits to Peel Region. The Greenbelt Route aligns with the Peel Active Transportation Plan in developing a comprehensive active transportation network to encourage more walking and cycling and meets the Region of Peel’s Strategic Plan in the area of strengthening coordination with area municipalities, and community partners.

Health
Update on Regional and Provincial Tanning Bed Legislation

Regional Council received an update on the new provincial Skin Cancer Prevention Act (Tanning Beds) and the existing Regional Tanning Facilities by-law.

The provincial Skin Cancer Prevention Act (Tanning Beds) came into effect on May 1, 2014. Before the Skin Cancer Prevention Act was enacted the Region of Peel and the Town of Oakville were the only two municipalities in Ontario with by-laws restricting persons under the age of 18 from using indoor tanning equipment.

Peel Public Health staff support legislation to eliminate the use of tanning beds by youth under 18. Given that the new provincial Skin Cancer Prevention Act (Tanning Beds) is consistent with the requirements of the Region of Peel's Tanning Facility by-law, and that areas of duplication can be addressed, Peel Public Health will continue to work collaboratively with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to ensure the requirements of the Skin Cancer Prevention Act (Tanning Beds) are met.
