Region of Peel took a leadership role during the 2007 Provincial election and presented candidates and community stakeholders with non-partisan recommendations to change the way human services such as child care, social housing, health services and social services are funded in municipalities throughout Ontario.

Ontario is the only province that funds human services with property taxes rather than existing income taxes. The Region is responsible for providing support services for vulnerable or at-risk members of the community.
