9. OTHER BUSINESS

a) Resolution Regarding the Impact of Inadequate Provincial Funding for Key Social Services on the Region of Peel and its Residents

Moved by Councillor Corbasson,
Seconded by Councillor Dale;

Whereas the level of provincial funding provided to Peel for programs related to Children's Services, Child Care Services, Adult Services and Developmental Services is in most cases less than 50% of the provincial per capita funding;

And whereas between the fiscal years 1993/94 and 2000/2001, the shortfall in Peel's funding for these mandated government programs has risen by almost 60%;

And whereas if programs in Peel were funded at the present Provincial per capita level, approximately $138.9 million more would be available for providing these programs to residents;

Now therefore be it resolved, that the Council of the Regional Municipality of Peel supports the proposal of the Fair Share For Peel Task Force to eliminate the shortfall over a 8 to 10 year period by requesting the Minister of Community, Family and Children's Services to dedicate one half of one per cent of the Ministry's annual $2.7 billion budget for these programs to the Region of Peel;

And further, that funding in Peel be confirmed annually against the provincial average per capita to ensure funding equality across the Province.
