b) Resolution Regarding the Lack of Provincial Funding for Social and Health Services in Peel

Moved by Councillor Mahoney,
Seconded by Councillor Harker;

Whereas it is of the utmost importance for the economic and social well-being of the community that residents of Peel be able to obtain social and health care services when they are needed;

And whereas residents' ability to obtain health care services is restricted because the Region of Peel has the lowest per capita Provincial funding for community mental health programs, specifically:

  • For Community Mental Health programs Peel receives $12.70 per capita while the Provincial average is $22.50 per capita.

And whereas the Provincial government has appointed task forces to investigate and make recommendations on the funding and delivery of mental health programs;

And whereas residents' ability to obtain health services is further impaired in parts of the Region of Peel that are designated by the Province of Ontario as an official "under serviced community" in terms of Physician services;

And whereas residents' ability to obtain social services has been compromised by relatively low levels of Provincial funding, specifically:

  • For developmental services, Peel's per capita average of $37.89 compared to the provincial per capita average of $70.92.
  • For adult services, Peel's per capita was $7.92 while the provincial per capita was $22.17.
  • For childcare services Peel received $168.38 per capita while the provincial per capita average was $351.24.
  • For children's services (excluding child welfare), Peel received $48.81 per capita while the provincial per capita was $130.94.

For children's services (including child welfare), Peel received $158.88 per capita while the provincial per capita was $383.36;

And whereas the Region of Peel is required to raise $66 Million a year from property taxes to pay into the Provincial government's Pooling program that funds social service and housing programs outside of Peel;

And whereas residents of Peel pay provincial personal and business taxes at the same rate as every other tax-payer in Ontario;

Therefore be it resolved that the Minister of Health and Long Term Care consider all the health care needs for Peel residents and provide funding to permit the delivery of programs and services at a level at least equal to the provincial average per capita funding;

And further, that the Minister adopt the recommendations of the Toronto Peel Mental Health Task Force for the delivery and management of mental health services in Peel;

And further, that the Minister of Health and Long Term Care find alternative approaches to attract Family Practice and Speciality Physicians to the communities in the Region of Peel, including the provision of financial assistance to develop and implement recruitment strategies for additional multi disciplinary health care professionals;

And further, that the Provincial government adopt the funding formula suggested by the Fair Share for Peel Task Force to correct the funding inequity for social services in Peel;

And further, that the Province end the Pooling program in the Greater Toronto Area.
