9. OTHER BUSINESS

b) Resolution regarding the Impacts of Immigration on Municipalities

Moved by Councillor Mullin,
Seconded by Councillor Morrison;

Whereas increased enforcement of immigration legislation in the United States is resulting in significant increases in the number of people claiming refugee status in Canada;

And whereas, the increased numbers of refugee claimants are adding significant costs to Ontario municipally delivered social assistance and homeless shelter services;

And whereas, these costs to municipalities are increasing due to the length of time it takes the Federal government to adjudicate these refugee claims;

And whereas, refugee claims and work permits can take many months to process, adding to stress on the families fleeing to Canada while they remain dependent on shelters and social assistance;

And whereas, the processing of refugee claims, and all decisions related to Immigration is the sole responsibility of the Federal Government;

And whereas, the Provincial Government is responsible for sharing the cost of social assistance program administration costs;

And whereas, both the Federal and Provincial Governments continue to enjoy significant budget surpluses while municipalities struggle to meet the needs of their communities;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Provincial government be requested to provide full funding for social assistance, shelter, basic needs, health care, settlement and increased administration costs related to the influx of these refugee claimants;

And further, that the Federal government be requested to expedite immigration processes for refugee claimant meetings, refugee hearings, health clearance and work permits;

And further, that the Heads of Council of Hamilton, Niagara, Peel, Toronto and Windsor work collectively to advocate for the above;

And further, that Region of Peel area MPs and MPPs be requested to advocate on the Region’s behalf on this issue with their governments;

And further, that the Ontario Caucus of the Canadian Federation of Municipalities (FCM) be requested to obtain and review the Canadian-Provincial Immigration Agreements that are currently in effect;

And further, that a copy of the this resolution be sent to the Ministers of Citizenship and Immigration Canada and Ontario, the Minister of Human Resources Development Canada, the Minister of Community & Social Services of Ontario and the Ontario Caucus of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM).

And whereas, the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe under the Places to Grow Act, 2005, contains policies for managing growth and development to the year 2031, consistent with the purpose and objectives of GO Transit and underscoring the provincial mandate for operating and funding GO Transit;

And whereas, the GO Transit interregional commuter system benefits all residents of the GTA/H municipalities and beyond;

And whereas, the GTA/H municipalities continue to face growing financial pressures arising from their own community priorities such as rehabilitating aging infrastructure as well as investing in new infrastructure which are vital to maintaining the quality of life in these communities;

And whereas, the councils of the GTA/H municipalities have repeatedly petitioned the Province of Ontario to resolve the issue of municipal funding of the GO Transit Growth Capital Plan since the transfer of GO Transit back to the Province;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Regional Municipality of Peel requests that the Province of Ontario assume funding responsibility for the GO Transit Growth Capital Plan to the extent that Durham Region, Halton Region, Peel Region, York Region, City of Hamilton and City of Toronto be relieved of any further obligation to provide any further funding as of March 31, 2008;
