7. REPORTS

2. Staff Reports

a) Multi-National Corporate Child Care in Peel

Moved by Councillor Moore,
Seconded by Councillor Mullin;

Whereas interest from a multi-national corporation in purchasing for-profit child care centres in Peel and throughout Ontario has raised concerns about the impact of large corporate, for-profit child care on the development and maintenance of a high quality, accessible system of early learning and child care;

And whereas, the Region of Peel, as the service system manager for the early learning and child care system, has a mandate and established practices to ensure and promote quality care;

And whereas, the Region uses its Children’s Services Purchase of Service policy to set quality criteria above the provincial licensing standards, which operators must meet in order to access start up, operating and fee subsidies;

And whereas, Toronto, Ottawa and Greater Sudbury have resolved to fund only public and not for-profit child care;

And whereas, time is required to incorporate into long term Regional planning for child care centres possible changes in related federal or provincial policies and proper consultation with relevant stakeholders;

Therefore be it resolved, that a 12-month moratorium on the processing of new for-profit child care fee subsidy Purchase of Service agreements be approved, to allow further study;

And further, that in order to maintain the current service mix and parental choice, for-profit service providers, as at December 31, 2007 who have current Purchase of Service agreements with the Region and have demonstrated their willingness to work with the Region and other partners to provide child care programs and to participate in quality initiatives, will continue to be given consideration for funding and subsidies as long as they remain under their current ownership and continue to meet the conditions of their legal agreement;

And further, that where existing, contracted for-profit child care centres are sold, each request to transfer funding for that site will be evaluated on a case by case basis to ensure that the purchaser is not a multi-national corporate child care entity.

Carried 2008-88

See also Resolutions 2008-65 and 2008-89

Moved by Councillor Moore,
Seconded by Councillor Mullin;

Whereas it has been established that the early years of child education are critical to individual brain development and lifelong health and behaviour;

And whereas, the Council of the Region of Peel has long advocated for both more and higher quality early learning and child care centre spaces;

And whereas, concerns have risen provincially and nationally about protecting and enhancing the quality of the early learning and child care system with the entry of a large multi-national child care centre operator;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Regional Chair write to the Federal and Provincial governments to advocate on behalf of the children of Peel to request support for enhanced quality measures as they deliberate on Federal Bill C303 and the provincial direction with regard to multi-national corporate child care, and that both governments expedite their consideration of this issue to provide greater certainty for parents and for system managers;

And further, that Peel-area MPs and MPPs be requested to support the position of Regional Council with regard to the issue of early childhood development.

Carried 2008-89

Additional Item – Item 7-2b:

b) Local Improvement Project, Proposed Construction of Sanitary Sewer on Gordon Drive, Capital Project 08-2705 - City of Mississauga, Ward 7

Moved by Councillor Iannicca,
Seconded by Councillor Carlson;

That a 250 mm (10 inch) diameter sanitary sewer be constructed on Gordon Drive from the intersection of Breezy Pines Drive and Gordon Drive south to 2182 Gordon Drive, at an estimated cost of $118,000 (excluding applicable taxes), under Capital Project 08-2705, in the City of Mississauga, Ward 7, as a local improvement;

And further, that total funding to cover the Region of Peel portion of the works in the amount of $60,940 be allocated from the Wastewater Capital Financing Stabilization Reserve (R0242) under Capital Project 08-2705;

And further, that the portion allocated to the property owners in the amount of $57,060 be set up as an external recovery, under Capital Project 08-2705, and be collected as a special charge;

And further, that these actions will not affect the debt capacity of the Region, as this type of financing is considered “self liquidating” by the Province of Ontario;

And further, that the necessary by-law be presented to Regional Council authorizing the undertaking of the works under the Local Improvement Charges - Priority Lien Status Regulation O.Reg.586/06, filed under the Municipal Act, 2001, and the imposition of a sanitary sewer frontage rate of $450.00 per metre ($137.15 per foot) and a mandatory connection fee of $2,100 per lot, that will be due and payable at the completion of construction;

And further, that notice of the intention to pass a local improvement construction by-law be given in accordance with O.Reg.586/06;

And further, that the benefiting property owners be charged annually for 15 years, including an interest rate which shall be determined at the time a by-law is enacted;

And further, that those property owners be given the opportunity to commute the special charge by advance payment at any time during the 15 year period;

And further, that the Regional Clerk forward a copy of the report of the Commissioner of Environment, Transportation and Planning Services, dated December 7, 2007, titled “Local Improvement Project, Proposed Construction of Sanitary Sewer on Gordon Drive, Capital Project 08-2705 - City of Mississauga, Ward 7” to the City of Mississauga;

And further, that following the Committee of Revision, a “Notice to Amend” the tax rolls of the affected owners be sent to the City of Mississauga for appropriate action.
