  Management
The Regional Municipality of Peel Accessibility Plan - September 2005
 

Regional Council approved the third annual Region of Peel Accessibility Plan, as endorsed by the Joint Peel-Caledon Accessibility Advisory Committee.

Similar to the 2004 Accessibility Plan, the overall goal of the 2005 Plan is to ensure that an accessibility component is incorporated into the Service Delivery Strategy and Business Planning processes of each Regional department. This will be achieved by systematically integrating accessibility planning into existing departmental operations.

Four key strategic objectives continue to be in the Regional Accessibility Plan for 2005:

  • To develop the ability of all Regional Staff to effectively and proactively identify and address accessibility barriers;
  • To strengthen organizational process issues that will support accessibility;
  • To address policy issues and optimize advocacy efforts, and;
  • To build public awareness and knowledge of accessibility issues.

2005 Peel Children's Water Festival

Regional Council received a report highlighting the success of the 2005 Peel Children's Water Festival (PCWF). The 2005 PCWF marked the tenth anniversary of the Festival and was the fifth time that the Region of Peel coordinated the event.

More than 8,500 people participated in this year's Festival which included over 5,000 elementary students and 500 volunteers who logged approximately 3,800 hours of service. The Community Day event brought 1,700 people who raised over $1,000 through the Charity BBQ, which was sponsored by Embridge Gas Distribution, for the United Way. Community Day was found to be a good forum for communicating environmental messages related to the protection and stewardship of water resources.
