Proclamation
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

 

Regional Council proclaimed June 15, 2013 ‘World Elder Abuse Awareness Day’ in the Regional Municipality of Peel.

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day was launched as a global event in 2006 in support of the United Nations International Plan of Action, to recognize the significance of elder abuse as a public heath and human rights issue.

Peel Region supports and participates in a wide range of collaborative activities related to support for older adults including a close working relationship with the Peel Elder Abuse Prevention Network (PEAPN).

Update on the Vector-Borne Disease Prevention Plan
 

Regional Council received a report on the status of the Vector-Borne Disease Prevention Plan. “Vector-Borne disease” describes communicable diseases, spread through insect and tick bites. The two most significant Vector-Borne diseases in the Region of Peel are West Nile Virus and Lyme disease.

The main goal of the Vector-Borne Disease Prevention Plan in 2013 is to minimize the impact of West Nile Virus on human health through Region-wide surveillance. In addition, the plan will use Integrated Mosquito Management which includes larviciding, source reduction and public education.

Also in 2013, the Vector-Borne Disease Prevention Plan will remind health care providers in the Region of the signs and symptoms; laboratory diagnosis and management of Lyme disease. Educational materials on Lyme disease will also continue to be available to the public.

Proposed Name Change for the Canadian Legion Housing Project

 

Regional Council received a report on the Canadian Legion Housing Project which is currently under construction. The project will provide affordable rental units for seniors and families at 1155 Queen Street East, Brampton.

An official name for the project is required and several names were considered that reflected the historical significance of the area. The name ‘Norton Lake’ was selected because of the historical significance of the family that owned, resided on and farmed the land that the project now occupies.

Upon completion, Norton Lake will provide a desirable residence for seniors and families, as well as inclusive opportunities promoting vibrancy, health and self sustainability.
