Middle Childhood Strategy Framework
City Council Decision

City Council on August 5 and 6, 2009, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council adopt this Middle Childhood Strategy Framework report, and the principles and directions contained in it, and request the General Manager of Children’s Services and the General Manager of Parks, Forestry and Recreation, in partnership with other City program areas, to continue the development of a Middle Childhood Strategy based on this framework.

 

2.         Further research be conducted, in collaboration with the Best Start Network and other partners, on the needs of families for high quality after school programs for children ages 6 to 12.  The research should include the current distribution of such programs and any service gaps which may exist, including after school situations and the needs of Toronto's 6 to12 year olds, who, based on data, are not in a full-week after-school program in order to answer the questions: Where are they? Who are they with? What are they doing?

 

3.         The General Manager of Children's Services and the General Manager of Parks, Forestry and Recreation use this framework to align future Divisional service plans with an emphasis on ensuring common elements of program quality in out-of-school-time programs and equitable access to those programs and ensure  solid policies, procedures and funding are in place to fully realize the potential of schools as community hubs working with local agencies to deliver after-school programs for middle years children in addition to other vital community programs.

 

4.         City Council request the General Managers, Children's Services, and Parks, Forestry and Recreation, to build on the current research outlined in "Appendix 1- An Inventory of After-School Programs" to develop and include a comprehensive and detailed database of Toronto's after school programs for middle years children aged 6-12 including information on program cost, accessibility for children with special needs, program quality, cultural-appropriateness of programs and identification of school-based programs.

 

5.         These principles and directions be used to guide the development of a City response to the anticipated introduction of full-day learning for four and five year olds by the Government of Ontario.

 

6.         The General Manager, Children's Services, and the General Manager, Parks and Forestry and Recreation, report to the September 22, 2009, meeting of the Community Development and Recreation Committee on an implementation plan for the Middle Childhood Strategy.

 

7.         City Council write to the Province of Ontario to request clarification on the criteria for determining priority communities for the new After School Program.

City Council Decision

City Council on August 5 and 6, 2009, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council request that the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing implement the following changes to the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA) that would improve the City’s program for notifying landlords and tenants in residential rental properties about tax decreases and rent reductions:

 

a.         require that the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation provide an accurate tax assessment database to help municipalities notify landlords and tenants about tax decreases and automatic rent reductions, which would include identifying properties that are exempt from requirements for notification of automatic rent reduction and the reason for the exemption, and distinguishing between owner-occupied properties and tenant-occupied properties;

 

b.         amend the Residential Tenancies Act to extend the time limit for tenant applications for rent reductions due to property tax decreases so that tenants unaware of their right to a rent reduction may apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board for the rent reduction within one year of becoming aware of the property tax decrease;

 

c.         waive the application fee for tenants applying for a rent reduction due to property tax decrease;

 

d.         amend the Residential Tenancies Act to require that where the Landlord and Tenant Board decides that rents should be reduced for a particular unit in a building based on one tenant’s rent reduction application, all tenants in the building would be automatically added as parties to the application and would all benefit from the ordered reduction in rent;

 

e.         implement any legislative and operational changes required to ensure that tenants benefit from property tax decreases of more than 2.49% in cases where the property taxes are reduced after the notification period;

 

f.          provide specific direction on tax and rent reduction calculation methods where there is a rent reduction due to an assessment shift and when there is a tax decrease in a mixed use property; and

 

g.         pay the City’s costs for administering the Rent Reduction Notification Program, including the cost for database management, education supports, and the printing and mailing of rent reduction notices.

 

2.         City Council adopt the following portion of the instructions to staff in Confidential Attachment 1 to the report (May 28, 2009) from the Acting Treasurer:

 

               "the City provide a one-time grant in the amount one-time grant in the amount of $28,160 in 2009 to Money Matters - Voluntary Trusteeship Program operated by the Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre and to fund the grant, the Community Partnership and Investment Program (CPIP) 2009 Approved Operating Budget be increased by $28,160 gross expenditures and $28,160 revenue, for a zero net impact and the Office of the Treasurer’s 2009 Approved Operating Budget provide the funding by reallocating within the approved budget through a one-time interdivisional charge."

8.         The Director of Revenue Services implement procedures in 2009 to issue notifications of property tax decreases and rent reduction percentages to landlords and tenants of eligible rental properties where property tax decreases result from assessment or taxation changes occurring after the legislated timeframe for issuing such notifications.
