Jobs and Opportunity for Youth

April 29, 2013

New Ontario Government Plans to Tackle Youth Unemployment

The new Ontario government launched its comprehensive Youth Jobs Strategy, which would help more young people find jobs and make sure employers can hire the skilled workers they need to thrive in today’s economy. A highly skilled and adaptable workforce is critical to Ontario’s continued economic success.The strategy would focus on jobs, entrepreneurship and innovation for youth in Ontario:

  • Ontario Youth Employment Fund – would create new job opportunities for youth across Ontario.
  • Ontario Youth Entrepreneurship Fund – supports the next generation of entrepreneurs through mentorship, startup capital and outreach.
  • Ontario Youth Innovation Fund – supports youth to lead and manage industrial research, development and commercialization. It would also support young entrepreneurs at universities and colleges.
  • Business-Labour Connectivity and Training Fund to bring together business, labour, educators and youth to better prepare young people to develop the skills they need to succeed.

The entire strategy would be supported by a total investment of $295 million over two years, and would create 30,000 new job opportunities.

The Youth Jobs Strategy is part of the government’s plan to help Ontario’s young people succeed and build a prosperous and fair Ontario.

QUICK FACTS

  • The $195 million Ontario Youth Employment Fund would be available as early as September 2013.
  • The province will work with youth, young professionals and community partners, including the Premier’s Council on Youth Opportunities.
  • Ontario has created almost 400,000 jobs since June 2009, recovering all the jobs lost during the recession.
  • Ontario’s youth face persistently high unemployment. The employment rate of youth (the proportion of the population aged 15 to 24 with jobs) has also remained below its pre-recession levels.
  • The 2013 Budget will be presented to the Ontario Legislative Assembly on Thursday.

New Ontario Government Ensuring Access to Safe, Regulated Health Care

Ontario is ensuring high standards of care for kinesiology services by establishing the new College of Kinesiologists of Ontario to oversee and regulate the profession.

Starting April 1, 2013, individuals who deliver kinesiology services will be required to register and be accountable to the college. Regulation of the profession ensures that kinesiologists adhere to a common set of professional standards, a code of ethics, and participate in ongoing professional development. The new College of Kinesiologists of Ontario is mandated to protect the public by holding its members accountable and by investigating any complaints.

Kinesiologists use exercise, ergonomic services and lifestyle management coaching to help people with sport, work and the activities of daily living by improving movement, supporting rehabilitation following an injury and managing chronic disease.

Ensuring safe, quality health care for the people of Ontario is part of the province’s Action Plan for Health Care.

QUICK FACTS

  • Kinesiologists often work in interdisciplinary teams alongside other health and sport professionals in a variety of settings, including cardiac rehabilitation, long-term care, hospitals and community health care.
  • The government appointed a transitional council to develop the regulations, policies and by-laws that are required for the new College to be established and begin regulating the profession.
  • Thirteen Ontario universities offer kinesiology programs at the baccalaureate level.

QUOTES

Patients can be confident that no matter where they receive care, they are receiving high-quality care from trained professionals.”
— Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
“Our primary objective is to maintain the highest standards of professionalism and public safety in the kinesiology profession in Ontario. ”

Statement By Minister Of Finance On 2013 Federal Budget

March 21, 2013

Today Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance, released the following statement on the 2013 Federal Budget:

“Today we were looking for action on four key areas of importance to the people of Ontario – the closing of corporate tax loopholes, combating the underground economy, skills and training and infrastructure.

We are happy to see the federal government has taken action on each of these areas of priority to the people of Ontario.

However, we have some concerns about the way in which some of this action is proposed to be taken.

There are elements in this budget – particularly in the area of skills and training – that appear to remove much of the flexibility we need to adapt federal funding to meet the specific needs of the Ontario economy and labour market.

Because of changes in the structure of our economy, cooperation and a strong partnership between our governments are more important now than ever.
Integrity of the Tax System

We are pleased to see federal action being taken in this budget to close corporate tax loopholes, and address the underground economy.

While these actions are important to ensuring everyone is paying their fair share so both orders of government can fund vital public services, more opportunities to collaborate exist, and we need to continue to work together to continue to enhance the integrity and fairness of our tax system.
Labour Market

We also called on the federal government to renew funding for labour market transfers that are going to expire.

We are concerned that the conditions on a large portion of the renewed funding to deliver the new Canada Job Grant could force the Province to divert existing resources that serve under-represented groups, to this new federally-designed program.

After all, we have always said we need maximum flexibility to respond to the specific labour market needs of the Ontario economy.

Ontario already invests significant resources, supported by existing federal funding, to achieve results for both employers and those looking to upgrade their skills and find work.

Employment Ontario has helped more than 290,000 Ontarians access training and find work in 2012. Employment Ontario also connected more than 90,000 employers with the qualified employees they needed.

Today’s budget suggests that the federal government thinks it is better placed to design programs that meet the needs of Ontario’s workers. We believe Ontario has the best understanding of the labour market requirements in this province, and how best to meet them.
Infrastructure and Affordable Housing

Ontario is pleased that the federal government is committing to continued investments in infrastructure through its new Building Canada Plan.

Today’s Budget shows that the federal government is prepared to provide the financial investment needed to fulfill this role through a long-term funding commitment.

The Province expects the federal government to allow provinces to use these investments to support provincial priorities- like public transit, roads and bridges, highways and wastewater – and do so in a way that is smart and strategic, and provide value-for-money to citizens.

We are also pleased that the federal budget has made a commitment to continue investing in affordable housing. While we will continue to look for a longer-term commitment from the federal government to affordable housing, this is an important step forward.
Moving Forward

We look forward to working with the federal government in the coming months to ensure flexibility in these programs.

Overall, the federal government has today made some progress in moving Ontario forward.

However, the federal government needs to provide greater flexibility to provinces that are in the best position to determine provincial needs.

The people of Ontario expect all orders of government to work together to create good jobs, build strong, healthy communities and protect vital public services.”

Court Bulletin

APCO Industries Fined $100,000 After Worker Killed

March 21, 2013

 

TORONTO, ON – APCO Industries Co. Ltd., a manufacturer and distributor of oils, greases, rust preventatives and lubricants, was fined $100,000 for a violation of the Occupational Health and Safety Act after a worker was killed.

 

On January 28, 2011, workers were repairing a leak in the roof of a storage warehouse at the company’s Toronto workplace. The warehouse roof had six plastic dome covered skylights. A worker walking backwards tripped on the flashing of a skylight and fell through it about 5.5 metres (18 feet) to the concrete floor below. The worker’s injuries were fatal.

A Ministry of Labour investigation found that there were no guardrails around the skylights while the workers were on the roof, nor did the skylights themselves constitute a protective covering over the opening in the roof. At no time during the repairs were the workers wearing or using any form of fall protection.

APCO pleaded guilty for failing as an employer to ensure that a guardrail or protective covering was used to prevent workers from falling through the skylights.

The fine was imposed by Justice of the Peace John R. Cottrell. In addition to the fine, the court imposed a 25-per-cent victim fine surcharge as required by the Provincial Offences Act. The surcharge is credited to a special provincial government fund to assist victims of crime.

News Release

Completed Niagara Tunnel Project to Provide Renewable Power for 100 Years

March 21, 2013

New Ontario Government Committed to Building Clean, Reliable Energy System

The new Ontario government is now harnessing more clean, renewable electricity from Niagara Falls through the completed Niagara Tunnel Project.

The new tunnel, which is more than 10 kilometers in length, is channelling additional water from the Niagara River to flow to the Sir Adam Beck Generating Station at a rate of 500 cubic metres per second. This will supply Ontario with enough electricity to power the homes and businesses of a city the size of Barrie.

The largest hydroelectric project to come into service in Ontario for the past 50 years, the Niagara Tunnel Project is a significant provincial achievement, employing 580 people during the peak of construction.

Building a clean, reliable energy system is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to ensure we have the electricity we need to power the province’s homes, schools, hospitals and economy.

QUICK FACTS

  • When under construction, the Niagara Tunnel Project was the largest renewable energy project of its type anywhere in the world.
  • The Niagara Tunnel is as high as a four-storey building, and will propel water at a rate of 500 cubic metres per second, fast enough to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool in a matter of seconds.
  • About 500,000 cubic metres of concrete was used to line the tunnel – enough to build a sidewalk from Windsor to Quebec City.
  • The tunnel liner wall is 60 centimetres thick and made of cast-in-place concrete.
  • Since 2003, more than 360 megawatts of new, upgraded and refurbished waterpower projects have come online in Ontario, enough to power an estimated 240,000 households.

QUOTES

“This project is a source of pride as an engineering feat and as a practical solution for meeting Ontario’s energy needs through clean sources. The completion of this project will provide Ontario with a source of clean energy for the next 100 years.”
— Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Energy
“Congratulations to our contractor STRABAG and the hundreds of men and women who worked with extremely difficult rock conditions to safely complete this engineering marvel. This was a large, complex project that will serve Ontario for more than 100 years.”

Ontario Government Fostering More Financing Opportunities to Support Innovation, Grow Economy and Create Jobs

New Ontario Government Offers Energy Saving Tips to Help Cut Costs

On Saturday, March 23, Ontario will join the world in marking Earth Hour by turning off the lights between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m.

Earth Hour is a global event dedicated to raising awareness about conserving energy and fighting climate change. Everyone can make a difference by taking steps to conserve energy after Earth Hour when the lights go back on.

Making simple choices about energy use can reduce monthly electricity costs and help the environment.

Five tips to help manage energy use:

  • Seize the daylight: In the winter, keep curtains open during the day to draw in sunlight. Solar energy can help naturally warm your home.
  • Drafts be gone: Install weatherstripping and caulking around windows, doors and dryer vents, and insulate your home properly including plates on outlets to help save up to 25 per cent a year on heating and cooling costs.
  • Get with the program: When properly set, a programmable thermostat can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 10 per cent. In the winter, set your thermostat to 20°C when you’re home and 18°C when sleeping or away.
  • Heat efficiently: Have a qualified technician service your furnace on a regular basis to ensure it is working at maximum efficiency. Clean or change the filter regularly – a dirty filter reduces airflow and makes the furnace work harder to circulate the air.
  • Off-peak pays: Take advantage of lower energy prices during off-peak hours. Off-peak hours are 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on weeknights and all day on weekends and statutory holidays.

Building a clean energy system and a culture of conservation is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to create and support jobs for the people of Ontario, while ensuring we have the electricity we need to power our homes, schools, hospitals and businesses.

QUICK FACTS

  • You can learn more about how to conserve energy and save on your monthly bills by following the Ministry of Energy on Twitter for daily conservation tips.
  • This year marks the fifth year the Ontario government is participating in Earth Hour. Approximately 70 government-owned buildings will be turning off the lights.
  • According to the World Wildlife Fund, 152 different countries and more than 6,950 cities participated in Earth Hour in 2012, including 39 per cent of Canadians – 13 million people across 511 cities.
  • Through conservation, Ontario homeowners, businesses and industry have saved more than 1,900 megawatts of peak demand electricity since 2005 – the equivalent of more than 600,000 homes being taken off the grid.
  • Ontario’s elimination of coal-fired electricity generation is the single largest greenhouse gas reduction measure being undertaken in North America. The province will have shut down 17 of 19 coal units by the end of 2013. By the end of 2014, Ontario will be one of the first places in the world to eliminate coal as a source of electricity production.

LEARN MORE

QUOTES

“When it comes to managing electricity use and energy costs, we can all do more. Conservation is an important part of our collective effort to lower greenhouse gas emissions and continue building a clean, reliable, modern electricity system.”
— Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Energy
“Earth Hour reminds us we can each make changes at home to conserve energy and take a load off the environment. Small actions add up to big changes for the better.”

Helping Municipalities Collect Unpaid Fines

March 18, 2013

New Ontario Government Committed to Road Safety

The new Ontario government is taking action to help municipalities collect unpaid traffic fines from drivers who do not follow the rules of the road.

Legislation to be introduced later this week would, if passed, deny licence plates to drivers who have unpaid fines for offences such as speeding, improper lane changes, illegal turns, driving with no insurance and careless driving.

The legislation would also make it easier for municipalities to charge out-of-province drivers who run red lights and fail to stop for school buses.

Supporting municipalities and keeping families safe on the roads is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to boost the economy and strengthen communities.

QUICK FACTS

  • Unpaid fines related to the Highway Traffic Act and Compulsory Automobile Insurance Act account for approximately 70 per cent of the total amount of unpaid fines owed to municipalities.
  • Fines owed to municipalities are increasing by an average of approximately $100 million a year.
  • Ontario’s roads are among the safest in North America.

LEARN MORE

QUOTES

“Ontario’s new government is taking action to help municipalities collect unpaid fines owed to them. This new legislation, if passed, will also keep Ontario’s roads safe by making those who break the rules of the road responsible for their actions.”
— Glen Murray, Minister of Transportation, Minister of Infrastructure
“This proposed legislation will help ensure that municipalities like Ottawa can issue tickets to out-of-province vehicles caught by red light cameras, which is a serious concern in our city.”
— Yasir Naqvi, MPP, Ottawa Centre
“I am pleased that the Government of Ontario has brought this proposed legislation forward. This isn’t just a matter of collecting revenue, it is about accountability and the enforcement of laws that are there to protect public safety.”
— Jim Watson, Mayor of Ottawa

News Release

Premier’s Statement On Casino Expansion

March 15, 2013

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne released the following statement today:

“The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is in the midst of exploring additional opportunities for casinos in Ontario. Some news stories today are suggesting that Toronto is going to get a special deal with regard to hosting fees.

In light of these stories, I would like to reiterate the new Ontario government’s expectations as to what will happen with casino expansion.

First off, there will be no special deal for Toronto in connection with any proposed casino development. The approach OLG is taking in Toronto with regard to hosting fees will be the same as the approach being used in other parts of Ontario. The hosting fee for Toronto would reflect the size and scale that global gaming companies have confirmed is possible in the city. If the same capital investment and job potential are possible elsewhere, the same hosting fees would be generated.

While a lot of attention has been focused on Toronto, OLG is intent on expanding casino opportunities to a number of regions in Ontario. The underserved markets of North Bay, Kenora, Collingwood-Wasaga Beach and Belleville-Quinte are currently being considered for development.

My government will ensure that all regions of the province will benefit from OLG modernization.”

News Release

Deadline Extension for Livestock Producers Dealing With Drought Fallout

March 15, 2013

Producers Have Until June 14 to Submit Forms to Agricorp

The governments of Canada and Ontario are working to ensure that the province’s livestock producers who faced feed shortages after last summer’s drought conditions have the time they need to purchase and ship hay for their animals.

Today, the provincial and federal governments announced that the deadline to transport forage under the Canada Ontario Forage Livestock Transportation Assistance Initiative has been extended by 11 weeks. Farmers will now have until June 1, 2013, to transport forage, and then until June 14, 2013, to submit their forms to Agricorp.

The initiative was announced on Dec.14, 2012, making almost $2.4 million available to help affected livestock producers in designated drought areas of eastern and southwest Ontario purchase feed for their breeding herds over winter.

Livestock producers are eligible for:

  • Up to $0.14 per tonne, per kilometre to assist with the transportation of forage, or
  • Up to $0.075 per kilometre, per animal, to move animals to available feed

For further information regarding details of this initiative and how to apply, please visit Agricorp atwww.agricorp.com.

QUICK FACTS

  • This initiative is part of the AgriRecovery Framework, which allows governments to respond to unforeseen disasters that result in extraordinary recovery costs for producers.
  • This is one of many existing government programs, including AgriInsuranceAgriStability andAgriInvest, which are designed to help producers deal with income and production losses.
  • The federal government is also providing tax deferrals to eligible producers in designated drought areas on the sale of their breeding livestock.
  • In 2012, total government support to the livestock sector through existing business risk management programs is estimated to be $147 million, including $106 million from the Ontario-funded Risk Management Program, $20 million from AgriStability, $16 million from AgriInvest, and $5.35 million through the Production Insurance Forage Rainfall Plan.

QUOTES

“This extension will ensure Ontario’s livestock producers have the support they need to continue to winter their herds and get ready for spring. We will continue to work constructively with the Province in the best interests of Ontario farmers.”
— Gerry Ritz, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
“When Ontario’s livestock producers told us they needed more time to access forage for their herds, we listened. Extending this deadline until the pastures are ready will provide some of the help they need after last year’s difficult season.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario and Minister of Agriculture and Food

Community Alert Toronto Police Service
Keep an eye on your valuables

Recently, there has been a noticeable increase of thefts in a number of retail businesses in the division.

These thefts involve the removal of purses or wallets from purses left in shopping carts while the shopper is distracted looking at items or at the checkout.

Please remember to be aware of your surroundings and those around you at all times.  Know where your valuables are and keep an eye on them.  Do not leave your wallet in plain view in an unfastened purse.

Do not carry large sums of cash or credit cards and identification that are not needed for that shopping trip.

Do not write personal identification numbers (PINS) on debit and credit cards.  If you need a written reminder, do not keep the written PINS for those debit and credit cards t ogether in the same wallet.

Remember, if a purse containing house or car keys is stolen the risk of having your house broken into or your car stolen is made that much greater.
