Highlights

The budget increase for 2018 is 2.74 percent. More money for discretionary benefits like teeth and walkers. More money for new ambulances and Mobility Plus. I am presently part of the Social Housing Master Plan Committee, report due soon. The extreme cold has led to more people needing the homeless shelters. A temporary shelter will be set up at St. Mark’s Church in Kitchener with 70 spaces. If there is no room at the shelters, people are put up in motels. No one needs to be in the cold. However, the goal of our Region is Housing First with a number of hard to place people finding homes. The region is giving money to housing developments like the new SHOW house for permanent housing. Fentanyl is a pressing problem in the Region as it is in North America. A committee of staff and representatives from the cities and the Crime Prevention Council among others are working on the four pillars, harm reduction, prevention, enforcement and justice, and recovery and rehabilitation Drug Strategy
