THAT the Federal and Provincial Governments provide immediate broad and substantial municipal funding opportunities for well-planned, shovel-ready projects already prioritized under municipal asset management plans to provide immediate stimulus to the local, provincial and the federal economies in order to rebound from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 2.

When it comes to many home-based food businesses, they start with a love of food and a cherished family recipe. Whether passionate about making grandm goods or a new take on homegrown pickles, jams and preserves, we are making it easier for Ontarians to share their homemade goods with their communities and turn their passion into a successful business. As our government recently announced, Ontario has made changes to the Food Premises Regulation under the Health Protection and Promotion Act that allow more flexibility for small, independent businesses to sell their low-risk, home-prepared foods from their homes or at specia festivals and fairs. While these changes came into effect on January 1, 2020, the desire to start low-risk, home based food businesses has only increased during COVID, which is the rules now. Low-risk foods are non-hazardous and do not require refrigeration. They include such items as baked goods, pickles, jams and preserves, chocolates, hard candies and brittles, fudge and toffees, granola, trail mix, nuts and seeds, and coffee beans and tea leaves. These regulatory changes support Ontari food business, without compromising our high standards for food safety. The changes also give Ontarians new opportunities to buy locally produced foods. Good things grow in Ontario Ministry Headquarters: 1 Stone Road West, Guelph, Ontario N1G 4Y2 À bonne terre, bons produits Bureau principal du ministère: 1 Stone Road West, Guelph (Ontario) N1G 4Y2 41 - 2 - The Ministry of Health has published a guide to help such entrepreneurs take the recommended steps to succeed, in a food-safe way, in their homemade food business efforts: www.health.gov.on.ca/en/pro/programs/publichealth/coronavirus/docs/selling_low_risk_f ood.pdf I welcome you to use your networks to share this important information with those who may be interested. Starting a home-based food business is an excellent opportunity for people across Ontario to share their culinary creativity, build a business for themselves and be part of or.

Immediate action is not required on the part of conservation authorities or by municipalities related to the provision requiring 70% of municipally appointed members be elected officials. Current members should complete the remaining duration of their appointments. As new members are appointed, conservation authorities should be appointing members in a way that complies with this new requirement. A participating municipality mayalsoapply to the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks requesting an exception to this 70% requirement. The request should includethe rationale for the request, and what proportion of members the municipality is proposing to be elected officials. Requests should be sent to minister.mecp@ontario.ca. 2.Does a conservation authority need to immediately initiatethe term limits of chair/vice-chairs and rotate amongst participating municipalities? Immediate action is not necessarily required.Implementation of this provision could begin at the first meeting held this year (following the proclamation date of February 2, 2021), or at such other meeting as may be specified by the authority’s by-laws. A participating municipality or conservation authority mayalsoapply to the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks requesting an exception to the term limit or rotation. The request should include the alternative approach being proposed, and the rationale for the request. Requests should be sent to minister.mecp@ontario.ca. 3.When should conservation authorities transition to the use of generally accepted accounting principles? If not already the practice, conservation authorities will transition to the use of generally accepted accounting principles for local government and ensure that key conservation authority documents are made available to the public (i.e., minutes of authority or executive committee meetings, auditor reports) following proclamationof these provisions on February 2, 2021. 47 4.When do copies of municipal member agreements need to be sent to the Minister and made public? Please submit any existing agreements (on the number of total conservation authority members and number of members per participating municipality in aconservation authority) to the Minister within 60 days of February 2, 2021 (i.e., by April 3, 2021). If no such agreement is in place as of February 2, 2021, but such an agreement is entered into at a future date, please provide it to the Minister within 60 daysof executing the agreement. These agreements should also be made available to the public through the conservation authority’s website or other appropriate means within these same timelines. 5.Which provisions of the Conservation Authorities Act (CAA) are you proclaiming in this first phase? Provisions in the CAA that come into effect February 2, 2021, as part of this first phase include: Housekeeping Amendments Clarifying “Minister” means the Minister of the of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (rather than the Minister of the Natural Resources and Forestry) (Bill 108, 2019). Administrative change by striking out “of the Environment” from “Minister of the Environment” (in the section on CA dissolutions – clause 13.1(6)(c)) (Bill 108, 2019). Remove a legislative date (now stale) for a past transition period for conservation authorities (CAs) to up-date administrative by-laws (Bill 229, 2020). Government Requirements Non-derogation provision to recognize existing Aboriginal or treaty rights (Bill 229, 2020). Enable the Minister to delegate his or her powers to an employee of the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks(Bill 229, 2020). Governance Changes to the CA municipal membership provisions including requiring 70 per cent of municipally appointed members to be elected officials with provision for the Minister to permit less than 70 per cent on application by a participating municipality (Bill 229, 2020). Requiring copies of municipal member agreements on number of total CA members agreed upon and numbers per participating municipality in a CA agreed upon, to be made public and provided to the Minister (Bill 229, 2020). 48 Removal of the regulationmaking authority regarding the composition of the CA (Bill 229, 2020). Minister’s power to appoint a member from the agricultural sector with limitations added to the member’s voting rights (Bill 229, 2020). Limiting the term of the chair/vice-chair and rotating of the chair/vice-chair among a CA’s participating municipalities with provision for the Minister to permit an exception to these requirements upon application of the CA or participating municipality. If an exception is granted, this would allow a chair/vice-chair to hold office for more than one year or two terms, or a member to succeed an outgoing chair, vice-chair, appointed from the same participating municipality (Bill 229, 2020). Minor amendments to the ‘powers of authorities’: integrating theCA power to “cause research to be done” with the CA power to “study and investigate the watershed” in order to support the programs and services the CA delivers; to require consent of the occupant or owner of the land before a CA staff can enter the land for the purpose of a CA project (such as land surveying); and to remove the power of a CA to expropriate land (Bill 229, 2020). Require CAs to follow generally accepted accounting principles for local governments, make key documents (annual audit, meeting agendas and minutes and member agreements) available to the public (Bill 229, 2020). Minister’s Power Enable the Minister to issue a binding directive to a CA following an investigation (Bill 229, 2020). Enable the province, upon recommendation by the Minister, to appoint a temporary administrator to assume control of a CA’s operations following an investigation or the issuance of a binding directive, if the directive is not followed. Immunity is provided for the administrator (Bill 229, 2020). 49 50 UPXO!PG!BZMNFS!DPNNJUUFF! PG!BEKVTUNFOU OPUJDF!PG!QVCMJD!IFBSJOH QMFBTF!UBLF!OPUJDF!uibu!uif!Upxo!pg!Bzmnfs!Dpnnjuuff!pg!
