Origin

(June 12, 2012) Report from the Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration

Summary

In July 2010, City Council directed the Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration to develop a Social Development Plan in collaboration with several stakeholders and City Divisions, including Toronto Employment and Social Services (TESS), and its agency, Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCH). Council also directed the General Manager, Toronto Employment and Social Services, as part of the Social Development Plan, to develop an Employment Service Framework to support local employment opportunities for residents as part of the revitalization effort.

 

This report highlights the resident process that created the Social Development Plan (SDP) and Employment Service Plan, and seeks Council's endorsement of the Lawrence-Allen SDP and the Employment Service Plan. The recommendations also direct the Executive Director of Social Development, Finance and Administration to continue supporting the SDP, along with TCH, several City divisions and community partners; for the General Manager of Toronto Employment and Social Services to oversee the planning, management and delivery of the Employment Service Plan; and to forward the Employment Service Plan to the Economic Development Committee for information.
