Committee Recommendations

The Executive Committee submits this item to Council without recommendation.

Decision Advice and Other Information

The Executive Committee requested the Executive Director, Social Development, Finance and Administration to report directly to Council on this item, with further recommendations, if necessary, including the success rate of the project, including where youth have been placed and the recidivist rate.

Origin

(April 27, 2012) Letter from the Budget Committee

Summary

The purpose of this report is to seek approval from City Council to receive a federal project contribution from the Government of Canada's Youth Gang Prevention Fund for an amount of up to $1,343,215.00 to implement a one year youth gang intervention program in the communities of Dorset Park, Rockcliffe-Smythe and Weston-Mt Dennis.

 

In addition, this report advises the Budget Committee of the need to amend the 2012 Approved Operating Budget for Social Development and Finance Administration (SDFA) to reflect an increase of $928,810.00 gross ($0 net) in subsidy from the Government of Canada's Youth Gang Prevention Fund. Concurrently, this report advises that $414,405.00 in subsidy from Canada's Youth Gang Prevention Fund will be included in the program's 2013 Operating Budget Submission, reflecting the twelve month term of this grant.

 

Due to a unique opportunity to secure program funding from Public Safety Canada's Youth Gang Prevention Fund, the City of Toronto can accelerate plans to undertake a one year project to identify and enhance the City’s engagement models, program models and service coordination models supporting Toronto’s youth at high-risk of gang attachment.  This project will actively engage youth at high-risk of gang attachment and work with City service providers to identify and integrate effective supports for such youth, their families and City program staff working with higher-risk youth.  This project builds upon the learnings out of the City's recently concluded Prevention-Intervention Toronto youth gang diversion pilot project.
