Origin

(April 20, 2022) Report from the Deputy City Manager, Community and Social Services

Summary

In May 2021, City Council directed the incorporation of Toronto Seniors Housing Corporation (TSHC) as well as the adoption of a shareholder direction and recruitment of a Chief Corporate Officer and Transition Lead. Council also provided principles to guide negotiations between TSHC and Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) for the transition of operations.

 

This report recommends a path forward through the transitional period in 2022 and includes the following: 

 

1. Request for the allocation of one-time funding from the City of Toronto for 2022 transitional costs;

2. Report back on the activities of the Senior Tenant Advisory Committee (STAC) as directed by MM38.51;

3. Report back on the newly appointed CEO of TSHC and the Board-approved executive compensation policy; and

4. Update on key activities related to the upcoming transition of operations from TCHC,

 

With approval of the recommendations in this report, TSHC will be well positioned to successfully take on the operations and responsibility for the seniors housing portfolio.
