A statement from York Region Chairman and CEO Wayne Emmerson on provincial announcement of regional governments review

Chairment Statement Picture

York Regional Council appreciates strengthening Regional Government is a priority for the Ontario government and one they campaigned on last year. This is consistent with our Council’s commitment to continuous improvement and meeting the changing needs of our growing communities.

In discussions with the Premier and Minister, we are supportive of this review. We look forward to the opportunity to work with our provincial partners to explore ways to optimize service delivery and reduce costs. Our input in determining what is working well in our current model and what may be improved will be critical to this process.

As we too undergo our own Municipal Comprehensive Review, we have a responsibility to ensure we maintain a clear perspective focused on the priorities that matter most to our communities.

Our goal remains the same; help ensure we are building healthy and complete neighbourhoods where residents of all abilities and ages can live, work, play and thrive.
