Note:

Regional Councillor Heath gave notice at the June 29, 2017 Council meeting of his intention to bring forward the following motion on this item:

“WHEREAS on December 30, 2016 the Province proclaimed into force Section 1.2 of the Retail Business Holidays Act (RBHA) allowing municipalities to choose to be exempt from the application of the RBHA; and,

WHEREAS Council may exempt The Regional Municipality of York (the Region) from the requirements of the RBHA by implementing the provisions of Section 1.2 by bylaw; and,

WHEREAS Section 1.2 of the RBHA requires that Council must first enact a bylaw under Section 148(3) of the Municipal Act, 2001 establishing its own criteria governing retail business closings on statutory holidays including the designation of specific closure dates; and,

WHEREAS implementation of the provisions of Section 1.2 of the RBHA would allow Council to establish common criteria, beyond tourism, to govern retail business closing on statutory holidays; and,

WHEREAS Council has approved 31 exemptions under the RBHA for a variety of holidays which has created inconsistency in retail business openings in the Region; and,

WHEREAS three lower-tier municipalities in the Region have exemptions covering their entire municipalities;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that a bylaw be enacted pursuant to section 1.2 of the RBHA to exempt the Region from the RBHA; and,

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a bylaw be enacted pursuant to section 148(3) of the Municipal Act, 2001 to establish requirements for retail holiday closings in the Region; and,

BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that the bylaw provide that all businesses in the Region, for which closing under the RBHA is applicable, be required to close on Christmas and Easter Sunday only.”
