Introducing Peel Region to the Transition Board

A deep dive into the magnitude, scale and complexity of Peel.

BRAMPTON, ON (September 14, 2023) – Today, Peel Region updated Regional Council on how it has been onboarding the Transition Board in a report, Bill 112 - Update September 2023. The Transition Board was appointed on July 5, 2023, by the provincial government to provide recommendations to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing on a range of restructuring matters related to the dissolution of Peel.

Peel developed a comprehensive onboarding package with several key documents for the Transition Board to help them gain a deeper understanding of Peel's critical services and make thoughtful and informed recommendations regarding the dissolution of Peel. The Council report provides links to the information shared during onboarding.

One of the documents - Introducing Peel Region, a first conversation - tells the story of Peel over the last 5 decades, its history, services, and people. The board also received an overview of the questions, concerns and anxieties expressed by Peel's 6,000 employees. Documents include:
