Power Job aims is to place 100% of students looking for summer jobs with summer jobs. It is not only about youth earning money but more importantly gaining experience. Learning new skills boosts self esteem which is exactly what our youth need. Our team will coach all students on how to be successful employees during their summer work. We also look to get feedback from employers during and at the end of the summer. What we now need are local companies willing to hire. Once we know of a company’s needs, we will provide them with three resumes with youth suitable to the job.

Watermain and sewer replacement continues on
My office is in regular contact with the Project Engineer and we are making every effort to expedite the work. Unfortunately, Varcon and Comer are working off service information that is over 100 years old. As a result the locations of the sanitary services have to be field verified and for many locations there are multiple service connections, not all of which are active. For each location the contractors have to go into the buildings and determine where the discharge comes out to determine which services are live and therefore need to be replaced.
Varcon has 4 crews working right now and at points have split one crew into two, making five crews to speed up the servicing.
Servicing will be completed from

This resource was published December 2009 by the Toronto Public Health as part of a fact sheet series to help service providers inform pregnant women and families about the most harmful environmental substances and how they may affect the fetus, infants and young children. The series includes numerous tips for pregnant women and families to take action to reduce exposure to lead and mercury and the chemicals found in pesticides, cleaning products, plastics, paint, personal care products and the air.

City Planning is undertaking an Avenues and Mid-Rise Buildings Study (authorized by Council 2007) which is intended to help urbanize our Avenues. This study builds on and learns from Avenue Studies already completed, and will identify the historic, cultural and built form characteristics of Avenues not yet studied. It is generating Performance Standards which will inform new zoning and design guidelines for mid-rise buildings.
The Study Area is outlined in the attached map. It generally includes all Avenues that have not yet been studied. Avenues that are part of a Secondary Plan area or have been subject to a completed or ongoing Avenue Study, Revitalization Study or Planning Study are not included.
Four public consultation meetings will be held – one in each of the districts. Please see the attached flyer for dates and times.
