(VIDEO) Tec-We-Gwill Celebrates 75 years

(March 30, 2022) The Tec-We-Gwill Women’s Institute is celebrating 75 years of service.  Established in 1947, the Bradford-based branch of the Federated Women's Institute of Ontario provides social and educational resources for local women while participating in fundraising and charitable events in the community.

Over the years, members have contributed hours of volunteer time to improve the lives of South Simcoe County families, children and seniors, as well as led campaigns to raise funds for causes like the South Simcoe 4H, Simcoe Manor and the fight against breast cancer. 

Tec-We-Gwill is one of 220 branches of the Federated Women's Institutes of Ontario.  The provincial organization is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. 

“Congratulations to the FWIO and Tec-We-Gwill on their many achievements and the excellent work they do,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson.  You can watch his statement in the Legislature here.

“I am proud whenever a student from my riding is chosen to be a legislative page,” said Simcoe Grey MPP Jim Wilson.  “Like Callum, these are outgoing, high-achieving, community-involved students who have demonstrated responsibility and leadership.”

The page program has existed since Confederation, and is open to grade 7 and 8 students with a minimum academic average of 80 percent. They are recommended by their school principals.

“It is an honour to be a page, and it is so much more than just carrying messages and running errands for Members as they carry out the province’s business,” said Mr. Wilson. 

During their term, pages experience the provincial legislature in action and forge new lifelong friendships with peers from all over Ontario.  They have the opportunity to meet key parliamentary officials and political figures while learning first-hand about the legislative process. When not at work in the legislature the students attend classes under the direction of a certified Ontario teacher.

“I want to thank Callum for serving as a page,” said MPP Wilson.  “And I encourage other young prospective leaders in Simcoe-Grey to consider applying for future opportunities to participate in this unique and rewarding program,” he added.

Ontario Investing in Additional Supports for People Experiencing Homelessness in Simcoe County

(March 24, 2022) The Ontario government is investing an additional $25 million annually in a new Homelessness Prevention Program to help more people experiencing or at risk of homelessness find the right housing services and other supports. The new program will simplify and streamline operations so municipal service managers can spend less time on paperwork and more time working with their clients to help find housing and other supports and help those at-risk of homelessness stay in their homes. The additional funding brings Ontario’s total yearly investment in the program to close to $464 million - almost half a billion dollars.

This includes a 2022-23 investment of $11,352,900.00 for Simcoe County homelessness initiatives, up from the $10.4 million provided last year under three separate programs. 

“Too often well-meaning government programs disappoint because they come wrapped up in bureaucracy and red tape,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson.  “Ontario’s new Homelessness Prevention Program, and the additional funding that comes with it, will address a growing social challenge in our communities and help ensure that everyone in Simcoe County has a safe place to call home.”

“Our government inherited a homelessness prevention system administered through several different government programs that was underfunded, fragmented and overly complex,” said Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “With Ontario’s new Homelessness Prevention Program, we are simplifying the delivery of services and increasing funding so our municipal partners can spend more time focusing on providing vulnerable Ontarians with the supports they need to stay in their homes or get the housing they need.”

The Homelessness Prevention Program launching on April 1, 2022, combines three programs: Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative, Home for Good, and the Strong Communities Rent Supplement Program. It will give service managers more flexibility to target funding where it is needed the most and allow for greater financial accountability by measuring service managers’ progress in reducing and preventing homelessness in their communities.

Access to this funding will be based on having in place a By-Name List that meets the provincial requirements and contains detailed, up-to-date information from individuals experiencing homelessness to help connect them to local supports.

The government is also investing an additional $6.7 million in the Indigenous Supportive Housing Program, bringing the total annual investment to $30 million.

The shortage of housing supply impacts all Ontarians, no matter their background or budget. The province’s ongoing work to increase the supply of market housing complements historic investments to increase the supply of supportive and affordable housing for the most vulnerable. As part of the consultations through the Community Housing Renewal Strategy, the government is working with service managers and housing providers to make community housing more efficient and sustainable – helping to protect essential community housing stock and ensure Ontario’s most vulnerable people remain housed.

QUICK FACTS

  • The new investments can be used to fund the operation of supportive housing units created through the province’s $1 billion Social Services Relief Fund (SSRF) – one of the biggest investments the province has made in affordable housing and homelessness supports in Ontario’s history. Thanks to Ontario’s SSRF, the government is helping to create approximately 1,200 new supportive housing units.

  • HPP is a direct response to feedback from the 2020-21 Supportive Housing Consultation. The changes made through the creation of the new program address recommendations in the Auditor General’s 2021 value-for-money audit on homelessness.

 

Bullying has no place in our community

Pink Shirt Day photo COllingwood.jpg WEBSITE(February 23, 2022) Communities around the world recognize Pink Shirt Day on the last Wednesday of February each year.  In Collingwood the occasion to take a stand against bullying is marked by an anti-bullying flag-raising at the Public Library.  The annual event is spear-headed by Trevor Henson, a founding member of Collingwood’s anti-bullying club.  


“Mistreatment, harassment and victimization have no place anywhere in our society, and it must not be tolerated anywhere, anytime,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson. “We must end this disturbing problem and work every day to create a more kind and inclusive world where everyone is respectful and accepting of others, regardless of differences.” 


Victims of bullying need to know that they are not alone, and that there is help and support available to them. Participating in Pink Shirt Day sends a strong message that others care.  


MPP Wilson encourages everyone to listen Trevor Henson’s message to practice kindness, acceptance and respect for one another, to stand up against bullying and to help build a more caring, compassionate and inclusive community. 

 

Ontario Improving Schools in Simcoe County - Government to Replace Banting Memorial High School; Renovate Tecumseth Beeton Elementary School

(January 24, 2022) The Ontario government is investing $42.5 million in the Simcoe County District School Board to build a new replacement for the aging Banting Memorial High School in Alliston and a two room child care centre renovation at Tecumseth Beeton Elementary School in Beeton. This investment, announced by Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education is part of the Ford government’s commitment to supporting affordable and accessible child care in communities across the province.

Once complete, the new Banting Memorial High School will have 1288 secondary school spaces and one infant, one toddler and one preschool room, for a total of 49 licensed spaces.  The replacement school will be located in Alliston at a site to be acquired.

Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson welcomed today’s news saying, “This announcement goes a long way towards shortening my to-do list.  Much of the credit and thanks for the new high school belongs to SCDSB trustee Sarah Beitz who never gave up on the dream for a new modern facility.  Thanks must also go to the many people who signed petitions and wrote letters of support over the past decade.”

I have fond memories of my years at Banting,” said Mr. Wilson.  “My first political office was when I was elected Prime Minister of the school's model parliament and I went on to serve two years as Student Council President,” he added. 

The child care centre renovation at Tecumseth Beeton Elementary School on Patterson Street in Beeton will have one toddler and one preschool room, for a total of 39 licensed spaces. 

“South Simcoe County is one of the fastest growing regions in Ontario,” said MPP Wilson.  “Thank you to Minister Lecce and Premier Ford for their commitment to our youth and to a bright future for our community.”

Season's Greetings from your MPP Jim Wilson

(December 13, 2021) As the holidays approach I want to commend everyone in Simcoe-Grey for their strength and patience through what has been another stressful pandemic year. 

 Twelve months ago, I had thought COVID-19 was nearing an end.  Unfortunately, despite lock-downs, social distancing and vaccines we have had to endure third and fourth waves of the virus and, more recently, a new variant.  Despite these disappointments the world is slowly getting back to normal. 

 

While it is clear that COVID will be with us in one form or another for some time to come, we are beginning to enjoy near normal lives.  Hospitalizations are down, children are back in school and most sectors of the economy are bouncing back. 

 

We are moving in the right direction.  We should be thankful for the progress we have made, and resolve to stay the course.  Let’s continue to heed the advice of medical experts, follow public health guidelines and get vaccinated.  We will get through this.

 

Simcoe-Grey is fortunate to have enjoyed its share of good news in 2021.  Collingwood General and Marine Hospital received the go-ahead and funding to move forward with planning and design of an expanded and upgraded building.  I am confident that Stevenson Memorial will soon hear similar good news. 

 

After a years-long battle, new life-altering medications for Cystic Fibrosis patients are now being made available under Ontario’s publically funded drug program.  CF families in our area deserve credit for leading the fight. 

 

And, we were all delighted to welcome Alliston native Deanne Rose home this summer to celebrate her role in winning Women’s Soccer Gold at the Tokyo Olympics.  We can be proud knowing that our region produces such world-class talent as Deanne.  

 

COVID aside, we’ve had a good year.  As you celebrate the Birth of Christ, remember our greatest gifts are family and friends.  Make time to let those closest to you know that they are loved and appreciated. 

 

Please accept my best wishes for a very happy holiday season and a healthy, peaceful and prosperous New Year.

 

Merry Christmas.

 

Tis' the Season

Drysdale xmas tree 2017 WEBSITE

(November 29, 2021) The Christmas season is upon us.  And, for those who celebrate, many will be looking to bring home and decorate a festive tree. 

 

In 2015 Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to sponsor the Christmas Tree Day Act to support the important industry which produces Christmas trees.  Since then, Christmas Tree Day occurs in Ontario on the first Saturday of December every year. 

 

“Real trees have been an essential part of our Christmas celebrations for generations,” said Mr. Wilson. “By purchasing a tree from one of the many growers in our region, we support a vital industry which employs thousands of workers,” he added.    

 

There are dozens of growers in Simcoe-Grey who offer activities for people young and old who want to enjoy the season with family and friends while selecting a fresh cut-your-own or pre-cut tree.  Many of the farms offer activities ranging from visits with Santa and seasonal beverages, to horse- or tractor-drawn wagon rides.  

 

Some of the popular places you can visit in our area include: the Drysdale Tree Farm and Evergreen Store on County Rd. 56 in Egbert, Jingle Bell’s U-Cut on County Rd. 124 in Collingwood and Quesnel Forest Christmas Tree Farm, also on County Rd. 124.

 

Start the holiday season by purchasing a locally grown tree this upcoming Christmas Tree Day, Saturday, December 4th.

Simcoe.com article - Lack of child care and affordable housing biggest barriers to solving labour crisis: Simcoe-Grey MPP

(November 23, 2021) Simcoe.com is doing a great job in its series highlighting the challenges of trying to solve Ontario’s labour crisis.  Brad Pritchard of the Alliston Herald captured some of my thoughts in a recent interview.  Read his article below.

 

 

Lack of child care and affordable housing biggest barriers to solving labour crisis: Simcoe-Grey MPP

He wants task force to study labour crisis, come up with strategies, solutions

Brad Pritchard

Alliston Herald

Monday, November 22, 2021

Hardly a day goes by without someone talking about the challenges facing the labour market in Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson’s offices.

Wilson, who was first elected in 1990, said the issue started to become heavily debated about a decade into his career.

“In the last two decades, we’ve been discussing this issue ad nauseum,” he said.

Wilson said there are several factors making it difficult for companies to find and keep workers, and for job seekers to find decent positions.

He said the lack of child care and affordable housing are the biggest barriers.

While a $10-per-day child-care program has been promised by the federal government, the province has not signed on to the deal yet, due to a funding dispute.

Over the years, Wilson’s had conversations with manufacturing companies which have had to source workers who live up to two hours away. He said local health-care facilities and the tourism sector, particularly the resorts in the north end of the riding, also rely on employees from the Greater Toronto Area.

“We need the workers, and they have to live somewhere,” he said.

Mike MacEachern, executive director of FOCUS Employment Services in Alliston and Angus, said people are considering a number of factors when deciding to apply for a position: flexible hours, a predictable schedule, whether it is in-person or work-from home, and if the employer offers a safe place to work.

He said people also consider their long-term career goals and if they can grow in a position.

While offering higher pay can be a great incentive, he said it's not a guarantee.

"Letting the job seeker know as much detail about the job and the expectations up front has proven a successful strategy to find the right employee," he said.

Martin Kuzma, CEO of Nottawasaga Futures and NT Temps, said the issue is complex and it's hard to come up with a clear solution.

He said more immigration might help fill vacancies, and perhaps incentives need to be created to make it more attractive for people to work in their home communities, instead of commuting to the GTA.

“It all comes down to policies,” he said.

Wilson said other issues contributing to the labour shortage include low wages, lack of benefits and workers looking for flexible hours. He said challenges remain for getting young people interested in the skilled trades. He also cited people having education that doesn’t match the types of jobs available, and barriers for immigrants finding work.

He pointed out that many of these problems existed before the pandemic.

Wilson said more people will re-enter the workforce “out of necessity” now the government wage support programs have wound down. He said the minimum wage bump to $15 per hour, starting in January, might provide further incentive.

Wilson said the pandemic has prevented policy-makers from interacting with the unemployed, which is why he wants the province to create an all-party task force to study the current workforce, the post pandemic labour market, and propose solutions.

“I think the government has been behind, in its response to the pandemic, because we haven’t been able to reach these people to find out what makes them tick,” he said.

He said there are many programs out there that can help people find work and get into the skilled trades, but the government doesn’t do enough to promote them.

Wilson said local employment agencies, like FOCUS and TRACKS in Collingwood, “do a great job” of helping people access training programs and resources, but would benefit from more stable government support instead of “piecemeal” grants.

“Clearly what we’ve been doing isn’t good enough,” he said.

 

Simcoe-Grey Grocers Among Ontario’s Best; “Congratulations,” says MPP Wilson

Sobeys angus 2021 photo WEBSITEsobeys collingwood 2021 photo WEBSITENovember 12, 2021 – Sobeys Collingwood and Sobeys Angus are among 60 grocery stores in the province recognized this year for their innovative promotion of fresh Ontario food.  Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was pleased to visit both outlets to offer congratulations, and present them with Gold Foodland Ontario Retailer Award plaques. 

 

The Foodland Ontario Awards program is the province’s premier competition recognizing excellence in the display and promotion of Ontario foods.  It is co-sponsored by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs in partnership with a number of industry organizations.

 

“Grocers are key to ensuring that customers are aware of locally grown food in their stores and that they choose to purchase it,” said Mr. Wilson.  “Buying local food supports a strong agri-food sector that sustains us, boosts our economy, and helps create good jobs across our region,” he added. 

 

The Gold category – awarded to the Angus and Collingwood stores – is based on the number of non-produce items cross-merchandised with Ontario agricultural commodities, compatibility of the products, and appropriate signage. 

 

Presenting the awards, MPP Wilson said to the store employees, "Thank you for taking pride in building creative and innovative displays that encourage shoppers to take home the good things that grow in Ontario."

 

Ontario is home to almost 46,900 farms that grow more than 200 agricultural products. The sector contributes $47.7 billion to the province’s GDP and employs over 837,000 people – about one in every 10 jobs in Ontario.

 

Included in the photo in Collingwood is Pauline Mussleman, Darlene Ferguson, Tammy Austin, Anna Miller and Kevin Major. In the picture in Angus is Shirley Van Dusen, Christine Wodchis and Paul Jutras.
