1 9.2-1 REPORT Meeting Date: Regional Council For Information DATE: November 10, 2015 REPORT TITLE: REGION OF PEEL GOODS MOVEMENT STRATEGIC PLAN STATUS UPDATE FROM: Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works OBJECTIVE To provide an update on the progress of the Peel Goods Movement Task Force and the Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan. REPORT HIGHLIGHTS In 2009, Regional Council established the Peel Goods Movement Task Force (Task Force) which is comprised of public and private stakeholders. In 2012, Regional Council approved the Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan with 23 action items to be prioritized over five years. The Task Force has been meeting regularly to advance progress in completing the action items. The tasks identified in 20 of the 23 action items have been substantially completed. These action items are now being operationalized and work will be ongoing to implement them. The remaining three action items have been initiated, and will be completed by the end of A Long-Term Goods Movement Strategy and update to the 5-year Goods Movement Strategic Plan has been initiated to ensure the vision for efficient goods movement is sustained into the long-term future. DISCUSSION 1. Background Peel Region is one of Canada s most important multimodal goods movement hubs. Peel s central location within Canada s wealthiest consumer market and its proximity to the Toronto Pearson International Airport, a variety of 400-series highways and two intermodal rail/truck facilities make it a significant attractor for goods movement activity in the Greater Golden Horseshoe area. The safe and efficient movement of goods is vital to Peel s economy. The Ministry of Transportation s Commercial Vehicle Survey projected that on an average day in Peel, over 68,000 commercial vehicles with a total commodity value of $1.8 billion travel to, from or through the Region. It is also estimated that in 2014, goods movement-related industry

2 9.2-2 PEEL GOODS MOVEMENT STRATEGIC PLAN STATUS UPDATE contributed $49 billion to the economy, which is 48% of Peel s total Gross Domestic Product (GDP) generated and 21% of all goods movement-related GDP in Ontario. It is projected that the goods movement-related GDP in Peel will continue to increase to almost $60 billion in In addition to GDP, Peel has a significant number of jobs related to goods movement with approximately 43% of jobs the Region related to the goods movement supply chain. By comparison, the rest of Ontario and Canada each have about 27% goods movement-related jobs. The movement of both goods and people within and through Peel is becoming increasingly affected by rising levels of congestion. Peel has long recognized that goods movement businesses are a significant contributor to Peel s economy and in 2003, a formal goods movement program was initiated. In 2009, Regional Council established the Peel Goods Movement Task Force (Task Force) to recognize goods movement as a priority in Peel. 2. Peel Goods Movement Task Force The Task Force was established in 2009 to bring together key stakeholders from private and public sector companies and agencies that have an interest in the efficient movement of goods. The mission of the Task Force is to support businesses with a transportation system that moves goods and delivers services safely, quickly and efficiently, maximizes economic opportunities and reduces the associated environmental and community impacts. a) Peel Goods Movement Task Force Membership As per the Task Force Terms of Reference, its membership consists of the Regional Chair, three Peel Regional Councilors (one each from the City of Mississauga, the City of Brampton, and the Town of Caledon). Under Regional Council Resolution , Regional Chair Dale (ex-officio) and Regional Councilors Crombie, Medeiros, and Thompson have been appointed to the Task Force for a term ending November 30, 2018, or until their successors are appointed by Regional Council. The Task Force also includes various public sector and private sector members. b) Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan In 2012, the Task Force members and the Technical Working Group (including area municipal staff) developed the Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan ( Strategic Plan ). Within the Strategic Plan, the Task Force identified an Action Plan of 23 actions to improve how goods are moved within and through Peel Region. The actions were prioritized over a five-year period and have been categorized into four Strategic Directions: 1. Pursue Infrastructure Improvements; 2. Partnership, Communication and Advocacy; 3. Systems Optimization of Existing Infrastructure; and 4. Planning and Forecasting. By recommendation of the Task Force, three subcommittees were established for each of the Strategic Directions. Strategic Directions one and three were combined for - 2 -

8 9.2-8 PEEL STRATEGIC GOODS MOVEMENT PLAN ( ): 2015 STATUS UPDATE GOODS MOVEMENT IN PEEL Within Canada, the Region of Peel hosts the largest, most intense cluster of freight distribution and logistics industries, which are located within a one-day drive to more than 135 million Canadian and American consumers. Peel is home to: Toronto Pearson International Airport, Canada s largest and busiest airport by freight and passenger volume Seven 400-series highways, and a large network of arterial roads The CN intermodal rail/truck facility (and adjacent CP intermodal in Vaughan). Two major railway lines (Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railway) Peel's central geographic location results in a large number of goods movement trips passing through the Region annually. Impacting the movement of goods is the fact that the Region is facing, and will continue to face, strong growth related pressures.

9 9.2-9 Peel Goods Movement Strategic Plan ( ): 2015 Status Update Region of Peel GOODS MOVEMENT AND THE ECONOMY Peel s central location within Canada s wealthiest consumer market, and the fact that it contains over 86,600 businesses, has positioned it not only as an economic hub, but also as a major goods movement hub in Canada. Peel's goods movement systems are a cornerstone and key enabler of the Region's economy. Approximately 44% of the jobs in Peel are related to the goods movement supply chain (e.g. manufacturing, transportation/warehousing, wholesale trade, construction, agriculture and mining/quarrying). To maintain its competitive edge the Region must ensure the efficient movement of goods through and within it to attract industry and investments. 8.7% 21.1% $646B $231B $49B DID YOU KNOW? In 2014, on an average day, over 68,000 commercial vehicles had origins in, destinations in or passed through Peel Region with a commodity value of $1.8 billion. Source: Ministry of Transportation, 2012 CVS WHAT IS THE PEEL GOODS MOVEMENT PROGRAM? There are two (2) major goals of the Peel Goods Movement Program: 1. Support and influence sustainable transportation systems to ensure that goods are transported in an efficient and timely manner. 2. Optimize the use of existing infrastructure and capacity, and minimize adverse environmental, social and economic impacts caused by goods movement transportation. THE PEEL GOODS MOVEMENT TASK FORCE In April 2009, the Peel Goods Movement Task Force was established by Peel Regional Council in recognition of the importance of goods movement to Peel. There was a need for the private and public sector interests involved in goods movement to work together to address existing and future challenges and opportunities. The mandate of the Peel Goods Movement Task Force is as follows: To develop a common vision for goods movement in the Peel area; To provide a forum to bring together key public and private sector stakeholders to guide future improvements to the goods movement system, to facilitate the exchange of information and to develop common messages on issues affecting goods movement; To monitor, review and provide input and feedback to regional, provincial and federal initiatives related to goods movement; and Source: WSP/PB,
