Decision Advice and Other Information

The Chief Executive Officer gave an overview of the report (April 12, 2019) from the Chief Executive Officer, Toronto Atmospheric Fund.

Origin
(April 12, 2019) Report from the Chief Executive Officer
Summary

In Budget 2019, the federal government committed $183 million to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) Green Municipal Fund (GMF) to capitalize Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3) to “provide municipalities and non-profit community organizations with financing and grants to retrofit and improve the energy efficiency of large community buildings as well as community pilot and demonstration projects in Canadian municipalities, both large and small. FCM and Low Carbon Cities Canada Initiatives will create a network across Canada that will support local community actions to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions”. This includes $40 million for Toronto Atmospheric Fund (TAF), with the balance to six other centres across the country modelled on TAF. 

 

TAF’s mandate, geographic focus and core governance remains the same, with this federal contribution enhancing TAF’s endowment and therefore TAF’s capacity to invest in and accelerate low-carbon solutions in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GHTA). TAF and the other centres will contribute to and have a role in steering the national coordinating office to be housed within GMF which will support accountability, provide some shared services, and undertake knowledge-transfer to leverage the work of all the centres.    

 

This report sets in motion the actions required for TAF and the City of Toronto to negotiate and approve a contribution agreement with GMF and to develop a strategy for deployment of the new endowment in keeping with TAF’s investment policy and target portfolio. It also proposes, if necessary, ‘borrowing’ funds from the Toronto endowment to cover costs of initiating programming in 2020 which would be reimbursed once the federal endowment generates revenues and no later than December 31, 2021.

TA2.5

ACTION 

Adopted 

 

 

Appointments to the Toronto Atmospheric Fund Board of Directors

Board Decision

The Board of Directors of the Toronto Atmospheric Fund:

 

1.  Requested, via the City Manager, that City Council increase the composition of the Board of Directors of the Toronto Atmospheric Fund by adding one public member.

 

2.  Requested, via the City Manager, that:

 

a.  The Staff Nominating Panel recommend at least one public member who is a non-resident of Toronto and resides in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) for appointment to the Board of Directors of the Toronto Atmospheric Fund;

 

b.  City Council waive the Toronto residency criteria for at least one public member of the Board of Directors of the Toronto Atmospheric Fund in order to appoint a non-resident to the Board.

Origin
(April 12, 2019) Report from the Chief Executive Officer
Summary

To bring the Board membership to 11 members, as is specified in the  Toronto Atmospheric Fund (TAF) Relationship Framework with the City of Toronto, it is recommended that the composition be amended to eight citizen members and three Councillors.

 

Since Toronto Atmospheric Fund (TAF) now supports and invests in initiatives that reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton area (GTHA) leveraging endowments from the City of Toronto and Province of Ontario, TAF would benefit from Board-level expertise and perspectives from individuals who live outside the City of Toronto.  Appointment of at least one public member who is a non-resident of Toronto and resides in the GTHA is recommended.

Origin
(April 12, 2019) Report from the Chief Executive Officer
Summary

Amendment of Toronto Atmospheric Fund's (TAF) Purchasing Policy is recommended including a) adjustment of purchasing thresholds for inflation, b) allowing TAF to issue a Request for Proposals for purchases that fall below the threshold for a formal procurement process through the City of Toronto Purchasing and Materials Management Division (PMMD) but are not appropriate for an informal call for quotations where selection is strictly price-driven, and c) several housekeeping matters.
