Provincial Advocacy Victory Log

• Advocated for implementation of on-site vaccination clinics at some of Brampton’s largest employers, a measure that reduced barriers to vaccination for front-line workers
• Successfully called for the introduction of temporary paid sick leave through the provincial government, so that workers who are experiencing symptoms can stay home without additional cost to their employer
• Pushed for prioritization of COVID-19 vaccine second dose allocation and delivery to Peel, recognizing our large share of frontline workers and that our region has been a hotspot with COVID caseloads disproportionately large for our population
• First mover on calls for implementing a proof-of-vaccination requirement for many higher-risk settings, a critical step for boosting consumer confidence, keeping workplaces safe for employees and allowing businesses to remain open and avoid        widespread closures
• Scored key wins in advocacy outlined in the 2021 provincial budget: 1) Allocations to increase capacity along the Innovation Corridor route from Waterloo Region Toronto, right through Brampton, as part of a $61.6 billion public transit commitment over 10 years; 2) Commitment to a new in-patient wing at Peel Memorial Hospital; 3) Financial support for Ryerson University in planning towards opening a new institute of medical education in Brampton
• Supported expanding the deployment of rapid antigen testing to workforces, a move that has allowed workplaces to remain open while better protecting employee health
