The City of Timmins Environmental Services department wishes to advise the Public of a watermain break affecting water quality for all areas of Porcupine East of the traffic lights at the Ferguson Rd and Hwy 101 East intersection.

  • All homes and businesses in the affected area could see coloured water and lower than normal water pressures.

  • West Bound lanes will be reduced to one lane for a portion of the highway near the Ruth St intersection.

  • Ruth St from Hwy 101 to Division St and Young St from Rekela St to Florence St will be without water during the repairs.

  • We estimate the repairs to be complete by Friday Nov 15 2019

Homeowners in that area may experience brown or rust-coloured water during the repairs. It is recommended not to drink or wash laundry with the discoloured water. While it is not harmful to your health, it can stain laundry. Should this occur, it is advised to turn on the COLD water tap closest to the source (usually your laundry tub tap) and let it run for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the water colour has returned to normal.

City staff would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during this work.

November 5, 2019 - The Province made legislative changes to the Police Services Act, 1990 requiring that communities develop and enact a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan by January 1, 2021.

This legislation was introduced by the Province in recognition of the changing nature of our society and the evolution of the Police role in providing a safe environment in this dynamic environment. This role includes all the traditional elements of Policing but integrates to a greater degree the partnerships of the Police within the community and between the community partners themselves.

“In Timmins we are seeing changes in our community that are making people feel less safe – the growing opioid problem, street homelessness and increasing levels of mental health issues,” stated Mayor George Pirie. “The focus of the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan will be to engage the community in taking direct action to make Timmins a safer and healthier community. In response to the legislative changes and in complete recognition of the urgency to begin this process within our community, Timmins City Council on October 22, 2019 enlisted the services of Trimeda Consulting Inc. to prepare, coordinate and assist in the development and implementation of the Timmins Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. The Trimeda Team and its multi-sector collaborators will be working with community members over the next year towards to this end.”

Collaborators, who form the advisory committee, will be planning various stakeholder engagement sessions and surveys throughout the development process.

“A Community Safety and Well-Being Plan, by definition, has to be owned by all citizens of Timmins,” explained Mayor Pirie. “It has to be a working, living, evolving plan with defined objectives and actionable on the ground. Siloes will be broken down as we move from being reactionary in nature to a system which is focused on up-stream early preventative multi-sector collaborative initiatives to make our city a safe and healthy place to live for all our citizens.

Trimeda President Melanie Verreault went on to explain the four main areas that must be addressed in order to ensure the plan will be as efficient and effective as possible”
1- Social development – Promoting and maintaining community safety and well-being
2- Prevention – Proactively reducing identified risks
3- Risk intervention – Mitigating elevated risk situations
4- Incident response – Immediate response to urgent incident
A number of initiatives have already been implemented or are in the process of being implemented that fit well into the scope of this plan. This includes the partnership between the Porcupine Health Unit (PHU), the City of Timmins, Living Space, Timmins Police Service and the Downtown Timmins BIA, which has seen the development of a Central Sharp Reporting Process. The public can now call 705-531-7233 or email communityfeedback@livingspacehub.org to notify outreach workers of the location where the sharps were found. The sharps will be picked up and disposed of safely and appropriately by Living Space or PHU outreach workers. Living Space and PHU have also been working to increase outreach services in the community and encourage needle safety.

Background

New legislative amendments to the Police Services Act mandate that every municipal council has to prepare and adopt a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan. This requirement came into effect January 1, 2019, and municipalities have two years from that date to prepare and adopt a plan. In the preparation of that plan, the establishment of a multi-sectoral advisory committee is required with representatives from the following sectors: 

• Health and Mental Health Services
• Educational Services
• Community and Social Services
• Community and Social Services to Children or Youth
• Custodial Services to Children or Youth
• Municipal Council Member or Municipal Employee
• Police Service Board or Detachment Commander

It is also required that consultation with the advisory committee would include outreach to members of the public including youth and members of racialized groups.

The Community Safety and Well-Being Plan must deliver on the following objectives:
• to identify priority risk factors (e.g. systemic discrimination, social factors that contribute to crime, victimization addiction, drug overdose and suicide)
• identifying strategies to reduce the potential risk factors (e.g. developing new services, changing or coordinating existing services)
• setting measurable outcomes

The Community Safety and Well-Being Plan must be published 30 days after the plan is adopted online, in print, for review by anyone who requests it, and in any other form determined by the municipality. Additional regulations prescribing requirements related to monitoring, evaluating, reporting and plan review will be outlined at a later date by government.

The Community Safety and Well-Being Planning Framework is as follows:
CSWBP Framework

It is crucial for all members involved in the planning process to understand the following four areas to ensure local plans are as efficient and effective as possible in making communities safer and healthier:
• social development
• prevention
• risk intervention, and
• incident response.

The province has identified the following as critical success factors for a Community Safety and Well-Being Plan:
• strength-based leveraging existing resources, programs and services in the community
• risk-focused planning rather and incident-driven action
• awareness and understanding to ensure all community members understand the benefit of, and the role in, this planning process
• high level commitment is required from individuals of influence to champion this cause
• effective partnerships to create meaningful integrated relationships across multiple sectors
• evidence and evaluation to use research and data to inform the planning process
• cultural responsiveness to effectively interact with, and respond to the needs of diverse groups of people within the community.

November 8,2019 - The flags at City of Timmins-owned buildings will be flying at half-mast in honour of Remembrance Day on Monday, November 11.

According to legion.ca: “The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen. Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve….Royal Canadian Legion members take pride in organizing Remembrance Day Ceremonies in over 1,400 Branches across Canada and abroad. Through each Branch, the Legion continues the traditions of Remembrance so that Canada ‘never forgets.’”
