Shelley's New Responsibilities in 2005

Toronto Film Board

I have been named to Mayor Miller's Toronto Film Board. This group will work with the film industry to strengthen its competitiveness and preserve Toronto as a major employer in the film industry. The group will meet in January.

Youth Working Group

I have also been asked to chair the Youth Working Group as part of Mayor Miller's Roundtable on Education, Children and Youth. The dominant force on the Working Group is the youth membership. Together with key adults in the youth services community, they will build a proposal for a Toronto Civic Youth Strategy.

Hospitability Task Force

Our hotel, restaurant and food services industry is the largest city employer. This year, I have chaired council's task force on the Hospitability Workers' Resource Centre. I am very encouraged by the co-operative work by both employers and employees as they try to make Toronto's food industry more competitive and customer friendly.
