  1. Chair’s Remarks 

    The Chair welcomed members and guests to the Board’s first in-person meeting since the start of the pandemic. She encouraged member participation and reviewed procedures for voting and speaking during the meeting. The Chair also welcomed the Board’s newest assessors, Mr. David Lehto, who joined the Operations and Real Estate Partnerships team as Chief of University Planning, Design and Construction; and Ms Deborah Brown, Chief Administrative Officer at UTM.

    The Chair thanks Ms Susan Senese for her contributions to the Board as Interim CAO, UTM.

    The Chair also thanked members for submitting written questions prior to the meeting.
  2. Reports of the Administrative Assessors

    Scott Mabury, Vice-President, Operations and Real Estate Partnerships, provided an update on the following:

    COVID- 19
  • The University had successfully returned to in-person operations;
  • The University had announced that individuals must continue to be masked in classrooms and indoor spaces until June 30, 2022;
  • Units had the discretion about physical distancing in their areas. Physical distancing was highly recommended in designated eating areas where masks were removed; and
  • The University had paused the requirement to be fully vaccinated on May 1, 2022 with the exception of new employees who were required to upload their proof of vaccination in UCheck.

    Professor Mabury expressed his appreciation for all faculty and staff for the year of preparations.

Construction Environment/Rising Interest Rates and CPI

  • The University had faced an increasingly dynamic real estate market which had presented on-going challenges due to the (unprecedented) inflationary construction market, labour shortages, supply chain disruptions, and market volatility;
  • Material costs had continued to increase, with bids coming back 50% over expected estimates – to adjust to this highly inflationary construction market, the University had retained third-party cost consultants to provide an independent verification of projected budget and cost estimates for each capital project coming forward to governance;
  • construction logistic support had been acquired for several major projects, and program validation exercises had been conducted to minimize scope; and
  • Contractors were also being involved much sooner in project development, together with the architect so that projects were designed in accordance with market conditions. Architects would also be directed to design around more locally sourced materials. 

    Professor Mabury also reported that contractual ‘off ramps’ were now being introduced, with one being recently triggered to cease a current tender on the Academic Wood Tower project. He explained that this signaled to the market that the University would not bend blindly to market demands and would adhere to its fiduciary duty to spend funds judiciously. Professor Mabury expected the Academic Wood Tower to be resurrected some time in the future, once project estimates began to show good value. 

    Professor Mabury expressed his confidence that the University was well equipped to navigate the current market. He credited the expertise retained by the University and its responsive governance structure in helping to facilitate addressing market demands.

    The Chair thanked Professor Mabury for his remarks.  

    There were no other reports of the Administrative Assessors
  1. Annual Report: Vice-President, People Strategy, Equity and Culture, 2020-21

    The Board received the Annual Report of the Vice-President, People Strategy, Equity and Culture for information.  Professor Hannah-Moffat stated that it was the first Annual Report under the portfolio’s new name, People Strategy, Equity & Culture (PSEC), which was adopted with a new and expanded mandate in mid-2021. The Report highlighted some of the portfolio’s most impactful initiatives and offered insight into how PSEC supported the University of Toronto's diverse and talented workforce.  She emphasized that PSEC would focus its work over the next five years on shifting the institutional culture from “inclusion” to “belonging.” – with the renaming, the University was moving away from a perspective of employees as human resources. 

    As part of a presentation, Professor Hannah-Moffat reported on the following key points from the Annual Report:
  • Within the Division and across the tri-campus, the University had adjusted at a large scale to remote and hybrid work and to new ways of working in-person. PSEC was actively realizing the “future of work” and were moving forward to improve its processes and strategies rather than waiting to return to a pre-pandemic state; 
  • Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Division had played a vital role in developing and supporting a pandemic response and return-to-campus plan informed by public health and provincial guidance that prioritized the health and well-being of the U of T community. 
  • In 2021, PSEC was involved with leading a joint strategy communications group to keep the U of T community informed of pandemic-related updates and working with the Office of the Vice-President and Provost to develop an institution-wide vaccination policy;
  • The release of two seminal reports in 2021by the Anti-Black Racism Task Force (ABRTF) and Antisemitism Working Group (ASWG) respectively, had identified clear pathways to make systemic change at U of T. 
  • The University began to implement the recommendations of these reports across the Division. PSEC continued to be accountable to the 34 Calls to Action outlined in Answering the Call: Wecheehetowin. 
  • In addition, PSEC would be implementing recommendations of future reports—such as the Report of the Anti-Islamophobia Working Group—to expand inclusive practices at U of T.
  • Among other milestones, in 2021 the University launched the University Pension Plan [the “UPP”]; increased the accessibility of learning and working technologies; and found flexible and creative ways to work among its staff members and its internal and external communities; and 
  • University had come to a deeper understanding of wellness in the workplace and encouraged more open conversations about mental health and its impact on its personal and professional lives.

    She expressed her thanks to the PSEC team for their continued commitment and dedication to supporting U of T.

    In response to members’ questions and comments, Professor Hannah-Moffat noted that 2021 Annual Report: Equity, Diversity and Excellence would be presented to the University Affairs Board at their June meeting. Many of the recommendations contained the University of Toronto's Anti-Black Racism Task Force were well on their way to being implemented. The VP PSEC reported that a new, dedicated website with updates on implementation of the task force’s recommendations would be forthcoming. She also stated that the University would revisit and review the University of Toronto Statement on Prohibited Discrimination and Discriminatory Harassment – the statement had been in existence for 25 years.

    The Chair thanked Professor Hannah-Moffat for her report which was received by the Board for information.
  1. Annual Report: 2021 Employment Equity Report

    Professor Hannah-Moffat presented the Report on Employment Equity, 2021 for information.  

    Highlights of Professor Hannah-Moffat’s presentation included the following:
  • The Report covered the period of January 1st to December 31st, 2021 and contained response data from the Employment Equity Survey and applicant information from the University’s applicant tracking system;
  • The 2021 Employment Equity survey had a 90.6% response rate (a 1.1% increase from the previous reporting period, and the highest since the relaunch of the Employment Equity Survey in 2016);

    • Gender identity
    • Sexual orientation
    • Indigenous or Aboriginal People of North America
    • Persons with disabilities
    • Racialized or persons of colour 
    • Ethno-cultural identity 
  • Respondents could have chosen to respond to some or all questions in the voluntary survey, including more than one response per question and could modify their responses at any time within the reporting period;
  • The Report included:
    • references to representation increases or decreases year-over-year refer to information published in the Report on Employment Equity 2020. In some cases, changes in representation were the product of a clearer sample of an existing employee base, rather than concrete changes in representation;
    • internal and external workforce analysis of women, racialized persons, Indigenous persons, and persons with disabilities. The report also captured data with respect to those who identify as 2SLGBQ+ (though there is no external comparative data)
    • analysis of intersectionality and overlap of identities (e.g. what proportion of women also identify as racialized/persons of colour?)
    • analysis of tri-campus representation rates
    • representation analysis and intersectional identities of persons who self-identify outside of gender binaries
    • Online information related to representation rates of CUPE 3902, Unit 1 
  • The representation rates for applicants, new hires, and staff who self-identified as Racialized Persons of Colour, Black, Persons with Disabilities, and 2SLGBQ+ increased from the previous reporting period; and
  • The representation rates of appointed faculty who self-identified as Indigenous or Aboriginal People of North America, Racialized or Persons of Colour, and Black increased from the previous reporting period.

    Professor Hannah-Moffat stated that together these reports (Item 3) were meant to continue to demonstrate the University’s commitment and progress to attracting and retaining diverse talent.

    There were no questions from Members.

    The 2021 Annual Employment Equity Report was received for information.

    The Chair expressed thanks to Professor Hannah-Moffat for her two excellent reports.

  1. University of Toronto Asset Management Corporation (UTAM): Annual Report and Financial Statements, 2021

    Trevor Rodgers, Chief Financial Officer, stated that the Business Board was responsible for reviewing annual reports for the University of Toronto Asset Management Corporation (UTAM), which included information on asset allocations, investment risk and return, and fees and expenses incurred. He reported that the 2021 financial statements for UTAM were approved by the UTAM Board at its meeting of March 18, 2022. Mr. Rodgers stated that over the previous year UTAM managed a complex transition of the University’s pension assets to the University Pension Plan Ontario [the “UPP”] and made considerable progress on advancing the University’s responsible investing approach. 

    On July 1, 2021, the University of Toronto’s pension assets became part of the combined holdings governed by the UPP. As of that date, the University entered into an agency agreement with the UPP Board of Trustees to provide investment services with respect to the University’s pension assets. The University also entered into an investment management agreement with UTAM to provide those investment services on the University’s behalf. The UPP agency agreement with respect to investment services and accordingly, the UTAM investment management agreement with respect to pension assets, terminated on March 31, 2022. 

    Chuck O’Reilly, President and Chief Investment Officer (CIO), University of Toronto Asset Management Corporation (UTAM) presented the UTAM Annual Report and Financial Statements, 2021.  

    Highlights of the presentation included the following:
  • The University had established investment targets for the University of Toronto Master Trust (“PMT”), and the Long-Term Capital Appreciation Pool (“LTCAP”) at an annual investment return of 4.0% plus the increase in CPI, net of fees and expenses, over ten year periods;
  • For the year ending December 31, 2021, the target investment return (including CPI) net of fees and expenses was 8.8% (2020: 4.7%);
  • The actual investment return for the year was 15.0% (2020: 11.7%) for PMT and 14.9% (2020: 11.6%) for LTCAP; 
  • The actual investment return for the Reference Portfolio was 10.2% (2020: 11.8%);
  • In 2021, the actual PMT return earned by UTAM was higher than the Reference Portfolio return by 4.8% (15.0% - 10.2%) and higher than the target return by 6.2% (15.0% minus 8.8%); and
  • For LTCAP, the actual return earned by UTAM was higher than the Reference Portfolio return by 4.7% (14.9% minus 10.2%) and exceeded the target return by 6.1% (14.9% minus 8.8%). 

    Mr. O’Reilly reported that over the last 10 years, the Pension and Endowment portfolios both outperformed their target returns by 4.3% per annum. They also outperformed the Reference Portfolio by 1.4% and 1.5% per annum, respectively, adding more than $964 million in additional value (on a combined basis) compared to the passive investment approach of the Reference Portfolio. The actual return for the Expendable Funds Investment Pool (EFIP), which consisted of short-term working capital assets of the University in 2021 was 0.0% - this exceeded the target return of -0.4% by 0.4%. Over the last 10 years, the actual return in EFIP had exceeded the target return by 0.3% per annum.

    Mr. O’Reilly stated that UTAM continued to advance its responsible investing approach in 2021. The initial carbon footprint reduction target of 40% by 2030 (using the 2017 baseline) had been achieved. As of December 31, 2021, LTCAP’s carbon footprint per million dollars invested was 51.6% lower than in 2017, and its absolute level of emissions was 27.6% lower. 

    Having achieved this objective ahead of target, Mr. O’Reilly reported that a number of new initiatives aimed at further combatting climate change were announced in October 2021. These included, among others, a commitment to divest LTCAP from investments in fossil fuel companies as well as a commitment to cut the net greenhouse gas emissions associated with investments in LTCAP to zero by 2050. As part of the commitment to net-zero, UTAM, on behalf of the University of Toronto, joined the United Nations-Convened Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance (Alliance), making the University of Toronto the first university in the world to join the Alliance. Over the brief period since joining the Alliance, UTAM had become an active member, joining three of the Alliance’s “work tracks.” UTAM is also currently working to establish its first interim carbon reduction target, consistent with the Alliance’s target setting protocol. 

    In response to Members’ comments and questions, it was reported that:
  • The UPP was a new entity jointly sponsored by the employers and employees of the University of Toronto and two other Ontario universities. 
  • Decisions with respect to the investments of the University’s pension assets became the responsibility of the UPP’s Board of Trustees as of July 1, 2021 – this also included responsibility for the responsible investing approach associated with those assets;
  • Effective March 31, 2022, UTAM was no longer involved in the investment management of the University’s pension assets and UTAM did not have any insight into UPP’s investment strategy; 
  • U of T was represented on the UPP Employer Sponsor Committee, which shared responsibility with the Employee Sponsor Committee to define the UPP funding policy and appoint the UPP Board of Trustees;
  • UTAM continued to manage U of T’s endowment and working capital funds (approximately $7 billion); and
  • During Q4 2021 and Q1 2021 UTAM reviewed the Reference Portfolio with the Investment Committee. While no significant changes to the Reference Portfolio were expected, UTAM and the Investment Committee had discussed the potential use of ex fossil fuel benchmark.

    The report was received by the Board for information.
  1. Report on Capital Projects as of March 31, 2022

    Professor Mabury, Vice-President, Operations and Real Estate Partnerships (OREP) presented the Capital Projects Report for the period ending March 31, 2022 – the report included a comprehensive list of capital projects under construction and in design.

    There were no questions from Members.
  2. University Development and Campus Services (UDCS): Annual Report 2021-22 and  Budget 2022-23 AND 4 Corners Annual Report 2021-22

    The Chair noted that under its Terms of Reference, the Board reviewed and approved the annual budget of unincorporated business ancillaries. 

    Professor Mabury stated that this was the second annual report for the University Development and Campus Services portfolio which was established by the Business Board in 2020. He added that the UDCS ancillary operation brought together St. George campus Ancillary Services and the tri-campus mandate of the University’s Real Estate department, both part of the division of Operations and Real Estate partnerships. 

    Anne Macdonald, Assistant Vice-President, Ancillary Services reported that the UDCS annual report was organized into three themes: “movement,” “growth,” and “expansion.”  She stated that overall, UDCS experienced a stronger recovery in fiscal 2022 than was originally expected, with gross revenue forecasted to end the year higher than budget. Ms Macdonald expressed optimism with the return-to-campus operations and its positive impact on revenues. She attributed the accomplishments contained in the Report to the commitment of UDCS employees – she was grateful of their efforts.

    Josh Mitchell, Director, Real Estate noted that UDCS also supported the 4 Corners strategy, which worked to leverage the university’s real estate assets to deliver amenities to support the academic mission and simultaneously grow revenue from sources other than enrolment. The University continued to pursue strategic acquisition opportunities, such as the Knox College properties, to meaningfully contribute to the future needs of UofT students, faculty and staff. He highlighted key development milestones, such as the official groundbreaking of Spadina/Sussex or Governance approval of the new graduate residence project, but also two new partnership opportunities for the second phase of the Schwartz Reisman Innovation Campus and a major University housing development that will serve as a new gateway to the St. George campus. Mr. Mitchell stated that additional projects and selected partnerships would be forthcoming to the Board.

    In response to Members’ questions and comments, Ms Macdonald and Mr. Mitchell stated the following:
  • increases in room rates at Graduate House and Chestnut took into consideration escalated costs, and a 5-year operations/capital plan. Plans were reviewed in consultation with student groups and users;
  • Residential Dining offers declining-balance meal plans for food purchases; the overall meal plan rate increases proposed were quite modest; pricing for individual items was based on the cost of the item, but UDCS takes into consideration the range of options available, and ensures that it is always possible to have a healthy meal at a predictable, affordable price.
  • This was the first year that data for local sourcing was collected in a methodical way. Availability of data/benchmarks with regards to sourcing local food products was expected to improve and be made available for public viewing in year ahead;
  • The review of residential food services had been recently concluded; recommendations from the external consultant were published on the Food Services website and would be discussed with stakeholders in the coming year; and
  • In response to a highly volatile food service market and challenges presented due to COVID-19, the University had closed various food service locations across campus; these would re-open as foot traffic improved – UDCS was examining other creative approaches for food services (e.g. “ghost” kitchens).
