On Thursday, February 25th, our government released the 2016 Ontario Budget: Jobs for Today and Tomorrow, which outlines the next phase of our government’s plan to create jobs and economic growth.
We understand Ontarians are worried about the state of the economy and how it might affect them and their families. The 2016 budget will allow families and businesses to see how our government is building on its plan to create jobs and grow the economy, building more opportunity and ensuring greater financial security for people.
Our plan invests in our economy’s most important resource – our people – and demonstrates that our plan to eliminate the deficit is working, on target and on schedule. We will balance the budget next year, in 2017-18.
Some of the budget highlights include:
“Ontario Budget 2016 demonstrates our government’s commitment to strengthening communities and the economy. The new Ontario Student Grant will mean post-secondary students from families earning less than $50,000 can graduate without debt. Infrastructure projects like the Hurontario LRT and widening of Highway 410 will unlock the region’s economy and support thousands of good jobs.”
