Today, Minister of Finance launched this year's budget consultations designed to provide a variety of ways for the people of Ontario to tell the province their creative ideas. Given Ontario's inherited fiscal burden, the government is seeking innovative and cost-effective ideas that could help generate savings and improve the delivery of a program or service.
As part of the consultations, people are encouraged to submit their innovative ideas no later than February 8, 2019.
The government remains committed to delivering on its five core commitments to Ontarians: to put more money in people's pockets, clean up the hydro mess, create and protect jobs, restore accountability and trust in government, and cut hospital wait times.
The minister will also attend in-person sessions across the province to hear from local communities. Ontarians can also submit ideas by filling out an online submission form, emailing ideas, or mailing their ideas directly to the Ministry of Finance.
