Ontario’s 2015 Budget – Building Ontario Up – makes smart investments in people and our communities, builds modern infrastructure, and creates opportunity and security for Ottawa families.
Highlights of our plan include:
Ontario will continue to invest in the things that matter to Ottawa to help spur growth today and tomorrow. The government has a strong plan and is on track to balance the budget by 2017–18. Ontario’s 2015 Budget lays out a plan that invests in the priorities of Ottawa families to create more jobs, more transit, more opportunity, and an even brighter future.
Our budget will allocate 11.9 billion to continue funding necessary infrastructure in Glengarry-Prescott-Russell, including improvements to our bridges, public transit, and water systems, as well as making additional funds available for investment in our highway system, through the Connecting Links program.
- Grant Crack, MPP Glengarry-Prescott-Russell
“This Budget is practical and fair and protects the things that are most important to Ottawa families, like jobs for young people, healthcare when we need it, great schools for our children and a secure retirement for hardworking Ontarians.”
– John Fraser, MPP Ottawa South
“Our 10-year, $2.5 billion Jobs and Prosperity Fund helps to secure key investments, supports growth and creates well-paying jobs in Ottawa and Ontario. This fund will be enhanced by an additional $200 million to support our strategic partnerships with the business sector so that we may continue to foster a positive economic environment for Ontario”
-- Marie-France Lalonde, MPP Ottawa-Orléans
“The commemoration of the 400th anniversary of French presence in Ontario is an excellent opportunity for the province to celebrate our history and heritage. I am very proud that our government is fully committed to celebrating this occasion.”
-- Madeleine Meilleur, MPP Ottawa-Vanier
“Permanently dedicating $15 billion for local transit priorities in Ottawa like Phase 2 of the LRT is good news for our residents and our businesses. It builds on our unprecedented public transit investments like the Trillium Line (O-Train) and Confederation Line (Phase 1 LRT) to help improve the quality of life by reducing congestion, making it easier for our residents, and safer streets for cyclists and pedestrians.”
-- Yasir Naqvi, MPP Ottawa Centre
