Ontario Establishes Economic Task Force for Scarborough Transit

New Ontario Government Investing $1.4 Billion to Build Scarborough Subway; Creating 14,000 Jobs

Ontario is appointing a task force that will help expand and build transit in Scarborough to create jobs and economic opportunities for the community.

Co-chaired by Scarborough Centre MPP Brad Duguid and Toronto City Councillor Michael Thompson, the task force will build transit that will create jobs through an urban renewal strategy for Scarborough. It will also strengthen the regional economy by reducing gridlock so that families can get to and from work easily and businesses can get their products moving more quickly and spend less time sitting in traffic.

The strategy will also encourage smart urban development to help leverage private investment, establish new transit corridors, improve access to public services, maximize ridership, develop industrial clusters and create greater connectivity to the region.

The Province continues to urge the Federal government to develop a national infrastructure strategy and to invest in transit in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

Investing in public transit infrastructure is part of the new Ontario government's plan to help reduce gridlock, strengthen communities, create jobs and help people in their everyday lives.
