2018 Provincial Budget

A Plan for Care and Opportunity

Today the government released the 2018 provincial Budget which includes significant new investments in health care, child care, home care and mental health, and new measures to create more job opportunities for people across the province and here in Halton. The Budget also focuses on initiatives that make life more affordable and provides more financial security during a time of rapid change. Our economy is booming, and unemployment rates are the lowest they have been in almost two decades. While this is great news for our province, we need to ensure that this economic growth is felt by everyone. We need to make sure that people are able to take care of themselves and their families. This budget is reflective of Ontario’s values, and will help build a fairer, better Ontario by supporting everyone in the province with the care and opportunity they need to get ahead. If passed, Ontario would expand OHIP+ with free prescription drugs for everyone 65 and over, improve mental health care and addictions services, and introduce free preschool child care for children aged two-and-a-half until eligible for kindergarten.
