Ontario is inviting the public to vote on ideas they would like to see implemented in the 2017 Budget to help people in their everyday lives by strengthening communities and improving public services.
Voting is now open through Budget Talks, an innovative online consultation tool that allows the public to help shape policies and programs that will be part of Ontario’s future.
The ideas posted on Budget Talks for public voting support eight focus areas including increasing access to child care, support for Ontario’s small businesses, making health care easier to access and identifying priority infrastructure projects.
Visit Ontario.ca/Budgettalks to vote for your three favourite ideas until midnight, February 23, 2017. The top-voted ideas will be announced as part of the upcoming 2017 Budget.
Engaging the people of Ontario in the budget process is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit ideas on Budget Talks. These ideas help us better understand what matters most to people so we can prepare a budget that reflects their priorities. Budget Talks provides Ontarians with a dynamic, interactive way to let people have their say and helps the government better understand what matters most to them. I look forward to reviewing the results of the voting phase, which will help determine which projects will be funded as part of our 2017 Budget.”
— Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance
