Ontario Government Hold Budget Consultation in Etobicoke: Government looking for ideas that will Build Ontario Together

Published on February 11, 2020

Etobicoke – The Ontario Government is asking people in Etobicoke-Lakeshore, Etobicoke Centre and Etobicoke North for their best advice on how to make life more affordable, invest in critical public services and balance the budget by 2023 through public consultations for the 2020 Budget.

Today, Christine Hogarth, MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore, Kinga Surma MPP for Etobicoke-Centre and special guest Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance Stan Cho were at the Canadian Restaurant to host a public consultation for the 2020 Budget.

The government is looking for ideas that will help build Ontario together by putting jobs, skills and the workers front and centre, while continuing to focus on putting more money in people’s pockets, connecting people to places, building healthier and safer communities, and making government smarter.

“The Ontario Budget impacts us all. It is important for us to hear first-hand form everyone across the province about the priorities they feel should be included in our plan to build Ontario together,” said Christine Hogarth, MPP. “Together, we can make this vision a reality and enable a better quality of life and a high standard of living for all our citizens.”

“The Pre-budget consultation provides Ontarians with an important opportunity to contribute to the planning of Ontario’s 2020 budget. By listening to the people of Ontario, we can develop a budget that addresses their priorities and is informed on the best ideas from people around the province,” said Kinga Surma, MPP.

Minister Phillips and Parliamentary Assistant Stan Cho will be hosting community budget consultations along with MPPs across the province to hear directly from Ontario’s hard-working individuals, families and businesses.
