Using the most recent information available, the 2016 Ontario Economic Outlook and Fiscal Reviewupdates the economic assumptions from the 2016 Ontario Budget. The impact of these changes is applied to the government’s revenue and expenditure projections, which revise the anticipated financial results for the current fiscal year.
Some highlights include:
- Ontario has created more than 600,000 jobs since the recession in 2009 and is projected to create more than 300,000 additional jobs by the end of 2019, bringing total job creation to more than 900,000 net new jobs over a 10-year period.
- Starting in the 2017–18 school year, Ontario is making college and university education more affordable and accessible with our plan to prepare more students for the jobs of tomorrow.
- Making the biggest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history — $160 billion over 12 years — supporting over 110,000 jobs, on average, each year.
