Boosting Ontario’s Economic Recovery

COVID-19 Economic Recovery Act will help create jobs and opportunities, build stronger communities

Strong, decisive leadership is needed now more than ever as we plan for our recovery.

Our PC government is taking the necessary steps now to ensure the province can help thousands of people get back to work, support communities and provide the people with opportunity to improve themselves and their situation. To that end, today we introduced the COVID-19 Economic Recovery Act, proposed legislation that lays the foundation for growth, renewal and economic recovery.

“People are relying on our government to help rebuild the province and get people back to work ― and that’s exactly what we’re doing, starting with this new legislation,” said Doug Ford, MPP for Etobicoke North and Premier of Ontario.

To create jobs and get our economic engine roaring again, we need to get key infrastructure projects built faster, attract more jobs and investment, and adjust regulations to help businesses adapt to the new environment. If passed, the legislation will help boost the province’s economic recovery by:

  • Restarting jobs and development: by getting key infrastructure projects built faster, attracting more jobs and investment, and cutting red tape to help businesses adapt to the new environment
  • Strengthening communities: by ensuring municipalities are equipped with the tools they need to continue to provide the critical services people rely on every day
  • Creating opportunity for people: by protecting consumers, modernizing services, improving the education system and removing the social and economic barriers that stand in the way of success for young people

Our PC government will continue to be a champion for every community in Ontario as we chart a path to a strong economic recovery.
