Balancing a budget is tough and takes vision and discipline. The Ontario government is working on balancing the province’s books, collecting information and consulting across ministries to develop the 2019 provincial budget.
The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) understands the province’s current fiscal situation and the need for restraint, but we also know that sound public investment in Ontario agriculture and rural communities will pay dividends and will ultimately improve Ontario’s fiscal outlook by driving our economy forward.
OFA will be presenting budget recommendations to the provincial government, offering advice on pursuing a policy of distributed economic development through prudent public investment. We are confident that any monies invested in rural Ontario will drive business development and the provincial economy along with job and housing opportunities for families.
