2016 Pre-Budget Submission to the Government of Ontario
The OCC Weighs In on How the Ontario Budget Can Grow the Economy and Create Jobs
Our 2016 Pre-Budget Submission outlines 13 specific recommendations that we believe the Government of Ontario must adopt to restore fiscal balance and spur growth in our economy.
The submission outlines four key budget priorities, including the need to eliminate the deficit, leverage new market opportunities, and achieve much needed regulatory reforms.
Ontario’s current fiscal situation deters private investment, reduces the government’s capacity to make productivity-enhancing investments, and compromises the government’s ability to respond to future economic slowdowns. Our pre-budget submission outlines many opportunities for business and government to work together to develop a coordinated response to these challenges.
