Vote Prosperity

In October, the OCC released Vote Prosperity, a platform for the 2018 provincial election campaign on June 7. The release of our platform nine months prior to the election was intended to ensure all parties have an opportunity to address the most important issues to business within their own platforms.

We have provided analyses of the Liberal, NDP, and Green Party platforms with comparisons to recommendations in Vote Prosperity.

With the election just a week away, we are encouraging Ontarians to send a letter to their local candidates asking them to support the Ontario Chamber Network’s Vote Prosperity platform.
