Investing In Ontario’s Transportation Future
Development and Innovation Ontario’s commitment to infrastructure is strengthening communities and the economy.
Ontario is a dynamic province that is constantly growing, changing and improving. We know firsthand the importance of strong transportation infrastructure in supporting a competitive economy and vibrant communities.
By making the right investments today, we can build highways, transit and the other vital infrastructure we need now and in the future. Through our long-term infrastructure plan Building Together, as well as Bill 141, the proposed Infrastructure for Jobs and Prosperity Act, 2013 we tabled last fall, we are committed to meeting Ontario’s infrastructure needs for generations to come.
"With strong infrastructure that meets the needs of our communities, we can connect people to jobs, attract businesses and give Ontario a competitive edge."
Reinvesting in Ontario
After decades of underinvestment, Ontario’s infrastructure is getting the provincial support it needs. Since 2003, we have invested almost $100 billion in infrastructure. These investments have helped municipalities modernize and expand their transit systems, repair and upgrade roads and bridges, and revitalize community infrastructure. Ontario continues to make significant infrastructure investments.
With investments of more than $19.3 billion in public transit and more than $19 billion in provincial highways and bridges over the last decade, we are building an effective transportation system that will help Ontarians get where they need to be, however they choose to travel.
More people are taking transit than ever before, removing cars from our roads that will make travel quicker and easier for everyone.
Dedicated, long-term investment in our infrastructure is vital to growing our economy and creating jobs in our communities. Our planned infrastructure investments will support well over 100,000 jobs on average each year over the next three years in construction and related industries across the province.
With strong infrastructure that meets the needs of our communities, we can connect people to jobs, attract businesses and give Ontario a competitive edge.
Our infrastructure is the backbone of our economy and our province, and it takes careful planning and substantial investment from all orders of government to make sure our communities have the foundations they need to grow successfully.
Ontario and our municipalities are doing our parts to support infrastructure projects across the province, and we ask the federal government to join us in securing our infrastructure future.
As we look ahead, Premier Kathleen Wynne is committed to the continued investment in provincial infrastructure so that our communities and economies are strengthened today, and your Ontario is ready for tomorrow.
