Another successful sitting

During the fall session of the legislature, our Liberal team moved forward on a number of measures to support our economic plan that invests in people, builds modern infrastructure and creates a dynamic and innovative business climate.

Since September, we passed 13 important bills, including:

  • The Local Food Act to help promote food that is grown, harvested and processed in Ontario—helping to create jobs here at home and helping our agri-food sector thrive
  • Establishing a Financial Accountability Officer as an independent officer of the Legislative Assembly—enhancing fiscal transparency in our province
  • The Skin Cancer Prevention Act (Tanning Beds) to restrict access to tanning beds for youth under 18
  • The Wireless Services Agreements Act to protect wireless and cell phone customers—requiring clear contracts from providers and making it less expensive for people to walk away from fixed-term contracts
  • The Supporting Small Businesses Act to help 60,000 small businesses save money and grow by increasing the exemption for the Employer Health Tax

We also introduced legislation that, if passed, would help increase Ontario’s prosperity and thrive by:

  • Supporting long-term infrastructure planning—the backbone of a stronger economy
  • Protecting the environment by eliminating coal-fired generation as a source of electricity
  • Improving the safety and accessibility of child care
  • Protecting Ontario's vulnerable workers

Premier Wynne and her team are also helping the province prosper by:

  • Launching the new Youth Jobs Strategy, which is helping create 30,000 job opportunities for young people across the province
  • Launching the Going Global Trade Strategy to help our home-grown Ontario businesses expand into new markets
  • Creating the new Small, Rural and Northern Municipal Infrastructure Fund to help address critical infrastructure needs in small, rural and northern communities
  • Unveiling our new Open Government initiative
