MINISTRY OF TRANSPORTATION - THE ESTIMATES, 2005-06 - Summary

Transportation is a cornerstone of economic prosperity and a strengthened quality of life. Much of what we value, our jobs, our health, our education and our leisure time, are affected by the quality and availability of transportation. Similarly, Ontario's export-driven economy relies upon this same system to move goods and people efficiently and competitively, particularly in the current climate of just-in-time delivery.

The Ministry of Transportation supports strong communities that offer a high quality of life and a positive business climate by building and maintaining a safe, balanced and integrated transportation network within Ontario. Consequently, the ministry is pursuing ways to make public transit a viable alternative by promoting increased convenience, flexibility and accessibility. In addition, the ministry is working to ensure that Ontario's transportation infrastructure is maintained regularly, repaired when necessary and strategically expanded in order to protect public investments and that this is carried out in an environmentally responsible manner.

The ministry is also pursuing new and innovative technologies to ensure that our programs and services meet people's needs and that transportation continues to support job creation, tourism, business investment, trade and a high quality of life for Ontarians into the 21st century.
