2013 Ontario Economic Outlook and Fiscal Review

Chapter VIII: Pre-Budget Consultations

How to Participate in the 2014 Pre-Budget Consultations

Last year, the government had its most successful consultations to date.

This year, once again the Minister of Finance will be hosting pre-budget consultations with individuals and organizations as part of the Ontario government’s ongoing dialogue with the citizens of Ontario.

Through the use of modern technology, including virtual town halls, the Minister of Finance will continue to reach a broader audience in communities throughout the province.

A series of online consultations will provide a new interactive forum for participants to provide input. In particular, the Minister of Finance wants to hear Ontarians’ views regarding what more the government can do to create jobs and grow the economy, while eliminating the deficit.

Below is information on how you can share your views and ideas for the upcoming 2014 Budget.
