Policy and Planning - VOTE 2702

The Policy and Planning Program is responsible for identifying the long-term, strategic interests of the province with respect to Ontario's transportation systems, including transit. It also develops and implements policies, plans, programs and investments necessary to achieve that interest.

The program leads economic analysis and strategic research to support the sustainable and efficient movement of goods and people across Ontario's multimodal transportation system. It is also responsible for managing the province's relationship with Crown Agencies such as Metrolinx, which includes GO Transit, and for leading the development of an integrated multimodal Pan/ParaPan Am Games Transportation Plan.

Additionally, the program works to advance Ontario's transportation priorities and interests through the development of strong relationships with the federal government, other provinces, municipalities, and Aboriginal communities.
