The Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs will be in Ottawa, Brockville, and Cornwall to hear from local stakeholders and community groups about what priorities should be included in the 2024 Ontario Budget. These hearings are open to individuals and organizations, with an option to participate remotely.
This is the chance for neighbours to champion the issues that matter most to them, and advocate for their government to invest seriously in the impactful, community-based solutions we know can make a difference.
Solutions like more operational funding to our public transit systems, support for our amazing Community Health Centres, and investment in deeply affordable public housing. Like action on our climate emergency, initiatives to address rising levels of hatred, and strategies to help struggling downtown small businesses and neighbours struggling with mental health challenges.
Ottawa Centre is full of strong advocates on these and many other issues. Now is the perfect time to raise our voices and let these advocates be heard. Ontario needs your help.
