2021 ONTARIO BUDGET
PROTECTING PEOPLE'S HEALTH AND OUR ECONOMY
Our small businesses, the foundation of our community, are getting the relief they need, our families are getting more help, our long-term care and health care sector is getting needed investments, and people seeking employment are getting access to more job training to enhance their skills. All of this will help Barrie-Innisfil make a strong economic recovery post COVID-19
Today the 2021 Budget and next phase of Ontario’s response to COVID-19 was released - Ontario’s Action Plan: Protecting People’s Health and Our Economy. This is the second Budget to be delivered during the pandemic and is designed to continue to protect the health and jobs of the people in Barrie and Innisfil, while also focusing on economic growth and recovery post-COVID-19. The people of Barrie and Innisfil have made tremendous sacrifices this past year to keep the community safe; and as the pandemic is nearing its end, more needed support is being provided to ensure that we can unleash the economic growth that is necessary for job creation, prosperity and an even stronger connected community afterwards.
The 2021 Budget builds on the government's record investments in response to the global pandemic, bringing total investments to $16.3 billion to protect people's health and $23.3 billion to protect our economy. Ontario's COVID-19 action plan support now totals $51 billion.
