Help Develop the 2014 Budget

Ontario Government Asks the Public for their Input and To Take Part

February 3, 2014Ministry of Finance

The Ontario government is asking individuals and organizations across the province for their input in advance of the 2014 Ontario Budget.

Today, Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance, was in Toronto as part of a province-wide tour of pre-budget discussions. They will include in-person sessions, telephone town halls and online. Throughout the tour, the government is collecting ideas from the public on growing the economy, creating jobs and protecting public services.

Encouraging people to have their say in the budget process is part of the government’s plan to invest in people, one of the three pillars of the government’s economic plan to build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

Quick Facts

  • This year again, people can join the online discussion by sharing what matters to them on the Budget Talks website, or by following @OntMinFinance on Twitter.
  • Pre-budget consultations began in December 2013 and will run until mid-February 2014.
  • People can also send their ideas by mail, email or fax or join the Twitter conversation at #BudgetTalks.


“I’m looking forward to visiting communities throughout Ontario, including here in Toronto, to hear directly on how best to move forward with our plan for jobs and growth and ensure that our 2014 Budget includes the values and priorities of people across the province.”
Charles Sousa
Minister of Finance
