- About the Council
As Canada’s largest economy, Ontario plays a key role in driving economic growth across the country and that’s why today’s provincial budget is so important for all Canadians.
The Business Council of Canada, which represents the leaders of Canada’s top businesses that employ 1.7 million Canadians, welcomes measures introduced today to review and reduce the regulatory burden, help employers attract skilled workers and modernize business support programs.
We applaud the government’s commitment to balancing the budget and tackling the province’s unsustainable debt. The best way to reduce the deficit and debt is to grow the economy, which also allows us to sustain the social programs that the people of Ontario and all Canadians value.
