With the Ontario Government now back to the legislature, Premier Doug Ford has announced, “To start us down the road to long-term recovery, this legislative session will focus on implementing our comprehensive plan to get Ontario back on track.”
Actions included within this announcement are:

- Building Ontario’s production capacity for personal protective equipment, ventilators, and other medical gear so the province never has to rely on any other jurisdiction again for these critical supplies;
- Protecting families and those most vulnerable and helping them get back on their feet as the province reopens;
- Helping young people and workers receive the skills training they need to join the modern workforce and contribute to the recovery of the province;
- Accelerating the construction of critical highway, transit, and broadband infrastructure projects to create jobs and boost the local economies of communities across Ontario;
- Providing relief to Mainstreet Ontario and small business owners so they can recover from the impact of COVID-19 faster and get back to the work of building their business; and
