Ontario is proposing legislation that, if passed, would support long-term strategic infrastructure planning to build a stronger economy that supports more jobs and apprenticeship opportunities.
If passed, the proposed Infrastructure for Jobs and Prosperity Act would require the province to regularly table a long-term infrastructure plan in the legislature covering a period of at least 10 years. The proposed act also includes guiding principles to help planning align with demographic and economic trends to maximize the value of provincial infrastructure investments and promote innovation, competitiveness, and job creation and training.
Recognizing the province's need for skilled trade workers, the proposed legislation would also require the government to involve apprentices in the construction of certain provincial infrastructure projects.
Strengthening communities by supporting strategic growth is part of the Ontario government's plan to invest in people, build modern infrastructure, and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.
