Key Budget Highlights Summary

Infrastructure Highlights

  • Ontario’s Plan to Build includes the most ambitious capital plan in the province’s history, with $190.2 billion over the next decade to support growing businesses, families and newcomers.

  • That includes $1 billion in our new Municipal Housing Infrastructure Program and $825 million for the Housing‐Enabling Water Systems Fund. The $1.2 billion Building Faster Fund is also helping municipalities build new homes.

  • Introducing the Community Sport and Recreation Infrastructure Fund. Ontario is investing $200 million over three years in a new application‐based local Community Sport and Recreation Infrastructure Fund, demonstrating the government’s commitment to provide children, families and seniors across Ontario with new and improved opportunities to participate in sport and recreational activities. The fund will support a growing population by investing in new and revitalized sport, recreation and community facilities for youth and families. Addressing the critical need for infrastructure support in the sport and recreation sectors will ensure that the people of Ontario can live, work and play in their local communities.  

Investing in People

  • Since our government launched the Skills Development Fund in 2021, we have trained more than 500,000 workers for better jobs and bigger paycheques, including carpenters, plumbers and healthcare personnel through nearly 600 training projects.

  • Through an additional $100 million in the Skills Development Fund this year, we will continue to help job seekers advance their careers.
