Ontario’s next Provincial election will be held on June 7. Join us on Wednesday, May 30 for an exploration of candidate priorities and platforms as they relate to business.
In consultation with member Chambers like ours across Ontario, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce has developed Vote Prosperity, a platform for the 2018 provincial election campaign. This platform consists of 18 recommendations beneath four pillars and is designed to provide Ontario with a strategy to leverage our advantages and strengthen our global competitiveness. One May 30, it will serve as a tool for measuring candidate priorities against business interests.
Our candidates’ forum will feature candidates from parties currently holding seats in the Legislature, from both Thunder Bay – Superior North and Thunder Bay – Atikokan ridings.
