Ontario's Minister of Finance

Here's What You Missed

At a Leaders Luncheon held on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 we hosted the Honourable Peter Bethlenfalvy, Ontario’s Minister of Finance.  He took to the podium to discuss a number of key government initiatives that will impact the state of our economy as pandemic recovery gets underway.

We also reminded the minister of the burden that businesses have taken during the pandemic, and urged continual support and relief as the economy begins to reopen.
