Ontario launching three-week online public consultation
Treasury Board President Peter Bethlenfalvy announced yesterday the next step in engaging with Ontarians by launching a three week online public consultation.
Government officials say the Planning for Prosperity consultation complements the line-by-line review of all government programs and services.
“It is important that Ontarians have a direct say in how government can improve the effectiveness and efficiency of provincial programs and services, while avoiding job cuts,” said Minister Bethlenfalvy. “We will continue listening to the people of Ontario about what matters most to them, and we will use what we hear to ensure our vital public services are affordable and sustainable, both now and in the years to come.”
Through this consultation, Ontarians will have the opportunity to rank the importance and effectiveness of a range of government services. This consultation will allow people, including members of the Ontario Public Service, to suggest new ideas to transform the way those services are delivered in an open and transparent way.
“Premier Doug Ford and our government are committed to restoring accountability and trust in how taxpayers’ money is spent,” added Minister Bethlenfalvy. “These consultations and the line-by-line review will help us improve public services so that Ontarians have confidence that their money is being spent with prudence and care.”
