MEDEI Announces Moving Ontario Forward Public Consultations

As part of Ontario's largest planned infrastructure investment, the Ministry of Economic Development, Employment, and Infrastructure (MEDEI) is launching public consultations across Ontario. This will enable communities to provide input as to where the province should direct the investments. Planned investments include roads, bridges, health centres, schools, and broadband internet.

Following is the news article of the announcement from news.ontario.ca;

Ontario is consulting with communities across the province to ensure local priorities are heard as part of the development of a long-term plan to build roads, bridges, transit, hospitals and schools.
Feedback provided will inform the province when determining how to allocate the remaining $11.5 billion of a $15 billion investment outside the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area as part ofMoving Ontario Forward, Ontario's long-term plan to build critical infrastructure in communities across the province.
This funding is part of the largest infrastructure investment in Ontario's history -- more than $130 billion over 10 years. The government's plan to build Ontario up is supported by a number of initiatives, including broadening the ownership of Hydro One -- an approach that raises billions for infrastructure.
Roundtable consultation meetings will be held in these communities.
Ontarians can also provide feedback online or in writing by September 18, 2015.
Moving Ontario Forward is part of the government's plan to build Ontario up. The four-part plan includes investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario's history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
The public is encouraged to participate to ensure the needs of their communities are brought forward and heard. Rural broadband is important to many aspects of a community and ensures that they remain economically viable. Click here to see when you can attend a consultation near your community.
