Background

Since 1894, the Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA) has continuously searched for new ways to serve its membership more effectively. Our members have told us that they would like their councils to be better informed about the association’s policy & advocacy efforts as well as on important issues at Queen’s Park. In response, OGRA is introducing OGRA Connect, a policy-focused communication piece that can easily be added to your council’s agenda. OGRA Connect will keep you updated on advocacy efforts and as important issues at the provincial level arise.

2018 Ontario Budget – What Municipalities Need to Know

The 2018 Ontario Provincial Budget, entitled A Plan for Care and Opportunity, was heavy in new spending measures as the province heads into a general election and the unofficial campaign period begins. While most of the media coverage has focused on new social programs and the return to deficit, there are many goodies in this budget for municipalities looking for assistance with regard to transportation and infrastructure. Some items included in this budget have been previously announced but are now enshrined in the budget bill that will be debated at the Ontario Legislature over the coming weeks.
