Fewer Fees, Better Services Act

The government is laying the foundation for certainty and stability in our economy for people, communities, and businesses across the province. Cutting red tape and putting money back into the pockets of Ontarians remains a hallmark of this government’s mandate

We’re establishing a single window for business services, requiring service standards so businesses can track how long it will take to get the information they need from government.

We’re saving costs for millions of vehicle owners by removing the requirements for using vehicle plate stickers and their associated fees.

We’re making life more affordable by removing tolls from highways 412 and 418. This responds particularly to requests from municipal leaders and Indigenous communities in Durham Region.

We are helping to level the playing field for Ontario businesses by ensuring more government procurement, where possible, is directed toward local Ontario businesses. 

The government is proposing to amend the Fiscal Sustainability, Transparency and Accountability Act (FSTAA) to extend the deadline to release the 2022 Budget from March 31, 2022 to April 30, 2022. This would allow the government to introduce the Budget at a time when we can assess the effects of the reopening of the economy and ensure our 2022 Budget best reflects the priorities of the people of Ontario.
