OFA provided comments and an agricultural perspective on the Draft Transportation Plan for Northern Ontario. COVID-19 has had significant impact on transportation, leading to service reductions that severely affect communities in Northern Ontario. Goals have been set in the Draft Transportation Plan for Northern Ontario. These goals include, getting people moving and connecting communities, enabling economic opportunities, keeping people safe by providing reliable transportation options, preparing for the future, maintaining a sustainable transportation system and implementing reliable travel options for remote and Far North communities. OFA supports efforts to strengthen schedule links, fare integration and co-location of transportation facilities to improve connections, service and travel options. To ensure this is affordable, OFA supports Ontario’s continuation of the Ontario Community Transportation Grant Program to help connect residents to transportation services in communities across Ontario. Provincial commitments to invest in the economic recovery, such as highway rehabilitation projects to help stimulate local economies are also encouraged. OFA believes significantly more dollars are needed to address underserved and unserved rural and Northern Ontario broadband and cellular service, especially last mile connectivity. Overall, OFA supports Ontario’s commitment to collaborate with Indigenous, municipal, and other public and private sector partners to deliver on actions across the Northern Ontario Transportation Plan.
