OFA presented key advice from OFA’s Producing Prosperity in Ontario campaign to secure a policy of distributed economic development through prudent public investment. Sound investments in rural Ontario will jumpstart farming, agri-business and rural Ontario growth, and in turn, stimulate the entire Ontario economy. OFA strongly recommends the Ontario government work with municipalities across rural Ontario to develop and adopt a cost-effective infrastructure program (roads, bridges, drainage and broadband) and provide funding to rural municipalities to implement the program. OFA believes it is time to adopt a new approach – a concerted effort to boost our rural economy through a planned program of investment in distributed economic development. Economic growth throughout Ontario, including small town Ontario, will increase government tax revenue, reduce government dependency and benefit all Ontarians.
