My colleagues Ministers Sarkaria and Bethlenfalvy have released the 2020-21 Public Accounts, which provides a retrospective look at the province’s fiscal performance over the previous fiscal year. The 2020-21 Public Accounts confirm that our government made record investments in healthcare and other vital frontline services to protect the health, safety and well-being of Ontarians in the fight against COVID-19.

Government program spending rose by $16.7 billion compared to 2019-20, representing the largest year-over-year dollar increase on record. Critical investments include increases of $5.8 billion in the health sector and $1.1 billion in the education sector over the 2019-20 fiscal year.
