On April 27th, Ontario’s Finance Minister, the Honourable Charles Sousa, tabled the province’s budget for 2017 (“Budget 2017”). This year’s budget aims to return to a balanced budget in 2017-18 – the first since the 2008-09 global recession – and includes significant investments in health care and education. This budget proposes to provide free prescription drugs for individuals who are 24 years of age or younger, make investments to reduce patient wait times, assist students financially and make life more affordable for Ontario families.
