Only three weeks into the new year and already one round of provincial pre-budget consultations is complete.
ISAC presented recommendations for Ontario’s 2014 Budget to the Legislature’s Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs on January 16.
Our recommendations focused on:
- continuing to make positive reforms to social assistance;
- investing in positive reforms as a down-payment on Ontario’s next five-year poverty reduction strategy; and
- making sure investment comes from outside the programs instead of from moving money around within them.
