Course correction: Charting a new road map for Ontario

Released November 2013

Ontario needs to correct its economic course with substantial investments and major productivity gains if it is to accelerate its stagnant growth

In Course correction: Charting a new road map for Ontario, the Task Force identifies a number of key measures needed in both the private sector and government to get Ontario’s economy on the right track. Some recommendations are not new; lack of business investment in innovation and productivity enhancing equipment, for example, continues to be a stubborn problem among Canadian businesses. Labour productivity, particularly in Ontario’s important manufacturing sector, continues to be a leading drag on the province’s competitiveness. Without substantial change in these areas, Ontario will continue to miss its target of eliminating the prosperity gap.
