Our existing income security system is failing to meet Ontario’s needs. It is falling short on adequacy, design, and delivery. It is burdensome for governments to administer and for recipients to navigate. It undermines the economic growth of the province. In the long term, the costs of maintaining this status quo are far greater than the costs of improving the system.

Ontarians deserve political leadership that acts on behalf of all Ontarians, not just those that fit into their political target markets. It’s time for our party leaders to be open, honest, and ambitious on income security.
