  Finance Minister to table pre-election budget that returns Ontario to deficit Finance Minister Charles Sousa will table a pre-election budget on March 28 that puts Ontario back into the red. “We are choosing to put our strengthened fiscal position to work, to address our priorities, your priorities — and, as a result, we will be running a deficit, starting next year,” Sousa told an Economic Club of Canada luncheon Wednesday.The treasurer said the shortfall would be “less than 1 per cent of GDP.”Given that Ontario’s gross domestic product was $794 billion in 2016, that suggests a deficit that could be almost $8 billion in 2018-19.“We are making a choice.

The deal will be the second in as many weeks as part of a federal push to sign all funding agreements with each province and territory by the end of the month.

Last week, the federal Liberals signed a funding agreement with Northwest Territories which included wording that could allow the territory to transfer public transit money to projects that help communities mitigate the effects of climate change.

Provinces and territories had asked Sohi for flexibility in how they use federal funding at the outset of negotiations this fall.

The territorial deal also laid out expected community employment benefits from any project and set timelines for project spending over the next decade.

The Liberals want projects funded under the second phase of their infrastructure program to contribute to economic growth and show environmental benefits, particularly by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
