Building the economy

We are building the economy of the future to benefit you today. We’re making local investments in electric vehicles, tech, life sciences, food and manufacturing to create jobs and help build the economy in communities across Ontario.

These investments will help companies expand operations and place Ontario — and companies throughout the province — in a competitive global position.

Unlocking critical minerals and the Ring of Fire

We’re unlocking the economic potential of the Ring of Fire and Ontario’s abundant supply of the critical minerals in the North to produce batteries for electric vehicles.
