About the plan

The Eastern Ontario Transportation Plan will help inform how we make decisions about policy and infrastructure investments and provide direction to municipalities, transportation agencies and service providers. The plan will help ensure our transportation system supports continued prosperity and quality of life and meets the environmental, economic and social needs of our families, businesses and communities.

Planning approach

The Eastern Ontario Transportation plan will consider possible transportation options to improve how people and goods get around the region.

The first phase of planning includes research and engagement with local residents, businesses, municipalities and Indigenous communities. A public survey will help us understand your needs and we’ll use that information to develop a draft transportation plan that identifies short-term actions and priorities. From there, we’ll do detailed analysis and consultations to develop a long-term transportation plan looking out 30 years.

How to participate

Share your feedback by answering the questions in our survey.

The survey will ask questions to help us understand:

  • how people and business move and what modes they use
  • your top concerns as Ontario reopens
  • actions Ontario can take to better support travel
  • your current and future priorities for the transportation system

Your responses will help us:

  • understand what you need to get to work, school, appointments and traditional lands
  • make sure businesses can rely on the network to move their goods across the system
