Ontario businesses have created over 800,000 net new jobs since the height of the Recession in 2009. Together, we’ve created a competitive business environment, a highly skilled workforce, and a low corporate tax rate while making infrastructure investments that will help sustain our growth for years to come.

In partnership with business and workers, Ontario Liberals are growing the economy – and making sure it benefits more people.

“The Ontario Liberals want to see our businesses and our workers thrive. We have a plan to continue growing Ontario’s economy so that everyone can benefit,” said Jaclynne Hamel, Ontario Liberal candidate for Sault Ste. Marie.

A re-elected Liberal government will continue to grow our economy by:

  • Standing up for Ontario workers as NAFTA is renegotiated: our Leader has been clear in our determination to ensure a deal that benefits Ontario. Your Liberal government has advocated directly to states to protect our trade relationships and our integrated economies.
  • Investing more in the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation: we have committed to increasing NOHFC funding, to build more partnerships with businesses in Northern Ontario. These partnerships grow our economy, having created more than 15,000 jobs since 2013 – almost 5,000 of which are in Sault Ste. Marie.
  • Investing in a highly skilled workforce: the Ontario Liberals will create 15,000 more apprenticeship spaces, and have already transformed student aid so more students can attend postsecondary with covered tuition costs.

This morning, Jaclynne Hamel met with Rory Ring, CEO of the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce. If elected, Hamel would advocate on behalf of the Chamber and the community’s small businesses to strengthen economic competitiveness, foster job creation, and see increased investments in Sault Ste. Marie.

“I am confident that the Ontario Liberal Party platform addresses many of the Chamber’s concerns. I would welcome the opportunity to work closely with SSMCOC to advance Sault Ste. Marie’s economy for its businesses and the people they employ.”
