Our Top Priorities
The past two years have revealed cracks within the systems we depend on, from climate ready jobs to mental health to housing.
We want latest solutions to a long time long problems that the old-line parties have simply failed to unravel. Ontario Greens have a plan to construct the Ontario you would like.
The Ontario Greens’ platform presents an actual plan to take a position in a Caring Society where people get the healthcare they need, Connected Communities with housing we are able to afford, and a Recent Climate Economy that creates jobs, reinvigorates Ontario’s manufacturing sector and protects our natural heritage.
The past two years have shown us just how much we depend on caring professions in healthcare, education, and social services to get us through. But neglect and half-measures from years of successive governments have strained services we depend on every single day.
Ontario Greens put people and the planet above profit. We all know that mental health is health, and our first of its kind Mental Health strategy is leading the best way.
Thriving communities have a combination of homes people can afford near transit, amenities and parks.
Yet the affordability crisis implies that homeownership is out of reach for many Ontarians. Now we have a daring plan that the Toronto Star called a “master class in housing policy,” and it begins with cracking down on the developers and land speculators driving up housing prices.
But a community is greater than a house – it’s the streets, parks, workplaces, schools, and shops that give communities their spirit and identity. It’s time to stop the sprawl. We are able to create 15 minute neighbourhoods , because less time commuting means more time living.
Recent Climate Economy
Other parties treat the environment like a burden, but for us, growing a sustainable economy that leaves nobody behind, is at the center of every little thing we imagine in. Ontario Greens are moving forward with our Roadmap to Net Zero, not with half measures but with strong, clear-eyed motion. We are able to restore and protect our natural infrastructure to minimize the blow of climate change and develop into a world leader in research, development and green entrepreneurship. We want to get big oil out of our pockets and embrace the brand new climate economy to secure the longer term we deserve, with the leadership we’d like.

Listed below are 6 key strategies in our plan:
Homes not highways
Freeze urban boundaries, construct 1.5M homes and 182,000 inexpensive community rental homes, including 60,000 supportive homes over the subsequent decade, and clamp down on speculation because homes are for people, not speculators.
Mental health is health
Increase mental health spending to 10% of our health budget to incorporate mental health care under OHIP, and reduce wait times for youngsters’s mental health care to lower than 30 days.
Recent Climate Economy
Establish an annual carbon budget to achieve net zero by 2045, electrify transportation, buildings and industry to crush pollution and lower energy costs, and supply as much as $25,000 for homeowners for energy retrofits to assist get monetary savings by saving energy.
Respect for People
Treat healthcare staff fairly by repealing Bill 124, paying PSWs, nurses and ECEs a good wage, and hiring 33,000 nurses. Improve economic security by doubling the rates for ODSP. Work in partnership with Indigenous communities, starting by implementing UNDRIP.
Reinvest in health and education
Help people age in place with a $1.6B investment in home care. In education, oppose any move toward mandatory e-learning or hybrid learning. Convert loans to grants for low and middle income post-secondary students.
Permanently protect prime farmland, wetlands and conserve 30% of nature by 2030. Provide $1B in funding for Indigenous climate leadership. Make infrastructure climate ready with a $2B adaptation fund for municipalities.
Our work is funded by grassroots supporters such as you.
Along with your help, we are able to construct an Ontario where we tackle housing affordability, act on climate and improve our health. Every little bit helps.
