Province Standing up for Ontario Workers and Businesses
Ontario is standing up for workers and businesses with the introduction of legislation that, if passed, would allow the government to take measured actions in response to discriminatory American procurement policies.
The proposed Fairness in Procurement Act would allow Ontario to take responsive action to address unfair government procurement practices that are being implemented in New York State and Texas, and considered in other states.
These policies represent a worrying trend towards protectionism and prevent Ontario businesses from accessing cross-border procurement opportunities.
Defending the interests of Ontario workers and businesses is part of Ontario’s plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change.
