Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced that $4 billion in financial support will be given to municipalities across the province, in partnership with the federal government. Up to $2 billion will be dedicated to support Ontario’s transit systems.

“I fought for transit, I fought for municipalities and in a show on unity, the federal government stepped up to the plate,” Ford said at a press conference on Monday.

The Ontario government indicated that details on specific allocations will be shared in the coming weeks. Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs, said some of the social service funds will be application based, while others will be on a per-household basis.
