Ontario's 42nd Parliament
07 Jun 2018 - Present

The 2018 Ontario general election was held on June 7, 2018 to elect the 124 members of the 42nd Parliament of Ontario.

The Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, led by Doug Ford, won a majority government with 76 of the 124 seats in the legislature. The incumbent Liberal government was effectively swept out of Parliament, securing only 7 seats in the legislature and consequently having to surrender official party status.

In progress

In June 2020, the Ontario government unveiled a new math curriculum for Grades 1 to 8. The proposed curriculum includes new subjects, like financial literacy and coding, and places renewed emphasis on “fundamental” math concepts and/or skills, such as memorization, which did not figure prominently in the 2005 curriculum that was in place under the previous provincial government.

“In the 2005 curriculum, students are not required to memorize key number facts. In the 2020 curriculum, there will be more focus on fundamental math concepts, such as learning multiplication facts of 0 × 0 to 12 × 12, to enhance problem solving and mental math.”
