They campaigned on a slogan to “get it done,” pledging to build highways and transit infrastructure and open up the “Ring of Fire,” a mineral-rich area in northern Ontario.

Promise History

1.11.24 - “Develop our natural resources: Move forward with resource revenue sharing from mining, forestry and aggregates to help Northern towns and Indigenous communities share in resource development”

Not yet rated

During the 2018 election campaign, Doug Ford promised that the percentage of money that would flow back into the northern communies would be in the range of $20 to $30 million. Although the Ontario government has reiterated its commitment to share resource revenues with Northern towns and Indigenous communities in 2019, no steps have been taken to fulfill this promise to date.

“The Minister for Northern Development and Mines says northern Ontario communities won’t get a cut of resource revenue until next year, at the earliest. He says details won’t likely be released until 2020 and possibly not until that year’s fall economic statement.”

“‘We’re going to introduce real, formal revenue sharing for northern resources,’ said Ford, in a prepared statement. ‘This means that more money from mining, forestry and aggregates stays right here in the North for the people of northern Ontario.’ He said the revenue sharing will benefit communities, including indigenous communities. While he doesn’t have a breakdown of the percentage of money that would flow back into the north, he says it will be in the range of $20 to $30 million.”
