Ontario's 43rd Parliament
24 Jun 2022 - Present

The 2022 Ontario general election was held on June 2, 2022 to elect the 124 members of the 43rd Parliament of Ontario. The Progressive Conservative (PC) Party of Ontario, led by Doug Ford, won a majority government with 83 of the 124 seats in the legislature. The incumbent party, they increased their seat share from 76 in the 2018 election. 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. Instead of an election platform, the Ontario PC Party presented its promises on its website in the form of press releases throughout the campaign.

Promise History

2.12.19 - “If re-elected, the Ontario PCs will also introduce legislation to increase [Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP)] rates annually, tied to inflation”

Partially kept

The Ford government announced that ODSP rates would increase in September 2022 and that future rates would be adjusted for inflation. While ODSP rates are set to increase, it has not yet been proven that the rates will rise annually, tied to inflation. This promise is therefore considered partially kept.

“To help bring relief and to help offset rising living costs for low-income families and individuals with a disability, Ontario is delivering on the government’s commitment to increase the rates for income support by five per cent beginning in September 2022 for families and persons under the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP). Future ODSP rates will also be adjusted to inflation to help protect ODSP clients against rising costs moving forward.”
