The Government of Ontario announced, May 21, 2015, the launch of consultations on infrastructure priorities for new infrastructure programs to serve communities and regions outside the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA). Under its Moving Ontario Forward initiative, the government has allocated $15 billion for investment in roads, bridges, transit, and other critical infrastructure in regions outside the GTHA.

A discussion paper, Moving Ontario Forward - Outside the GTHA, provides interested parties with information about these investments and how their voices can be heard. Feedback accepted until September 18, 2015. In a related initiative, the Ministry of Finance announced April 16, 2015, that Ontario is moving ahead with its plan to unlock the value of Hydro One by issuing an IPO to help fund investments in transit and transportation infrastructure projects. A Trillium Trust has been set up as a separate account to administer the funds and to ensure transparency.
