Ontario Releases Progress Reports to the Public for the First Time

By Ontario Office of the Premier.

January 11 - Ontario's cabinet ministers today released progress reports detailing how the government is delivering on the priorities laid out in Premier Kathleen Wynne's mandate letters.

As part of the Premier's Open Government Initiative, the cabinet ministers' reports were published online, bringing Ontario closer to its goal of becoming the most open and transparent government in Canada.

In September 2014, the Premier's mandate letters to ministers -- 30 in total -- were made available to the public for the first time. Mandate letters outline the specific priorities for each member of cabinet and their ministry. Ministers were directed to work with one another on overarching priorities such as building modern infrastructure, poverty reduction, skills training and growing the economy.
