It's Budget Day in Ontario

COVID 19 Money-Stadtratte

The Ford government is set to unveil its first pandemic-era budget today.
    
The province has said the budget will lay out the details of the next stage of its COVID-19 response.
    
That includes the new standard for long-term care announced earlier this week, which would see nursing home residents receive an average of four hours of direct care every day.
    
The Tories put off delivering a full fiscal plan earlier this year, citing the economic uncertainty caused by the global health crisis.
    
The fiscal update it gave in March instead initially included $17 billion in COVID-19 relief, though that projection was updated to $30 billion by the end of 2020-21.
    
The province also originally predicted a deficit of $20.5 billion, which was later raised to $38.5 billion because of the added spending.
