Wednesday marks day one of the provincial election campaign.

Healthcare was ranked the number one issue on the minds of Ontarians as provincial election candidates launch into their first official day of campaigning, according to a new poll.

The Nanos Research survey of 500 adults was commissioned on behalf of CTV News and CP24.

It found 27 per cent of respondents deemed healthcare as the number one issue guiding their ballot.

Following healthcare, 12 per cent of those polled registered the cost of living and inflation as their top concerns.

Meanwhile, 11 per cent of respondents said their number one issue was housing and 10 per cent said they were most concerned about the economy and jobs.

When it comes to the environment, eight per cent of people polled said it was their top issue, followed by education and debt/the deficit, which each respectively received 5 per cent.

The poll was conducted between April 28 and May 2. Respondents were randomly contacted via cell phone and landline. Results are considered accurate within 4.4 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
