Rapid Policy Update: NDP Platform 2018


NDP Platform 2018


Ontario New Democrat Leader Andrea Horwath announced the NDP’s 2018 Election Platform Change for the Better. Below is a high-level synopsis of the major policy initiatives within the platform.

Five Key Promises

  1. Provide drug and dental coverage for all Ontarians.
  2. End hallway medicine and fix seniors care.
  3. A 30 percent cut to hydro bills by bringing Hydro One back into public hands.
  4. Take on student debt by converting loans to grants, and creating thousands of student co-op jobs.
  5. Protect middle-class families by having the wealthiest people and most profitable corporations pay their fair share.

Vote Prosperity

In October, the OCC released Vote Prosperity, a platform for the 2018 provincial election campaign on June 7. The release of our platform nine months prior to the election was intended to ensure all parties have an opportunity to address the most important issues to business within their own platforms.

Upon their release, we will provide an analysis of the Liberal and Progressive Conservative platforms with comparisons to recommendations in Vote Prosperity.

We are encouraging Ontarians to send a letter to their local candidates asking them to support the Ontario Chamber Network’s Vote Prosperity platform.
