Ontario to unveil 2015-16 budget on April 23
TORONTO (Reuters) - The government of Ontario, Canada's most populous province, will unveil its budget on April 23, and said it remains on course to balance its books by 2017-18.
The province's finance minister, Charles Sousa, said in a statement on Tuesday that the 2015-16 budget will balance investments needed to create jobs with moves needed to shrink the deficit. For the 2014-15 fiscal year ended March 31, the deficit is expected to be C$10.9 billion ($8.76 billion).
