A modern economy that works for everyone

Economies are changing around the world. Technologies are advancing, making new industries possible and sending others into decline. Climate concerns and the shift from a carbon economy are opening opportunities for many, but at the risk of closing doors for many others.

Andrea Horwath and the NDP believe that our economy should serve our people — all of our people. Economic growth and prosperity should be shared widely, not concentrated in a few hands. The working people who create that wealth should be able to support their families and plan for the future, instead of falling further behind. And as our economy changes, our provincial government has a responsibility to ensure nobody is left behind.
