The 2022 Ontario general election was held on June 2, 2022 to elect the 124 members of the 43rd Parliament of Ontario. The Progressive Conservative (PC) Party of Ontario, led by Doug Ford, won a majority government with 83 of the 124 seats in the legislature. The incumbent party, they increased their seat share from 76 in the 2018 election. They campaigned on a slogan to “get it done,” pledging to build highways and transit infrastructure and open up the “Ring of Fire,” a mineral-rich area in northern Ontario. Instead of an election platform, the Ontario PC Party presented its promises on its website in the form of press releases throughout the campaign.

Promise History

2.12.15 - “We will […] produce more [Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)] […] right here in Ontario so we don’t have to rely on other countries ever again”

Partially kept

“The association that represents Canadian PPE companies says 90 per cent of those businesses have been forced to close or pivot to other industries because the federal government and Ontario have given contracts to a massive American company and a Quebec operation. […] Hunt, of the PPE manufacturers association, said governments owe companies who answered the emergency pandemic call. Ottawa and Ontario may have provided funding and helped with research and development, but they haven’t come through with orders, he said.”

Not yet rated

During their first term, the Ford government proposed legislation to ensure that PPE was stockpiled and available at all times. However, as this does not directly relate to the production of PPE - only storing of PPE - this promise is considered not yet rated.

“The Ontario government is protecting people against future unforeseen emergencies by introducing legislation to ensure that a healthy and robust stockpile of personal protective equipment (PPE) and critical supplies and equipment (CSE) is available at all times.”
