ON – No tax rate changes in 2011-12 fiscal year budget

In the province’s 2011-12 fiscal year budget brought down on March 29, the Ontario Minister of Finance announced that the province’s deficit for the 2010-11 fiscal year ending March 31, 2011 would be $16.7 billion, or $3 billion lower than forecast in last year’s budget. The change was attributed mainly to decreases in program expenditures.
