Budget Talks

Do you have an idea to make things easier for people in their everyday lives? Submit your project proposal. We’ll put final ideas to a public vote and, if chosen, spend up to $3 million to bring up to eight projects to life.

How it works

  • Phase 1

    Idea submission

    Login or register to submit your project proposal by midnight on December 11 to implement a pilot, study, event or digital service that could help solve one of the 8 focus areas.

  • Phase 2

    Project review

    All projects will be reviewed to ensure they meet the submission criteria, and are within the scope of the Ontario Government to deliver.

  • Phase 3

    Public voting

    Submissions that meet the requirements of the project review will be posted online where you can vote for the projects you would like to see implemented.

  • Phase 4


    We’ll announce which projects will be implemented and provide progress updates throughout the Budget year.
