A date has been set to bring down the Ontario budget.

Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy says he will deliver it on March 23rd.

Previously, the Ontario government said it would introduce the budget before the end of March.

Bethlenfalvy says the government has held a number of pre-budget consultations over the past two months, including a stop in Kenora, and says people shared what they think are the next steps the government can take to build a strong Ontario.
