Realizing Our Prosperity Potential - Third Annual Report, November 2004

Ontario has the potential to achieve prosperity that matches results in the most vibrant economies in the world if its governments, businesses and individuals act on a set of ambitious recommendations made by the Ontario Task Force on Competitiveness, Productivity and Economic Progress. The Task Force argues that Ontario can close the prosperity gap and realize its full economic potential. The key to this is higher productivity – the increased capability of Ontarians to add more value to the physical, human, and capital resources in the province. Last year, in its Second Annual Report, the Task Force concluded that more investment is an important element in raising productivity. This year's report sets out areas where that investment is required. For businesses, it means larger investments in machinery, equipment and software; for governments, it means striking the right balance between spending on current consumption, such as health care and social services and investing for future prosperity, such as infrastructure and education; for individuals, it means investing more in themselves, such as in higher educational achievement.
