Residents are being encouraged to share ideas for the upcoming 2018 Provincial Budget.

The Province of Ontario announced on Thursday that they are now accepting proposals for new ideas, as the government will provide up to $5 million to fund up to five ideas.

To be eligible, proposals must be submitted before November 3rd, be for a new fund or pilot project, and show progress or completion by 2019.

Ideas will be brought to the table in January during the first phase of budget talks.
