The Provincial Government
The Provincial governments are responsible for issues that are explicitly given to them in Canada's written constitution the Constitution Act, 1867.
Through the provincial legislature, the provincial government has the power to enact or amend laws and programs related to:
- natural resources and environment
- property and civil rights in the province
- administration of justice
- social services
The province directly funds or transfers money to institutions to ensure the delivery of these important responsibilites, as well as provincial highways, culture and tourism, prisons, post-secondary education, and other services to Ontarians.
The provincial legislature also has power over all municipal institutions in the province.
