Ontario’s fiscal watchdog is set to report today on provincial and federal COVID-19 response measures.

The Financial Accountability Office will release a summary of the measures implemented by the federal and provincial government during the pandemic.

The report was requested by the Ontario legislature’s all-party standing committee on finance and economic affairs.

Both levels of government have dedicated billions of dollars to programs aimed at responding to the pandemic since March.
