The global economic downturn has had a proound impact on Ontario. The province isacing once-in-a-generation economic challenges.We at the Ontario Chamber o Commerce (OCC) are optimistic that Ontario will not onlyweather the storm, but emerge rom this period o economic uncertainty stronger and morecompetitivei we work collectively to create the right conditions.This paper builds on the ve core priorities identied in
Emerging Stronger: A Transormative Agenda or Ontario
, drated in partnership with the Mowat Centre and Leger Marketing. Thisis the rst publication in our subsequent
Emerging Stronger 
paper series.
 A Federal Agenda or Ontario
examines Ontario’s relationship with Canada and the ederalgovernment’s role in achieving these ve priorities. It points to the considerable imbalancesin the national economy and national public policy that are making it more dicult orOntario businesses to compete and generate wealth.
 A Federal Agenda or Ontario
makes  recommendations that, i implemented, would allowOntario to retain and build on its competitiveness in the global economy.At their core, the recommendations provide direction to the ederal government on the roleit can play in growing Ontario’s economy.This paper does not ask the ederal government to spend more. It does not pit onegovernment against another. Its goal is to provide an evidence-based case or changes tosome core ederal public policies.The ederal government has done much to help Ontario and Ontario businesses during therecent downturn. The bailout o the auto sector and the harmonized sales tax are two keyexamples. Our  recommendations are a roadmap to urther progress.The OCC and its members are calling or ederal public policies that reect the new reality othe Canadian economy. We are also calling on all Ontarians and Ontario businesses to takeup this cause with us; should Ontario decide to speak with one voice, it will be dicult orothers not to listen.Allan O’DettePresident & CEOOntario Chamber o Commerce
