Honourable Doug Ford to Address Municipal Conference

Good Roads Welcomes the Premier of Ontario to Address Municipal Officials During Annual Conference

April 14, 2023, Oakville, ON – Ontario’s Premier, Doug Ford, is set to address more than 1,500 attendees during the 2023 Good Roads Conference taking place at the Fairmont Royal York in downtown Toronto.

The annual conference brings together different levels of government from Ontario over four days focusing on municipal transportation, and infrastructure topics.  With over 80 sessions, a variety of speakers, study tours and a sold-out exhibitor hall, the Good Roads Conference is one of the most historic and largest municipal conferences in the province.

“The importance of this conference is the connectivity our roads give us in building sustainable and healthy communities. Safe roads are crucial to healthy communities and our elected officials working in conjunction with municipal staff, such as public works and engineering professionals is a perfect combination to create safer roads.” said Scott Butler, Executive Director, Good Roads. “Our conference is the gateway to connecting the right people and making safer solutions and infrastructure. Take for example our Rural Road Safety Initiative, where we are looking at the most dangerous intersections and creating road audits to improve the incident rate.” continued Mr. Butler.

Premier Doug Ford is scheduled to take the stage on Monday, April 17th at 9:00am. You must be registered to attend this event. For media passes, please contact Rachel Swiednicki.

Good Roads is a municipal association concerned with the advancement of roads and other infrastructure in Ontario. Based in Oakville, Ontario, we have been devoted to the cause of better roads since 1894. Originally known as the Ontario Good Roads Association (and still using that name corporately), we have more than 450 member governments, including most of Ontario’s municipalities and a growing number of First Nations, as well as dozens of affiliated corporate members in the transportation and infrastructure sectors. Our purpose, in part, is to connect our members to each other, to other levels of government, and to relevant companies in the private sector. Our members look to us for training, knowledge, political advocacy, and answers to their most pressing problems. Good Roads is resolutely independent.
