TORONTO – If elected to government in 2022, Ontario Liberals will save hard-working families $300 per vehicle on the purchase of winter tires. The Ontario Liberal Winter Tire Tax Credit will help strengthen road safety and provide real pocketbook relief by refunding $75 per winter tire (or $300 for a set of four tires) if Ontarians make the responsible decision to install winter tires on their vehicles.
“Combining road safety with making life more affordable is a win-win for the people of Ontario,” said Ontario Liberal Party Leader Steven Del Duca. “The arrival of winter weather gives us the chance to remind people to make the responsible decision to install winter tires, and the Ontario Liberal Winter Tire Tax Credit will give them the financial assistance needed to help make it happen.”
For years, road safety advocates have strongly urged motorists to install winter tires in order to prevent unnecessary collisions, injury and even the tragic loss of life. The Ontario Liberal Winter Tire Tax Credit will help to protect people and save money by reducing health care and first responder costs, and help to reduce auto insurance rates for consumers.
“Ontarians need real solutions that help provide immediate relief in their day-to-day lives,” stated Del Duca. “This tax credit will provide that relief while keeping all road-users safe.”
