The report tracks which level of government picked up the tab for every COVID-19 program announced through Dec. 31, 2020, and also analyzes how the provinces are spending their share of federal transfers. Overall, 92 per cent ($343 billion) of COVID-19 direct spending initiatives, excluding liquidity and unallocated funds, came from the feds––compared to eight per cent ($31 billion) from provincial governments.

Wondering about the COVID-19 recovery spending in the province where you live? Our interactive map allows users to explore how much money each province is spending per person on its COVID-19 recovery plan, what funds each province currently has access to (and may not be utilizing), and which government is paying for the recovery initiatives.

Ce rapport est disponible en français.
