Distribution of federal revenues and expenditures by province: YM32-5/2017-1E-PDF

"The federal government collects revenues from the residents of all Canadian provinces. It also incurs expenditures and implements programs that are widely available to all Canadians, regardless of their province of residence. The distribution of federal revenues and expenditures across Canada is often considered in terms of net expenditures. If the federal government collects more revenues than it incurs expenditures in a given province, the province in question is considered a net contributor. Conversely, if the federal government spends more than it collects in a given province, that province is considered a net recipient. Individual parts of the country - by they cities, regions or provinces - are necessarily in one or the other of these situations according to their level of economic prosperity, their wealth in terms of natural resources or various strategic considerations."--Introduction.
