abstract

  • The 1995 federal budget meets the financial markets' expectations by proposing deep funding cuts and defining a smaller federal presence in several sectors of Canadian society. The most significant aspect of the budget for health care is the creation of the Canada Health and Social Transfer, which merges federal funding for health, post-secondary education and social assistance into one block grant. Provinces will be free to shift funds among these programs.
