Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/24/2014 -- The Canadian social security system covers various programs, many of which are run by the provinces and territories. In general, benefits are similar across all provinces and territories; however, Québec implements its own pension plan. The government provides financial support to provincial and territorial governments through four main transfer programs – the Canada Health Transfer (CHT), the Canada Social Transfer (CST), and Equalization and Territorial Formula Financing (TFF) – to help them provide social programs and services to citizens. Federal support to provinces and territories increased from CAD41.91 billion (US$40.55 billion) in 2005–2006 to CAD62.3 billion (US$60.29 billion) in 2013–2014. Private employee benefits are gaining popularity, and many companies offer private benefit plans for employees to supplement the government-sponsored hospital and medical plans.
