CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 1, 2013) - The Fraser Institute will release a new study on Monday November 4 examining whether Canada's system of equalization payments results in reasonably comparable levels of public services across all provinces.
The study looks at equalization and other "equalization-plus" transfers in 19 areas of provincial government service, from 2005/06 to 2012/13, to determine whether "have" or "have-not" provinces were advantaged by equalization.
A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired at 6:30 a.m. (Eastern) on Monday, November 4.
The full report will also be available as a free PDF download at www.fraserinstitute.org.
