Compared to the beginning of this year, provincial governments have kicked in more money to combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and are sitting on less unspent federal money.

Read the study, Still Picking up the Tab: Federal and provincial government COVID-19 spending, which updates a similar January analysis.
