Today, the Canadian Federal and Provincial Governments offer over 900 different funding programs in the form of low-cost loans and grants to those in need of affordable financing. Annual expenditures for programs administered at both the Federal and Provincial levels exceeded $90,000,000,000 (ninety billion dollars).
