I am pleased to provide you with British Columbia's transfer payment amounts for 2020-21 in accordance with the Federal-Provincial Fiscal Arrangements Act (the Act) and relevant regulations.
Total major transfers to British Columbia for 2020-21 will round to $7,679 million, an increase of $263 million from 2019-20. The first estimates of your province's Canada Health Transfer and Canada Social Transfer payments for 2020-21 are $5,651.2 million and $2,027.7 million respectively. In accordance with the legislated formula under the Act and its regulations, British Columbia does not qualify for an Equalization payment for 2020-21.
Enclosed for your information is a table presenting the 2020-21 major transfer amounts for each province and territory. The table will be provided to your officials and posted on the Department of Finance's website in the context of the December 2019 Finance Ministers' Meeting.
I look forward to working collaboratively with you to advance our shared priorities that matter to Canadians.
