The Canadian Press is launching a series of new online features to better understand how the provinces and territories are performing, as well as to help them compete for future federal funding.
In a release, the federal government announced a new website that provides more details on the provinces’ performance and provides insight into the province-level funding pie.
It also unveiled a new tool called the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives that helps provinces and territory officials compare their performance.
The new website, which is designed to help Canadians better understand what’s happening in the federal, provincial and territorial arenas, includes statistics on the economy, health and housing.
The federal website has the same interactive dashboard that was introduced in May to help people get a better understanding of how the federal budget works.
The dashboard shows which provinces have the highest and lowest growth rates for the last four years.
There are several different metrics available, including gross domestic product (GDP), employment and health.
The government says that the new site will also give provinces and territorial leaders a better sense of where the country is headed.
In some areas, like housing and infrastructure, provinces and ridings are in line with the national trend, according to data compiled by the federal website.
But other areas are catching up with the country.
For example, Ontario and Quebec have been outperforming the national average, while Nova Scotia has trailed.
In the case of the provinces, there’s also evidence that there’s a lot of catching up to do.
For instance, Saskatchewan has been outperformed by Newfoundland and Labrador, while Alberta has been surpassed by British Columbia.
The province-by-province breakdown of Canada’s progress shows that some of the worst performing provinces are in Quebec.
Ontario has lost the most jobs in the last three years, while Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan have lost the best jobs.
But the provinces have also seen growth in the employment numbers, which are still low.
