Transfer Payment Consolidation

Summary

Today, the Hon. Peter Bethlenfalvy, President of the Treasury Board, will announce that the Government of Ontario is helping non-profits, municipalities and other service providers focus more time on delivering programs and services that matter to the people of Ontario by simplifying how they receive government funding. 

The government is putting people back at the centre of public services through the Transfer Payment Consolidation Smart Initiative, which will reduce administrative costs, increase value for money, enhance the client experience and improve service outcomes.

Transfer payment consolidation is part of Ontario’s plan to build smarter government and protect our core programs and services. Our goal is to ensure sustainability, now and for future generations.

Key Messages

  • The Government of Ontario is helping non-profits, municipalities and other service providers focus more time on delivering programs and services that matter to the people of Ontario by simplifying how they receive government funding. 
  • The government is putting people back at the centre of public services through the Transfer Payment Consolidation Smart Initiative, which will reduce administrative costs, increase value for money, enhance the client experience and improve service outcomes.

·         Smarter, more efficient transfer payments will allow the thousands of partners who deliver programs and services on behalf of government to focus their efforts on what they do best — delivering vital services to Ontarians in communities across our province.

·         About 90 per cent of government program spending is transferred to service partners who deliver vital programs. Currently, many different ministries, systems and processes are used to administer this funding, resulting in duplicated effort and wasted time.

·         This is part of our plan to build a smarter government that focuses on outcomes and delivers better results.
