The Canada Social Transfer is the Canadian government's transfer payment program in support of post-secondary education, social assistance and social services, including early childhood development and early learning and childcare. It was made independent from the Canada Health and Social Transfer program on April 1, 2004 to allow for greater accountability and transparency for federal health funding. In 2008/2009, the program transferred $10.6 billion in cash to the provinces and a further $8.5 billion in tax points.[1]

The program was originally combined with the Canada Health Transfer in a program called the Canada Health and Social Transfer.
