In 2016, supply and services accounted for 10% of the adult education budget at $91 million. Quebec has seen its supply and services under adult education skyrocket to a high of $27.3 million in 1989 (similar to other Quebec adult education numbers) only to fall drastically to $6.6 million in 1993 and stay relatively flat.
The biggest spenders in 2016 were Ontario ($35 million), British Columbia ($26.8 million), Alberta ($19.1 million) and Quebec ($7.4 million). Manitoba has seen two major spikes in supply and services, with $0.5 million in 2000 to $1.9 million by 2002 and $1.7 million in 2013 to $2.8 million by 2016. Saskatchewan shows a different trajectory, with a spike between 1991 to 2008 ($1.1 million floor and $1.6 million ceiling), only to fall into a band between $0.5-0.7 million in 2010-16, likely due to a pressure caused by the 2008 economic downturn.
