Flaherty is expected to announce changes to the equalization program, the nearly $12-billion federal wealth-sharing plan in which the richer provinces provide funds to poorer provinces to ensure they can provide basic government services.

The meeting in Mississauga, Ont., could have particular significance to Ontario. With its struggling manufacturing sector, Ontario is on the brink of becoming a have-not province, meaning it would qualify for the equalization program.
