- National Defence manages a large and complex budget with major equipment and construction initiatives that need funding over many years.
- That is why we introduced a new funding model in 2017 to ensure that projects get the money they need when they need it.
- This means that money can be re-allocated to support priority projects within a given year, or moved forward to support needs in future years.
- Despite long-term planning, certain projects may not progress as scheduled as timelines shift.
- National Defence continues to work with industry to address the impacts of COVID-19 and deliver on major projects outlined in Strong, Secure, Engaged.
- We will continue to direct committed funding when needed, ensuring the military has the equipment they need to succeed in operations at home and abroad.
- Of the $1.2 billion in lapsed funding last year, $1.06 billion is available for future years and consists of:
- $855.1 million for adjustments to Vote 5 spending on capital equipment and infrastructure;
- $186.7 million for adjustments to Vote 1 and Vote 10 spending;
- $18.6 million in Carry Forward (for operating expenditures); and,
- $0.4 million in proceeds from the disposal of surplus Crown assets.
