    • Note: Totals may not add up due to rounding.
    • 1 The terms used for accounting items referred to in this annex have been harmonized with the terminology used elsewhere in this report and may therefore differ from those appearing in the Public Accounts of Canada.
    • 2 This interest includes interest accrued on overdue accounts receivable.
    • 3 Budget 2009 included various temporary measures to support workers affected by the economic downtown. The cost of these measures was funded by the Consolidated Revenue Fund and was credited to the Employment Insurance Operating Account in addition to the other revenues. The negative amount in 2012/2013 corresponds to an amount that was recovered from a credit overeported in prior years, which was based on actual final cost of these measures.
    • 4 Expenditures reported in Chapter II of this report are based on administrative data and may differ from the ones reported in the financial statements of the Employment Insurance Operating Account that are included in the Public Accounts of Canada, due to methodological differences.
    • 5 Includes parental benefits paid to biological parents and adoptive parents.
    • 6 Includes compassionate care benefits and benefits for parents of critically ill children.
    • 7 These benefits correspond to transfer payments to provinces and territories related to labour market development agreements, net of previous fiscal years' overcontribution.
    • 8 These repayments correspond to benefit repayments from higher income claimants.
