Note: In 2012–13 there was a change in the procedure for the presentation of the variation of deferred revenues. In previous years the variation of deferred revenues was reallocated between lines of business. The variation of deferred revenues is now presented as a separate item under Other Revenues. The figures for 2010–11 and 2011–12 have been restated.
Explanation of the main variances compared with planned revenues
Planned revenues established in the 2012–13 RPP were based on cash accounting (revenues recognized when applications are received) while actual revenues are calculated on an accrual basis (revenues recognized when applications are processed). This creates timing discrepancies, which explains in part variations between forecasted and actual revenues and most of the variations under the Permanent Economic Residents program. The following provides more information on other significant variances:
- Family and Discretionary Immigration: The revenue for applications under this category is much higher than the planned amount because of a redesign of the program to make it more efficient and to reduce backlog.
- Right of Citizenship and Citizenship Services: The variation compared with the planned amount is due to a decrease in the number of applications processed. This is due to changes implemented to standardize the preparation of citizenship grant applications and to changes to the Citizenship Regulations related to up-front language evidence.
- Migration Control and Security Management: The revenues for visas and visa extensions are higher because of volume increases.
