Explanation of the main variances between the 2013–2014 actual and planned revenue

Contributing to the variances across business lines is the fact that planned revenues established in the 2013–2014 RPP were based on cash accounting (revenues recognized when applications are received) while 2013–2014 actual revenues are calculated on an accrual basis (revenues recognized when applications are processed), creating timing discrepancies mostly for the Temporary Economic Residents.

The variance between planned and actual revenues for passport fees is attributable to a change in the fee structure effective July 2, 2013. Fees (excluding consular fees) increased from $62 to $95 for the five-year passport and a new fee of $135 was introduced for the ten-year passport.

A new fee for biometrics for some visitors which was not initially planned as part of the 2013–2014 RPP was also introduced in 2013–2014.
