Total revenues for 2012–13 Planned Results have been restated to the correct amount of $0.1M. The Departmental net financial position for 2011–12 Actual has been restated due to a reinterpretation of the application of Treasury Board Accounting Standards as they relate to the calculation of amounts due from the Consolidated Revenue Fund.

The $66.0M change between Planned Results vs. Actual Expenses is mostly due to savings achieved through reduced spending on management and administration, travel, and professional services, as well as administrative efficiencies in delivering grants and contributions programs. The $73.8M change between 2012–13 vs. 2011–12 Actual Expenses is mostly due to a decrease in salaries and employee benefits resulting from workforce adjustment costs expensed in the prior year, and a decrease in costs associated with the accumulation and liquidation of severance pay due to changes in some collective agreements, as well as savings achieved through the implementation of business transformation initiatives and administrative efficiencies.

The Agency receives most of its funding through annual parliamentary appropriations. Almost all revenue generated from Programs is non-respendable and earned on behalf of Government. All cash received by the Agency is deposited to the Consolidated Revenue Fund, and all cash disbursements made by the Agency are paid from it.

Total assets were $221.7M, an increase of 20% ($36.7M) in comparison to the previous year’s total of $185.0M. The increase was primarily due to the increased amount required from the consolidated revenue fund for liabilities. Due from consolidated revenue fund represented $90.3M (41%); accounts receivable and advances represented $3.5M (1%); and tangible capital assets represented $127.9M (58%) of total assets.

Total liabilities were $120.7M, a decrease of 15% ($21.4M) in comparison to the previous year’s total of $142.2M. The decrease was primarily due to the cessation and payments of severance benefits arising from changes to collective bargaining agreements. Accounts payable and accrued liabilities represented $94.9M (79%); vacation pay and compensatory leave represented $9.5M (8%); employee severance benefits represented $13.8M (11%); and other liabilities represented $2.5M (2%) of total liabilities.
