Total Authorities were higher than Planned Spending primarily due to: funding for Aboriginal Head Start Urban and Northern Communities; funding to support the establishment of the Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation; funding for Ebola Preparedness and Response Initiatives to Protect Canadians at Home and Abroad; and the inclusion of additional authorities for the operating budget carry forward.

The 2015–16 actual spending decreased from the previous year expenditures primarily due to PHAC making the final payment to provinces and territories under the Hepatitis C Health Care Services Program in 2014–15.

Planned Spending will increase in 2016–17 and subsequently will decrease in 2017–18 primarily due to the funding profiles for Ebola Preparedness and Response Initiatives to Protect Canadians at Home and Abroad and to Acquire Medical Countermeasures for Smallpox and Anthrax.

2018–19 578,851,249 523,270,379 43,894,006 11,686,864

The changes in spending were associated primarily with issuing the final payment for the Hepatitis C Health Care Services Program in 2014–15 and the introduction and sunsetting of some temporary PHAC programs, including Ebola Preparedness and Response Initiatives to Protect Canadians at Home and Abroad, funding to Acquire Medical Countermeasures for Smallpox and Anthrax, and the Government of Canada's Provision of Essential Federal Services to the Toronto 2015 Pan American and Parapan American Games.

PHAC will continue to examine the level of resources required for priority initiatives and seek renewal as appropriate.

PHAC’s total actual expenses were $598,909,008 in 2015–16. There was a decrease of $431,147 (0.1%) compared to planned results for 2015–16.

There was a decrease of $60,939,305 (9.2%) in actual expenses from 2014–15 to 2015–16 primarily due to the completion and final payment of the Hepatitis C Health Care Services Program in 2014–15. This decrease is offset by additional expenses in 2015–16, mostly attributed to the Ebola Preparedness and Response Initiatives to Protect Canadians at Home and Abroad and the Acquisition of Medical Countermeasures for Smallpox and Anthrax.

PHAC's total actual revenues, which resulted primarily from the Shared Services Partnership with Health Canada, were $13,723,154 in 2015–16 representing a decrease of $1,099,259 (7.4%) from the prior year actual revenues.

The difference between planned results and actual revenues was primarily due to the recognition of Health Canada payments as revenues to PHAC for services provided to them under the Shared Services Partnership Agreement and not Revenues Earned on Behalf of Government.

  • Employee future benefits represented $12,811,064 (15%); and

Total liabilities were $85,020,443, an increase of $5,693,678 (7.2%) over the previous year's total of $79,326,765. The variance was primarily due to an increase ($9,168,119) in accounts payable and accrued liabilities. This increase was offset by a:

  • 1% decrease in vacation pay and compensatory leave;
  • 6% decrease in employee future benefits; and
  • 34% decrease in other liabilities.

Of the total liabilities:

  • Accounts payable and accrued liabilities represented $56,539,099 (66%);

Total assets:

  • Due from Consolidated Revenue Fund represented $56,993,612 (32%);
  • Accounts receivable and advances represented $4,874,000 (3%); and
  • Tangible capital assets represented $115,396,429 (65%).

Total assets were $176,735,466, an increase of $993,308 (0.6%) over the previous year's total of $175,742,158. This variance is primarily due to an increase in funds due from the Consolidated Revenue Fund, variations from employee future benefits and offset by a decrease in tangible capital assets, explained by accumulated amortization net of new acquisitions.

Of the total assets:

  • Due from Consolidated Revenue Fund represented $56,993,612 (32%);
  • Accounts receivable and advances represented $4,874,000 (3%); and
  • Tangible capital assets represented $115,396,429 (65%).
