The changes in spending from 2015–16 to 2016–17 are primarily due to the transfer of the assessed contribution to the Pan American Health Organization to Global Affairs Canada, and the funding re-profile for Ebola Preparedness and Response Initiatives to Protect Canadians at Home and Abroad.

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

Planned spending in 2017–18 and 2018–19 will decrease mainly due to the funding re-profile of the Ebola Preparedness and Response Initiatives to Protect Canadians at Home and Abroad, change of funding profile for the Medical Countermeasures for Small Pox and Anthrax preparedness, and the sunsetting of the Single Window Initiative. This decrease will be offset by a slight increase in new funding to improve vaccination coverage rates in Canada, harmonize concussion management guidelines across Canada, and help raise awareness of men’s health issues.

The reduction of actual spending in 2016–17 is primarily due to the transfer of the assessed contribution to the Pan American Health Organization to Global Affairs Canada, and the funding re-profile for Ebola Preparedness and Response Initiatives to Protect Canadians at Home and Abroad. The 2015–16 actual spending decreased from the previous year expenditures primarily due to final PHAC payments to provinces and territories under the Hepatitis C Health Care Services Program in 2014–15.

PHAC's 2016–17 total actual expenses were $583,067,773 which was a decrease of $37,398,782 (6%) compared to 2016–17 planned results.

There was a decrease of $15,640,009 (2.6%) in actual expenses from 2015–16 to 2016–17 primarily due to the transfer of assessed contribution to the Pan American Health Organization to Global Affairs Canada, and re-profile to the Ebola Preparedness and Response Initiatives to Protect Canadians at Home and Abroad in 2016–17.

PHAC's total actual revenues, primarily from the Shared Services Partnership with HC, were $14,252,180 in 2016–17 representing an increase of $529,026 (3.9%) from the prior year actual revenues.

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