Future-oriented Statement of Operations For the year ended March 31, 2010

Statement of Management Responsibility

Responsibility for the compilation, content, and presentation of the accompanying Future-oriented Statement of Operations and accompanying notes to the financial statement for the year ended March 31, 2010 rests with the Public Health Agency of Canada (Agency) management. The Future-oriented Statement of Operations has been prepared by management in accordance with Treasury Board accounting policies which are consistent with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles for the public sector. The future-oriented financial information is submitted in Part III of Estimates (Report on Plans and Priorities), and will be used in the Agency's Departmental Performance Report to compare with actual results.

Management is responsible for the integrity and objectivity of the future-oriented financial information and for the underlying assumptions and estimates which are based on information available and known to management as at January 14, 2009, and assumes a continuation of current governmental priorities and consistency in Agency's mandate and strategic objectives. This future-oriented financial information is based on these assumptions, best estimates, and judgement and gives due consideration to materiality. At the time of preparation of this statement, management believes the estimates and assumptions to be fair and reasonable. However, as with all such estimates and assumptions, there is a measure of uncertainty.

Financial results for 2009-2010 will vary from the forecast information presented and these variations may be material.

The Agency has prepared this Future-oriented Statement of Operations as part of a pilot project and, as a result, changes in assumptions, presentation and accounting policies may occur as the project unfolds.
