Workspace Renewal Initiative (Implementation Phase)

This approval happened before the increased authorities afforded to the Secretariat as a result of the approval of its investment plan ().

Expenditures include salary (FTEs), contracts (services) and assets (goods), but do not include GST/HST.

Workspace Renewal Initiative (Implementation Phase): Estimated total cost (columns 1 and 2) includes funding for the Secretariat and for Shared Services Canada. Other columns (columns 3 to 7) reflect Secretariat figures only.

Federal tax expenditures

The tax system can be used to achieve public policy objectives through the application of special measures such as low tax rates, exemptions, deductions, deferrals and credits. The Department of Finance Canada publishes cost estimates and projections for these measures each year in the Report on Federal Tax Expenditures. This report also provides detailed background information on tax expenditures, including descriptions, objectives, historical information and references to related federal spending programs. The tax measures presented in this report are the responsibility of the Minister of Finance.
