Complete text - 2018–19 Estimates

Introduction

Federal departments, agencies and Crown corporations deliver programs and services for Canadians. In order for federal government organizations to operate, Parliament must grant these organizations authority to spend.

While spending is often announced in a federal budget, spending authority is actually granted through legislation passed by Parliament. Roughly one third of federal government spending is approved by Parliament on an annual basis. These expenditures are authorized through an appropriation act and are called “voted” expenditures. When authorized through other legislation, they are called “statutory” expenditures.

The Main Estimates set out the expenditure plans of government organizations for the upcoming year as approved by Treasury Board. In previous years, the House of Commons Standing Orders required that the Main Estimates be tabled on or before March 1. In practice, the Main Estimates were tabled in mid or late February. As a result, Main Estimates could not reflect the Budget commitments for the same year, as the Budget is usually tabled in February or March. This timing impeded the ability of Parliament to scrutinize the Government’s spending plans in a coherent manner.

In June 2017, the House of Commons approved a motion to change Standing Order 81 which allows for the tabling of an Interim Estimates and delays the deadline for the tabling of Main Estimates to April 16. These changes address the government’s commitment to provide more coherent information to Parliament and to align the federal budget and the estimates.

On February 12, 2018, the Government tabled an Interim Estimates to support Parliament’s scrutiny of the first appropriation act of 2018–19, interim supply, which provides enough spending authorities for the first three months of the fiscal year.

These Estimates

These Main Estimates present financial requirements for the full 2018–19 fiscal year, including (not in addition to) amounts already shown in Interim Estimates. Annex 1 to these estimates is a chart listing new spending for 2018–19 as announced in table A2.11 of the 2018 Federal Budget. Incremental funding shown in the chart will be provided through a centrally managed Budget Implementation vote. Through this vote, these Main Estimates will include 100% of Budget 2018 incremental spending measures, improving Budget-Estimates alignment and eliminating some of the time lag between announcement and implementation of programs. The funds will be held centrally until supporting policy and program approvals are in place. Allocations will be regularly posted online and reported in Estimates documents along with allocations from other Treasury Board managed central votes.

Part I of this document, the Government Expenditure Plan, gives an overview of spending requirements for 2018–19 and comparisons to previous fiscal years.

Part II of this document, the Main Estimates, provides information on estimated spending by each federal organization requesting authority to spend through a 2018–19 appropriation bill.

Part III of the Estimates consists of Departmental Plans and Departmental Results Reports. It is anticipated that the Departmental Plans, which show an organization’s priorities and expected results for the next three years, will be tabled on the same day as these Estimates.

For this exercise, the President of the Treasury Board tables a document in Parliament that includes:

  • A summary of the government’s financial requirements;
  • An overview of major transfer payments;
  • A comparison of the Budget 2018 forecast to planned expenditures in the 2018–19 Estimates;
  • Highlights of new authority requirements and structural changes;
  • Funding details by organization;
  • Annex on new spending in Budget 2018; and
  • A proposed schedule to the appropriation bill to be approved by Parliament.

In addition to the tabled document, the following supplemental information is also available online:

  • Statutory forecasts;
  • Budgetary expenditures by standard objects;
  • Expenditures by program or purpose;
  • A graphical summary of financial highlights;
  • Allocations from the Budget Implementation vote; and
  • Pilot project on a purpose-based vote structure.

The following terminology is used throughout this document:

  • 2016–17 Expenditures refer to the actual expenditures published in the 2017 Public Accounts (Volume II);
  • 2017–18 Estimates to date include the aggregate of the requirements reported in the Main Estimates and Supplementary Estimates A, B and C of that fiscal year;
  • Budgetary expenditures include the cost of servicing the public debt; operating and capital expenditures; transfer payments to other levels of government, organizations or individuals; and payments to Crown corporations;
  • Non-budgetary expenditures – or loans, investments and advances – are outlays that represent changes in the composition of the Government’s financial assets. Negative figures indicate that recoveries exceed expenditures;
  • Supplementary Estimates present information on additional spending requirements which were either not sufficiently developed in time for inclusion in the Main Estimates, or have subsequently been refined to account for developments in particular programs and services;
  • Voted appropriations are those for which parliamentary authority is sought through an appropriation bill;
  • Statutory expenditures are those authorized by Parliament through legislation other than an appropriation act; forecasts are provided for Parliament’s information.

Summary of Estimates

Voted Expenditures

These Estimates support the government’s request to Parliament for authority to expend through annual appropriations:

  • $112.9 billion for budgetary expenditures – operating and capital expenditures; transfer payments to other levels of government, organizations or individuals; and payments to Crown corporations; and
  • $57.1 million for non-budgetary expenditures – net outlays and receipts related to loans, investments and advances.

Significant changes in voted spending from 2017–18 include:

  • The Budget Implementation vote to provide new funding for Budget 2018 initiatives;
  • The ramping up of spending for Budget 2017 priorities such as innovation, a national housing strategy, early learning and child care; and
  • Funding related to spending announced after Budget 2017, such as the 2018 G7 Summit and support of Canadaʼs new Defence Policy: Strong, Secure, Engaged.

Statutory Expenditures

Forecasts of statutory spending by departments are included in these Estimates to provide a more complete picture of their total estimated expenditures. Of these forecasts, $163.1 billion is for budgetary expenditures including the cost of servicing the public debt. The $163.1 billion does not include payments from the Employment Insurance Operating Account or expenditures legislated through the Income Tax Act (such as the Canada Child Benefit). Net statutory expenditures of $542.5 million are forecasted for loans, investments and advances.

Significant changes in statutory spending from 2017–18 include:

  • increases in major transfer payments, most notably elderly benefits, fiscal equalization and the Canada Health Transfer;
  • an increase in interest on unmatured debt; and
  • an increase in funding for home care and mental health services, as set out in Budget 2017.

Initiatives may have both voted and statutory expenditures. For example, planned expenditures in 2018–19 for the 2018 G7 Summit include $341.6 million in voted expenditures and $10.3 million in statutory expenditures for Employee Benefit Plans.

Composition of Estimates

The majority of expenditures in the 2018–19 Main Estimates are transfer payments – payments made to other levels of government, individuals and other organizations. Transfer payments make up approximately 61.9% of expenditures or $170.84 billion. Operating and capital expenditures (including the Treasury Board Budget Implementation vote) account for approximately 29.8% of expenditures or $82.29 billion, while public debt charges are approximately 8.3% of expenditures or $22.84 billion.

Public Debt Charges

Total public debt charges are approximately $22.8 billion, a projected increase of $1.3 billion or 6.3% from previous Main Estimates and $1.7 billion more than actual expenditures for 2016–17. The change largely reflects an increase in interest rates forecasted by private sector economists, consistent with Budget 2018. Public debt charges are comprised of interest on unmatured debt of $16.6 billion and other interest costs of $6.2 billion. Interest on unmatured debt represents the interest resulting from certificates of indebtedness issued by the Government of Canada that have not yet become due. Other interest costs include interest on liabilities for federal public service pension plans, deposit and trust accounts and other specified purpose accounts.

Major Transfer Payments

Major transfer payments – significant transfers to other levels of government and transfers to persons – account for a large proportion of the government’s total expenditure framework.

Forecast expenditures for major transfer payments are included in the total budgetary Main Estimates of the responsible organization, with two exceptions. One is Employment Insurance, which is reported through the Employment Insurance Operating Account and is separate from any of the appropriated organizations listed in these Main Estimates. The other exception is Children’s Benefits, details of which are included in the Department of Financeʼs Tax Expenditures and Evaluations report.

Transfers to Other Levels of Government

Major statutory transfers to other levels of government are projected to total $73.45 billion in 2017–18, an increase of $3.44 billion over the previous yearʼs Main Estimates.

The Canada Health Transfer (CHT) is a federal transfer provided to provinces and territories in support of health care. CHT support is subject to the five conditions of the Canada Health Act: universality; comprehensiveness; portability; accessibility; and public administration, and the prohibitions against extra-billing and user fees. Starting in 2017–18, growth of the CHT is based on a 3-year moving average of nominal GDP growth, with funding guaranteed to increase by at least 3% per year. In 2018–19, the CHT will increase by $1.4 billion from the 2017–18 amount to a total of nearly $38.6 billion. The increase of $1.4 billion in 2018–19 represents the legislated annual program growth calculated by multiplying the 2017–18 level of $37.1 billion by the 3.86 per cent escalator derived using the relevant GDP data. Since 2014–15, the CHT is distributed on an equal per capita cash basis.

Fiscal Equalization refers to unconditional transfer payments to enable less prosperous provincial governments to provide their residents with public services that are reasonably comparable to those in other provinces, at reasonably comparable levels of taxation. These payments will total almost $19.0 billion in 2018–19, an increase of $704.6 million from the 2017–18 amount of $18.3 billion. The growth path of Equalization is based on a three-year moving average of nominal gross domestic product (GDP) growth. The increase of $704.6 million in 2018–19 represents the legislated annual program growth calculated by multiplying the 2017–18 level of $18.3 billion by the 3.86 per cent escalator derived using the relevant data for the GDP moving average.

The Canada Social Transfer is a federal transfer to provinces and territories in support of social assistance and social services, post-secondary education and programs for children. The legislated 3 per cent growth rate results in an increase of $412.5 million to nearly $14.2 billion in 2018–19.

The Territorial Formula Financing Program provides unconditional federal transfers that allow territorial governments to provide their residents with public services comparable to those offered by provincial governments, at comparable levels of taxation. The transfers are based on a formula that fills the gap between a proxy of territorial expenditure requirements and a territory’s revenue-raising capacity. These payments will be nearly $3.8 billion in 2018–19, $103.5 million more than in 2017–18.

The Gas Tax Fund provides predictable, long-term, stable funding for Canadian municipalities to help them build and revitalize their local public infrastructure while creating jobs and long term prosperity. Starting in 2014–15, the Fund is indexed at 2 per cent per year with increases applied in $100 million increments from 2014–15 to 2023–24.

Budget 2017 committed $11 billion over 10 years to provinces and territories to improve access to mental health and addiction services, as well as home and community care services. In 2017–18, $300 million of this funding was provided to provinces and territories. In 2018–19, $850 million of this funding is available to provinces and territories for Home Care and Mental Health – $400 million for home care, $250 million for mental health, and $200 million for home care infrastructure.

The Additional Fiscal Equalization Offset Payment to Nova Scotia is a payment related to its 2005 Offshore Accord. This payment ensures that the province’s Equalization payments are not reduced due to offshore oil and gas revenues entering the Equalization formula. This is derived by applying the Equalization formula with and without offshore oil and gas revenues and comparing the resulting Equalization payments. The province will receive $18.1 million in Additional Fiscal Equalization Offset Payments for 2018–19, a decrease of $1.9 million compared with the amount for 2017–18, reflecting lower offshore revenues being collected by the province.

Additional Fiscal Equalization Payments to Nova Scotia are payments related to its 2005 Offshore Accord. Following the introduction of a new formula for Equalization in 2007, Nova Scotia was guaranteed that, on a cumulative basis beginning in 2008–09 over the lifetime of the Accord, the new formula would not reduce its Equalization payments and 2005 Offshore Accord payments when compared with what the province would have received under the formula that was in place when it signed its 2005 Offshore Accord. As a result of the calculation being cumulative, Nova Scotia can receive payments or repay amounts. The initial estimate for 2017–18 was a recovery of $27.9 million, and final estimate made one year later with updated data is for a payment of $16.4 million. The initial estimate for 2018–19 is for a recovery of $113.2 million, a reflection of the current Equalization formula being expected to provide a larger amount than the formula in place when it signed its 2005 Offshore Accord. The final computation for 2018-19 will be made in December 2018.

The Youth Allowance Recovery relates to tax points transferred to the province of Quebec for the Youth Allowance program, which has since expired. The equivalent value of the tax point reduction is recovered each year from the province of Quebec. The change in recoveries for the Youth Allowances Recovery Program is entirely due to year-over-year changes to the value of federal personal income taxes, the recovery being a percentage of these taxes. For 2018–19, the forecast recovery of $909.8 million is $21.2 million higher than the forecast in the 2017–18 Main Estimates and $37.6 million higher than that in the 2017–18 Supplementary Estimates (C) due to higher forecast levels of federal personal income taxes.

Alternative Payments for Standing Programs represent recoveries from Quebec of an additional tax point transfer above and beyond the tax point transfer computed under the Youth Allowances Recovery. The change in recoveries for the Alternative Payments for Standing Programs is entirely due to year-over-year changes to the value of federal personal income taxes, the recovery being a percentage of these taxes. For 2018–19, the forecast recovery of $4.1 billion is $63.7 million higher than the forecast in the 2017–18 Main Estimates and $135.1 million higher than that in 2017–18 Supplementary Estimates (C) due to higher forecast levels of federal personal income taxes.

Transfers to Persons

Elderly benefits include Old Age Security, Guaranteed Income Supplement, and Allowance payments. Elderly benefit payments are expected to be $53.7 billion in 2018–19, an increase of $2.5 billion over the 2017–18 Main Estimates and $5.5 billion more than actual expenditures in 2016–17. The rise is due to expected increases in the number of beneficiaries and in the average monthly benefit amount.

The Canada Child Benefit took effect on July 1, 2016, replacing the old federal system of child benefits that included the Universal Child Care Benefit, the Canada Child Tax Benefit, and the National Child Benefit supplement. In the 2017 Fall Economic Statement, the Government proposed to index the Canada Child Benefit as of July 1, 2018. As a result of indexation, for the 2018–19 benefit year, the maximum annual benefit amounts will be increased to $6,496 from $6,400 per child under the age of 6, and to $5,481 from $5,400 per child aged 6 through 17. The Child Disability Benefit will also be indexed to inflation as of July 1, 2018.

Child Benefits payments are forecasted to total $23.7 billion in 2018–19. These amounts include the Canada Child Benefit and the Child Disability Benefit amounts. They also include payments for late claims under the old system of child benefits, which were replaced by the Canada Child Benefit partway through fiscal year 2016–17 (i.e., as of July 1, 2016).

Employment Insurance provides temporary financial assistance to unemployed Canadians who have lost their job through no fault of their own, while they look for work or upgrade their skills. Employment Insurance is reported through the Employment Insurance Operating Account and is separate from any of the appropriated organizations listed in these Main Estimates.

Items Not Included in the Estimates

The budget forecast covers the complete scope of the Government’s fiscal framework, including revenues, program and tax expenditures, statutory expenditures such as Employment Insurance benefits, and provision for future obligations such as public service pensions.

The scope of the estimates is narrower than the budget forecast. The main purpose of the estimates is to support Parliament’s consideration of the appropriation bills, which are the legal instruments for authorizing certain payments.

The estimates are therefore focused on the government’s cash needs which require parliamentary appropriations and exclude certain items reported in the Budget. Costs related to Employment Insurance benefits and Children’s benefits are the largest components of the items excluded from the estimates.

Most Employment Insurance costs are paid directly out of the Employment Insurance Operating Account, rather than a departmental appropriation, and are therefore not specifically included in estimates. Revenues and expenses associated with the Employment Insurance Operating Account are incorporated in the budget, as are other consolidated specified purpose accounts.

The Canada Child Benefit is legislated through the Income Tax Act and is considered an expenditure for government financial reporting purposes. Parliament does not authorize annual spending for this item or for any other tax expenditure or refundable tax credit.

Other items in this category where spending is not subject to annual parliamentary approval are expenses of crown corporations (who spend the revenues that they generate) as well as revenues credited to departmental appropriations ("net voting" authorities).

Differences in Accounting Basis

The budget is presented on a full accrual basis, while the estimates are presented on a modified cash basis. The accrual basis of accounting recognizes income when it is earned and expenses when they are incurred, whereas cash accounting recognizes them when the cash or its equivalent has been paid.

As a result, certain items will be reported differently between the two publications. Examples of such items include the remediation of contaminated sites and the depreciation of capital assets. This category also includes other items, such as bad debt expenses and certain costs related to pensions and benefits for which cash disbursements are expected to be made in subsequent years but for which expenses are accrued in the current year.

Assumed lapse of operating and transfer payments authorities

The budget forecast also recognizes that some amount of spending included in the estimates will lapse at the end of the fiscal year, and either be reprofiled to future years or simply remain unspent.

These lapses are influenced by many factors, such as contract and project delays, uncommitted authorities in the Treasury Board managed central votes, as well as departmental funds management practices to ensure that spending does not exceed the authorities approved by Parliament.

Other

This category captures a range of forecasted authorities for measures and mechanisms that have been approved in principle off cycle or in previous budgets, or that have already been authorized under existing legislation, and that are expected to appear in a Supplementary Estimates or the Public Accounts. This category also includes adjustments to account for rounding.

Estimates by Organization

123 organizations are represented in the 2018–19 Estimates. More information about each organization can be found in Part II – Main Estimates.

Structure of these Estimates

The basic structural units of the Estimates are the votes. The following types of votes appear in the Estimates:

A program expenditures vote is used when there is no requirement for either a separate “capital expenditures” vote or a “grants and contributions” vote because neither equals or exceeds $5 million. In this case, all expenditures are charged to a single vote.

An operating expenditures vote is used when there is also a requirement for either a “capital expenditures” vote or a “grants and contributions” vote or both – that is, when expenditures of either type equal or exceed $5 million. Otherwise, the expenditures are included in the "program expenditures" vote.

A capital expenditures vote is used when the aggregate of capital expenditures equals or exceeds $5 million. Capital expenditures are those made for the acquisition or development of items that are classified as tangible capital assets as defined by government accounting policies, for example: for the acquisition of real property, infrastructure, machinery or equipment, or for purposes of constructing or developing assets, where an organization expects to draw upon its own labour and materials, or employs professional services or other services or goods. Expenditure items in a capital expenditures vote are for items that generally exceed $10,000, although an organization may select a reduced threshold to be applied to different capital classes.

Grants and contributions are payments made for the purpose of furthering program objectives but for which no goods or services are received. A grants and contributions vote is used when grants and/or contributions expenditures equal or exceed $5 million. It should be noted that the inclusion of a grant, contribution or other transfer payment item in the Estimates imposes no requirement to make a payment, nor does it give a prospective recipient any right to the funds. It should also be noted that in the vote wording, the meaning of the word “contributions” is considered to include “other transfer payments”.

A non-budgetary vote, identified by the letter “L” preceding the vote number, provides authority for spending in the form of loans or advances to, and investments in, Crown corporations; and loans or advances for specific purposes to other governments, international organizations or persons or corporations in the private sector.

The government must also establish separate votes for each distinct legal entity and to make payments to Crown corporations. Where this is the case, a separate vote structure is established for each. A legal entity for these purposes is defined as a unit of government operating under an act of Parliament and responsible directly to a Minister.

To support the Treasury Board in performing its statutory responsibilities for managing the government’s financial, human and materiel resources, a number of special votes are required. These votes are described under Treasury Board Secretariat in the Proposed Schedules to the Appropriation Bill.

Changes to these Estimates

Changes to Voted Authorities Following the 2018–19 Interim Estimates

The following new or amended authorities are sought through the appropriation act for these Estimates:

  • Department of Health is amending vote 1 to provide more detail on the types of services for which it spends revenues; and
  • Treasury Board Secretariat is adding vote 40 Budget Implementation.

Notes on Information Presented in Part II – Main Estimates

Departments and agencies are presented alphabetically according to the legal name of the department or agency. For some organizations, the legal name differs from the name in common usage. In such cases, their commonly-used name is noted in their raison d’être.

Forecast statutory expenditures are summarized in this document. Details are available in the 2018–19 Statutory Forecasts online table.

Abbreviated vote wordings are used in organization summaries. Complete vote wording is shown in the Proposed Schedules to the Appropriation Bill following Part II.

If applicable, a table provides a listing of transfer payments planned for the 2018–19 fiscal year, with comparative amounts from previous fiscal years for programs with funding in 2018–19. Additional details on transfer payments made in a previous year can be found in Volumes II and III of the Public Accounts of Canada.

Expenditures by program or purpose are presented under new departmental results frameworks, with the exception of:

  • Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police;
  • Northern Pipeline Agency;
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police; and
  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police External Review Committee.

The organizations listed above present expenditures under their existing program alignment architecture.

Administrative Tribunals Support Service of Canada

Highlights

Approximately $65.2 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($55.6 million in voted appropriations and $9.7 million in statutory). With this funding, the ATSSC will be providing the support services and the facilities that are needed by each of the administrative tribunals it serves to enable them to exercise their powers and perform their duties and functions in accordance with their legislation and rules.

Overall (voted and statutory), the ATSSC’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $4.2 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This increase in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • $2.9 million to support the operations of the ATSSC relating to the Specific Claims Tribunal as announced in the Federal Budget 2017; and
  • $2.0 million for negotiated salary adjustments.

For information on the expected impact of recent spending decisions, refer to the Annex, "Budget 2018: Details of Spending Measures and Proposed Departmental Allocations".

Highlights

Approximately $327.4 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($319.2 million in voted appropriations and $8.2 million in statutory appropriations). With this funding, the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency will:

  • support economic growth, wealth creation and economic prosperity in Atlantic Canada through inclusive clean growth and building on competitive regional strengths;
  • help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) grow through direct financial assistance and indirectly through business support organizations; and
  • help SMEs become more innovative by adopting new technologies and processes and pursuing new avenues for expansion and market diversification in order to compete and succeed in a global market.

Overall, the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $15.8 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This increase in funding is attributable primarily to:

  • an increase of $34.5 million for the Atlantic Innovation Fund, Innovative Communities Fund and the Business Development Program to promote and advance an innovative and knowledge-based economy in Atlantic Canada (Budget 2017);
  • an increase of $2.9 million in personnel funding for negotiated salary adjustments;
  • the sunsetting of the spruce budworm outbreak intervention initiative ($4.9 million); and
  • the sunsetting of the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program ($16.6 million).

Highlights

AECL delivers its mandate through a Government-owned, Contractor-operated model. Under this model, AECL’s sites, facilities and assets are managed and operated by Canadian Nuclear Laboratories.

Funding for 2018–19 will enable AECL to deliver on two main areas:

Nuclear decommissioning and radioactive waste management – $592.8 million

The objective is to safely and responsibly address environmental responsibilities and liabilities which have been created as a result of decades of nuclear science and technology activities at AECL sites. This includes infrastructure decontamination and decommissioning, the remediation of contaminated sites and radioactive waste management at AECL sites and other sites for which the Government of Canada has accepted responsibility. Responsible decommissioning and radioactive waste management is necessary in order to clean up AECL’s sites and make way for new infrastructure that will support the ongoing nuclear science and technology mission at the Chalk River Laboratories.

Nuclear Laboratories – $450.7 million

The Chalk River Laboratories are Canada’s largest science and technology complex and host to more than 2,800 employees including a large number of engineers, scientists and technical staff. The work undertaken at the laboratories supports Canada’s federal roles, responsibilities and priorities in the areas of health, energy, the environment, safety and security. The laboratories also provide services to third parties on a commercial basis. The Chalk River site is currently undergoing an important renewal and modernization that will transform the site into a modern, world-class nuclear science and technology campus, thanks to a $1.2 billion over ten years investment by the federal government, beginning in 2016–17.

More information on AECL’s activities can be found in its Corporate Plan Summary.

Highlights

The Canada Border Services Agency is estimating budgetary expenditures of $1,810.3 million in 2018–19. Of this amount, $1,640.0 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $170.3 million represents statutory forecasts related to Employee Benefit Plans (EBP) that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The CBSA’s increase in net spending of $48.6 million or 2.8% is due to an increase in Operating expenditures of $53.5 million, a decrease in Capital expenditures of $4.6 million and a decrease of $0.3 million in Statutory expenditures (EBP).

Major items contributing to the year-over-year net change of $48.6 million in funding levels include:

Increases totaling $120.3 million in the 2018–19 Main Estimates are mainly due to:

  • $46.4 million in funding for the 2017 immigration Levels Plan (horizontal item);
  • $43.9 million in funding for the CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management project (CARM);
  • $15.4 million in funding to expand biometrics screening in Canada’s Immigration proceedings;
  • $7.3 million in funding for the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and the International Mobility Program (horizontal item); and
  • $7.3 million to implement and administer a federal framework to legalize and regulate cannabis (horizontal item).

The increases in the 2018–19 Main Estimates are offset by the following decreases totaling $71.7 million and are mainly due to:

  • $16.3 million reduction in funding requirements related to the Entry/Exit initiative as part of the Beyond the Border Action Plan;
  • $16.2 million reduction in funding to maintain and upgrade federal infrastructure assets;
  • $11.5 million reduction in funding for the Postal Modernization initiative due to the reprofile of funding from 2017–18 to 2019–20;
  • $9.5 million reduction in funding for the Integrated Cargo Security Initiative as part of the Beyond the Border Action Plan;
  • $8.7 million reduction in funding requirements for Delivering on Canadaʼs Commitment to Remove the Visa Requirement for Citizens of Mexico;
  • $5.9 million reduction the Border Infrastructure initiative as part of the Beyond the Border Action Plan; and
  • $3.6 million net reduction for various other projects.

Highlights

Approximately $2,427.4 million in total budgetary funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates (in voted appropriations). With this funding, CMHC will maintain its existing housing programs on and off reserve and begin delivering on the National Housing Strategy (NHS) initiatives. Working with provinces, territories, First Nations, and the private and not-for-profit sectors, CMHC assists Canadians in housing need by improving access to affordable housing.

Overall (voted), CMHC’s total budgetary authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $307.6 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This decrease in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • A decrease of $603.2 million due to the expiry of the majority of Budget 2016 initiatives;
  • A decrease of $41.0 million in baseline funding resulting from the end of operating agreements for existing social housing programs;
  • A decrease of $10.4 million due to the reprofiling of funding for the Investment in Affordable Housing (On-Reserve);
  • An increase of $47.2 million for the Rental Construction Financing Initiative, as announced in Budget 2016;
  • An increase of $4.9 million for the Housing Internship Initiative for First Nations and Inuit Youth;
  • An increase of $3.4 million for the top-up funding for year 3 of the Shelter Enhancement Program as announced in Budget 2016; and
  • An increase of $278.0 million in funding for the National Housing Strategy to support the delivery of the federal components of the Strategy as well as the first year of funding for Northern Housing, as announced in Budget 2017.

CMHC is estimating non-budgetary net repayments of $259.4 million in 2018–19. Changes to the non-budgetary amounts are primarily due to new loan advances to the Affordable Rental Financing Initiative (Budget 2016), but is partially offset by a net increase in the repayment of borrowings in our lending programs. Non-budgetary amounts for the National Housing Strategy are not reflected in this sum.

Highlights

Canada Post Corporation receives an annual appropriation of $22.21 million from the Government for the delivery of Parliamentary mail and materials for the use of the blind, which are sent free of postage under the Act. This appropriation helps to offset the financial impact of these programs on the Corporation.

Parliamentary Mail
The Canada Post Corporation Act allows for the free mailing of letters between Canadians and the Governor General, the Speaker or Clerk of the Senate or House of Commons, a member of the Senate or House of Commons, the Parliamentary Librarian, the Associate Parliamentary Librarian, the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner, the Senate Ethics officer, the Director of the Parliamentary Protective Service, and the Parliamentary Budget Officer. Under the Act members of the House of Commons are also allowed up to four free householder mailings to their constituents in any calendar year.

Materials for the Use of the Blind
The Canada Post Corporation Act provides for free mailing of materials for the blind. Today, thousands of visually impaired Canadians and many libraries across the country, including that of the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, send talking books and other materials free of charge.

Highlights

Approximately $4,204.7 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($3,288.1 million in voted appropriations and $916.6 million in statutory).

Overall (voted and statutory), the Canada Revenue Agency’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $41.8 million or 1% from the previous year’s total Main Estimates, which is the net result of various increases offset by certain planned decreases.

The Canada Revenue Agency’s budget will be increasing by $101.7 million due to the following:

  • $89.8 million for the implementation and administration of various measures to crack down on tax evasion and combat tax avoidance announced in the 2016 and 2017 Federal Budgets;
  • $11.8 million for the taxation regime for cannabis; and
  • $0.1 million for various other transfers.

The above-mentioned increases are partially offset by the following decreases totalling $59.9 million:

  • $16.2 million adjustment to accommodation and real property services provided by Public Services and Procurement Canada;
  • $15.6 million in contributions to employee benefit plans;
  • $10.5 million planned decrease in funding for the upgrade of the individual income tax processing system;
  • $6.7 million for various other initiatives announced in the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Federal Budgets;
  • $5.9 million in the spending of revenues received through the conduct of its operations primarily attributable to initiatives administered on behalf of the province of Ontario; and
  • $5.0 million in payments under the Childrenʼs Special Allowance Act for eligible children in the care of agencies and foster parents.

Highlights

Approximately $586.2 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($586.2 million in voted appropriations). With this funding, CATSA will continue to focus on the delivery of its core mandated activities: Pre-Board Screening, Hold Baggage Screening, Non-Passenger Screening, and the Restricted Access Identity Card program. This will include the ongoing deployment of CATSA’s new Hold Baggage Screening system at airports across Canada as part of its capital life-cycle management plan, and the enhancement of select Pre-Board Screening checkpoints to improve the passenger experience.

Overall, CATSA’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $1.6 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates. This increase in funding is primarily attributable to higher cash flow requirements for 2018–19 to support the deployment of its new Hold Baggage Screening system as part of a 10-year capital life-cycle management plan. This increase is partially offset by a decrease in capital investments designated for new technology deployments and enhancements at Pre-Board Screening checkpoints compared to 2017–18.

Highlights

Approximately $1,210.8 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates. Fiscal year 2018–19 will be the fourth year of the Corporation’s 5-year strategy, Strategy 2020. The strategy aims to better position the broadcaster to meet the fundamental shifts that are transforming the media universe, and consequently how it connects with Canadians. Strategy 2020 is a promise by CBC/Radio-Canada to intensify and deepen its one-on-one relationship with individual Canadians; work in partnership with the creative community to communicate the breadth and depth of Canada’s reality; and set the Corporation on a clear course to long-term financial sustainability. The vision is that by 2020, CBC/Radio-Canada will be the public space at the heart of our conversations and experiences as Canadians.

The Corporation’s appropriations for 2018–19 include the government’s reinvestment of $150.0 million announced in Budget 2016. The reinvestment ensures transformation of the public broadcaster into the digital public space that will allow Canadians to engage with each other, and their world. The reinvestment would also counter existing financial pressures, strengthen the Corporation’s transformation by investing in new content and programming, and allow for enhanced services.

Overall, the Corporation’s appropriations for 2018–19 have a net increase of approximately $22.8 million from the previous year’s Main Estimates. This increase in funding is attributable to compensation for negotiated salary adjustments.

Highlights

Approximately $699.1 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($561.4 million in voted appropriations and $137.7 million in statutory). With this funding, the CFIA is committed to continuously improve its programs and activities in order to better meet the needs of consumers, industry and international trading partners. Every day, CFIA professionals work to support the governmentʼs goals to protect Canadians across the country and instill confidence in our food safety system and our plant, animal and food products and support market access for them. They help protect plant and animal health. They prevent food safety hazards and manage food safety investigations and recalls. They also promote and verify improved packaging and labelling to help consumers make better informed decisions.

Overall (voted and statutory), the CFIA total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $5.5 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This decrease in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • The sunsetting of funding to improve food safety for Canadians (Budget 2016);
  • The sunsetting of funding to improve access to international markets for Canadian agricultural products (Budget 2015);
  • The sunsetting of funding to support laboratory and building rehabilitation projects; and
  • The sunsetting of funding for the Electronic Service Delivery Platform Project. These decreases are partially offset by;
  • Funding to support ongoing efforts to better prevent, detect and respond to food safety risks (Budget 2017).

Highlights

The Canadian Human Rights Commission is estimating budgetary expenditures of $22.5 million in 2018–19. Of this amount, $19.9 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $2.6 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

Overall (voted and statutory), the Commission’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $0.6 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates. This increase in funding is primarily attributable to negotiated salary adjustments.

As the human rights landscape in Canada and in the world is changing and awareness of human rights issues grows, the Commission sees its number of inquiries and complaints received increasing.

To alleviate this situation, the Commission will primarily focus its effort on stabilizing its caseload and on continuing to develop a simpler complaint process that people can easily access and fully participate in. The Commission will also redeploy resources to the complaints process and implement fully its renewed prioritization approach.

The Commission is still committed to promote human rights by raising awareness and mobilizing key stakeholders around human rights issues to influence opinions and actions. Its engagement and advocacy efforts will be coordinated around issues of access to justice; hate and intolerance; and economic, social and cultural rights.

The Commission will continue to contribute to a greater equality in the workplace by introducing a new issue-based approach to its employment equity audit process. The goal is to ensure that employers identify barriers to employment and implement best practices to eliminate gaps in the representation of women, visible minority groups, aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities.

Further details can be found in the Commission’s Departmental Plan.

Highlights

As the government of Canada’s health research funding agency, CIHR funds research excellence through its core responsibility of Funding Health Research and Training and its three Programs:

  • Investigator-Initiated Research: Funding to conduct research in any area related to health aimed at the discovery and application of knowledge;
  • Training and Career Support: Award funding directly to promising current and next generation researchers to support training or career development; and
  • Research in Priority Areas: Funding for targeted grants and awards aimed at addressing priority areas.

Approximately $1,102.4 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($1,096.8 million in voted appropriations and $5.6 million in statutory).

Overall (voted and statutory), CIHR’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $16.8 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This increase in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • Supporting the new Canada 150 Research Chairs program announced in Budget 2017 to fund top-tier international scholars and researchers and enhance Canada’s reputation as a global centre for science, research and innovation excellence ($4.7 million);
  • Investments through the 2018 Centres of Excellence for Commercialization and Research program competition to support the operation of research and commercialization centres that bring together people, services, and research infrastructure to position Canada at the forefront of breakthrough innovations ($3.5 million);
  • Supporting the Adapting to the Impacts of Climate Change initiative announced in Budget 2017 by developing and implementing a targeted research initiative on health and climate change specific to the underlying issues of food security and Lyme disease ($2.5 million); and
  • Supporting the strengthening of the Canadian Drugs and Substances Strategy initiative announced in Budget 2017 by investing in new research on drugs and controlled substances ($2.0 million).

The remaining net increase is the result of CIHR’s participation in tri-agency programs in collaboration with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. Funding for these programs varies by fiscal year as CIHR is allocated funding following each distinct competition depending on the successful applicants’ alignment with CIHR’s health-related mandate.

Further details on CIHR’s 2018–19 planned expenditures are available in CIHR’s 2018–19 Departmental Plan.

Highlights

The Museum’s reference levels in Vote 1 for operating and capital expenditures in 2018–19 are $21.3 million.

Overall (voted and statutory), the Museum’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $3.5 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This decrease in funding is primarily a result of the Museum having moved a portion of its base operating appropriation to previous years in order to complete the museum facility.

The focus of 2018–19 will be:

  • The Digital Dialogue Initiative to create an exceptional online experience;
  • CMHR’s first major branded travelling exhibition Mandela: Struggle for Freedom;
  • Revenue generation;
  • On results through continued development of the evaluation program; and
  • Content development and management.

The Board updated the goals for 2018–19, the second year of the five-year plan. These goals will serve as a roadmap in five strategic areas – visitor experience, audience reach, recognized leader, financial sustainability and people.

The Board and management of the CMHR are committed to building on the Museum’s considerable successes. A defining hallmark of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is its ability to inspire future generations. The Museum plans to expand its reach across Canada and the world, and to refresh and evolve exhibits, content and programming to ensure offerings remain impactful and relevant.

The Museum will continue in its efforts to maximize the net income from admissions, membership, programs, retail, facility rentals and commissions from the bistro and catering. Working with the Friends of CMHR, the Museum will implement a sponsorship strategy to supplement appropriations and earned revenue.

Highlights

Total funding (operating and capital) anticipated through 2018–19 Main Estimates is approximately $31.1 million, which represents a decrease of $1.4 million from the previous year Main Estimates. This decrease is attributable to an increase of $0.4 million in operating funding to address compensation adjustments and a decrease of $1.8 million in capital funding received through Budget 2016 to address health and safety and special consideration projects such as the replacement of aging scientific equipment essential to the program integrity.

In 2018–19, funds will be used to advance year five of the Museum strategic plan that leverages its research and collections strengths in Arctic Knowledge and Species Discovery. Key organizational objectives are:

  • Create a Centre for Arctic Knowledge and Exploration that transforms people’s understanding of Canada’s Arctic and its relationship with Canada as a country in a 21st century global context;
  • Create a Centre for Species Discovery and Change that transforms people’s understanding of the relevance of species diversity to their lives now and in the future;
  • Create a Centre for Nature Inspiration and Engagement that transforms people’s expectations of the Canadian Museum of Nature as a destination for discussion, connection and exploration with nature’s past, present and future that advances understanding and respect for Canada’s natural world;
  • Position the Natural Heritage Campus as a centre of excellence in collections management and knowledge creation, advancement and sharing by becoming a collections collaborator with institutions around the world seeking to collect, preserve, digitize and disseminate specimens that document the nature of Canada; and
  • Create a sustainable business enterprise model of operation that leverages the Museum’s strategic imperatives: knowledge and discovery, inspiration and engagement, presence, performance and advancement.

Highlights

Approximately $29.9 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($28.6 million in voted appropriations and $1.2 million in statutory).

Overall (voted and statutory), the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency’s (CanNor’s) total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $20.2 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This decrease in funding is primarily attributable to the sunsetting of $19.8 million for the Strategic Investments in Northern Economic Development Program and $6.4 million for the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. These decreases are partially offset by an increase of $4.9 million in funding for renewal of the Northern Adult Basic Education Program.

Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission

Raison d’être

The Minister of Natural Resources is responsible for this organization.

In 1946, Parliament passed the Atomic Energy Control Act and established the Atomic Energy Control Board, providing it with the power to regulate all nuclear activities related to the development and use of atomic energy in Canada.

More than half a century later, in May 2000, the Nuclear Safety and Control Act (NSCA) came into effect and established the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) as the successor to the Atomic Energy Control Board, with responsibilities and authorities to regulate an industry that spans all segments of the nuclear fuel cycle and a wide range of industrial, medical and academic uses of nuclear substances.

Additional information can be found in the CNSC’s Departmental Plan.

Highlights

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission is estimating budgetary expenditures of $140.8 million in 2018–19. Of this amount, $38.2 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $102.6 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for informational purposes.

The CNSC has statutory authority – pursuant to paragraph 21(3) of the Nuclear Safety and Control Act (NSCA) – to spend during a fiscal year any revenues that it received in the current or previous fiscal year through the conduct of its operations. The CNSC receives its revenues from regulatory fees charged in accordance with the CNSC Cost Recovery Fees Regulations (the Regulations).

In addition to the statutory authority, the CNSC is also funded through the voted budgetary authority from Parliament – Vote 1 – Program expenditures. Voted authority is used to fund some activities and certain types of licensees who are, under the Regulations, not subject to cost recovery. The Regulations state that some licensees, such as hospitals and universities, are exempt from paying fees as they are entities that exist for the public good. In addition, fees are not charged for activities that result from CNSC obligations that do not provide a direct benefit to identifiable licensees. These include activities with respect to Canada’s international obligations (including non-proliferation activities), public responsibilities such as emergency management, public information programs and updating of the NSCA and associated regulations as appropriate.

Contributions to the employee benefit plans are statutory budgetary authorities.

In 2018–19, the CNSC’s Main Estimates have increased by $3.9 million or 2.8% when compared to the 2017–18 Main Estimates. Most of the increase is attributable to negotiated salary adjustments,

Additional information can be found in the CNSC’s Departmental Plan.

Highlights

Approximately $11.6 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($5.1 million in voted appropriations and $6.5 million in statutory). With this funding, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) will perform a wide range of functions: develop regulatory policies for Canada’s communication system; approve mergers, acquisitions and changes of ownership of broadcasting distribution undertakings; approve tariffs and agreements for certain telecommunication services; issue, renew and amend licenses for broadcasting distribution and programming undertakings; and resolve competitive disputes. In addition to rule making and policy development, the CRTC will exercise its quasi-judicial powers of a superior court with respect to the production and examination of evidence and the enforcement of its decisions.

Overall, the CRTCʼs total authorities (voted and statutory) for 2018–19 have a net increase of $0.1 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This increase in funding is mainly attributable to compensation allocations for negotiated salary adjustments that came into force in 2017–18, and a corresponding increase in statutory budget expenditures related to employee benefits plans.

Highlights

Approximately $348.9 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($339.4 million in voted appropriations and $9.5 million in statutory). With this funding, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) will continue to design, direct, manage and implement programs and projects related to scientific and industrial research and development activities in space.

Overall (voted and statutory), Canadian Space Agency’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $4.9 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This decrease in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • Increasing of $8.8 million related to the International Space Station (ISS);
  • Increasing of $2.6 million for Surface Water & Ocean Topography (SWOT-C) project;
  • Decreasing of $7.5 million for items in Budget 2016 related to safety increase at John H. Chapman space center as well as the purchase and installation of absorber material for the David Florida Laboratory (DFL) Bay 2 Anechoic Chamber;
  • Decreasing of $5.0 million according to the 2015 Budget for the Contribution Program under the Canada-European Space Agency Cooperation Agreement for the Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES) program; and
  • Decreasing of $4.4 million due to funding received in 2017-18 for the Canadian Space Agency’s David Florida Laboratory (DFL) infrastructure and corresponding equipment to maintain its space capabilities and improve compliance with applicable building codes and standards.

Canadian Transportation Agency

Raison d’être

The Canadian Transportation Agency is an independent, quasi-judicial tribunal and regulator which has, with respect to all matters necessary for the exercise of its jurisdiction, all the powers of a superior court. The Agency is an armʼs length organization that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Transport.

The Agency has three mandates:

  • The Agency helps ensure that the national transportation system runs efficiently and smoothly in the economic and social interests of all Canadians; including those who work and invest in it; the producers, shippers, travellers and businesses who rely on it; and the communities where it operates;
  • The Agency protects the human right of persons with disabilities to an accessible transportation network; and
  • The Agency provides consumer protection for air passengers.

To help advance these mandates, the Agency has three tools at its disposal:

  • Rule-making: The Agency develops and applies ground rules that establish the rights and responsibilities of transportation service providers and users and that level the playing field among competitors. These rules can take the form of binding regulations or less formal guidelines, codes of practice or interpretation notes;
  • Dispute resolution: The Agency resolves disputes that arise between transportation providers on the one hand, and their clients and neighbours on the other, using a range of tools from facilitation and mediation to arbitration and adjudication; and
  • Information provision: The Agency provides information on the transportation system, the rights and responsibilities of transportation providers and users, and its legislation and services.

More information on the Agencyʼs role, mission and mandate is available on the Agency website.

Courts Administration Service

Raison d’être

The Courts Administration Service (CAS) was established in 2003 with the coming into force of the Courts Administration Service Act. The role of CAS is to provide effective and efficient judicial, registry and corporate services to four superior courts of record – the Federal Court of Appeal, the Federal Court, the Court Martial Appeal Court of Canada and the Tax Court of Canada. The Act enhances judicial independence by placing administrative services at arm’s length from the Government of Canada and enhances accountability for the use of public money.

The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada is responsible for this organization.

Additional information can be found in CAS’ Departmental Plan.

Highlights

Approximately $72.6 million in funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($66.2 million in voted appropriations and $6.4 million in statutory).

Overall, total authorities for CAS in 2018–19 have a net decrease of $2.6 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

The core programs of the CAS have remained relatively constant over the years. The decrease in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • An increase of $1.3 million for negotiated salary adjustments;
  • An increase of $1.0 million for supporting the translation of decisions of the federal courts (Budget 2017);
  • An increase of $0.9 million for continuing to improve procedural fairness in the citizenship revocation process under the Citizenship Act;
  • A decrease of $4.0 million due to the sunsetting of funding for Division 9 proceedings of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) as well as the pursuit of enhanced diplomatic assurances against torture or mistreatment in serious inadmissibility cases; and
  • A decrease of $1.6 million due to the completion of the relocation of Quebec City court facilities (Budget 2016).

For information on the expected impact of recent spending decisions, refer to the Annex, "Budget 2018: Details of Spending Measures and Proposed Departmental Allocations".

Department of Agriculture and Agri-Food

Raison d’être

The Department of Agriculture and Agri-Food (AAFC) was created in 1868 — one year after Confederation — because of the importance of agriculture to the economic, social and cultural development of Canada. Today, the Department helps create the conditions for the long-term profitability, sustainability and adaptability of the Canadian agricultural sector. AAFC supports the sector through initiatives that promote innovation and competitiveness, and that proactively manage risk. The Department’s goal is to position agriculture, agri-food and agri-based product industries to realize their full potential by seizing new opportunities in the growing domestic and global marketplace.

The Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food is responsible for this organization.

Additional information can be found in Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Departmental Plan.

Highlights

Approximately $2,516.0 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($1,048.9 million in voted appropriations and $1,467.1 million in statutory). With this funding, Agriculture and Agri-Food will work towards ensuring that the Canadian agriculture and agri-food sector takes advantage of new and emerging market opportunities, utilizes science and innovation to strengthen its competitive advantages, anticipates, mitigates and responds to risk in a manner that supports its sustainable growth. The department will undertake the implementation of services and programs under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, a five-year (2018–2023) policy framework by federal, provincial and territorial governments for Canadaʼs agricultural and agri-food sector. The Canadian Agricultural Partnership will focus on six priority areas:

  • Science, research, and innovation;
  • Markets and trade;
  • Environmental sustainability and climate change;
  • Value-added agriculture and agri-food processing;
  • Public trust; and
  • Risk Management.

Overall (voted and statutory), Agriculture and Agri-Food total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $264.8 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This increase in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • Increasing support for Business Risk Management programs under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership policy framework, primarily related to a forecast increase in AgriStability spending;
  • Supporting the implementation of the Dairy Farm Investment Program and the Dairy Processing Investment Fund;
  • Addressing retroactive collective bargaining obligations and other compensation adjustments.

For additional information, please refer to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s 2018–19 Departmental Plan.

Highlights

The Department of Canadian Heritage is estimating budgetary expenditures of $1,310.8 million in 2018–19. Of this amount, $1,285.1 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $25.7 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and that are provided for information purposes.

Total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $133.9 million when compared with the 2017–18 Main Estimates. The overall decrease is explained by a net decline of $22.5 million in Vote 1 (Operating expenditures), $111.2 million in Vote 5 (Grants and contributions) and $0.1 million in statutory forecasts. Major items contributing to the overall decrease are listed below.

Major increases in funding for 2018–19 include:

  • $29.9 million to support a new investment in the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund in order to strengthen cultural infrastructure;
  • $22.5 million in new funding for the Aboriginal Languages Initiative to support the preservation, revitalization and promotion of Indigenous languages;
  • $7.0 million to support the Youth Employment Strategy;
  • $6.2 million for negotiated salary adjustments;
  • $5.0 million to invest in the next generation of Canadian Olympic and Paralympic athletes, as announced in Budget 2015;
  • $5.0 million to increase support for high-performance athletes;
  • $4.0 million to invest in community educational infrastructure in the provinces and territories;
  • $3.2 million to support French language services and preservation of Indigenous languages in the territories; and
  • $2.6 million to support Indigenous youth and sport.

The above increases in funding are offset by the following decreases:

  • $123.9 million in sunsetting funding related to initiatives celebrating the 150th anniversary of Confederation, as well as the celebrations of the 375th anniversary of Montreal;
  • $84.3 million decrease related to the spike in funding in 2016–17 and 2017–18 fiscal years for the short-term investments announced in Budget 2016 in cultural infrastructure;
  • $5.2 million due to the sunsetting of time-limited funding related to the promotion of Canadian artists and cultural industries abroad; and
  • $3.3 million due to the sunsetting of funding from Budget 2014 to support the efforts of Special Olympics Canada.

Additional information regarding Canadian Heritage, its operations and its use of funds, can be found in the 2018–19 Departmental Plan.

Department of Citizenship and Immigration

Raison d’être

Canada is a country of immigrants, welcoming 15 million people since Confederation and home to over 200 ethnic communities. Immigration has been crucial in shaping Canada into the diverse and prosperous nation it is today and, looking forward, stands to be equally fundamental to Canada’s future social cohesion and economic prosperity. To this end, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada facilitates the entry of temporary residents, manages the selection, settlement and integration of newcomers, grants citizenship and issues passports to eligible citizens.

The Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship is responsible for this organization.

Note: Until the establishing legislation is amended, the legal name of the department for the purposes of Appropriation Acts remains Department of Citizenship and Immigration.

Additional information can be found in the departmental plan.

Highlights

Approximately $2,355.7 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($2,201.1 million in voted appropriations and $154.5 million in statutory).

With this funding, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship will continue to attract immigrants who support and fuel the Canadian economy, provide compassionate measures to those in need, continue to issue travel documents to eligible recipients as well as maintain agreements with its different partners.

Overall (voted and statutory), Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $708.7 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

Items contributing to the net year-over-year increase in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • An increase of $236.6 million due to statutory adjustments related to the Passport Canada revolving fund to mostly reflect the decrease in revenues subsequent to the introduction of the 10-year passport in 2013;
  • An increase of $287.9 million related to the 2017 Immigration Levels Plan ($218.9 million) and the 2018 Immigration Levels Plan ($69.0 million) to facilitate the entry of top talent and to support family reunification and protection of refugees; this also includes funding for settlement supports for all newcomers as well as health benefits for eligible persons;
  • An increase of $112.0 million to the grant for the Canada-Quebec Accord on Immigration;
  • An increase of $89.8 million for the Interim Federal Heath program to cover incremental costs related to the provision of health care services to eligible beneficiaries;
  • An increase of $28.1 million to continue the implementation of biometric screening in Canada’s immigration system;
  • An increase of $15.0 million for negotiated salary adjustments;
  • A decrease of $58.1 million related to the Syria initiatives and, as these initiatives are entering their last phases, the remaining costs relate mostly to the settlement program.

Highlights

ESDC is planning budgetary expenditures on programs and services totaling $60.9 billion in 2018–19. More than 94% of planned budgetary expenditures will directly benefit Canadians through the Old Age Security Program and other statutory transfer payment programs.

Of the total amount of planned expenditures, $3.1 billion requires approval from Parliament. The remaining $57.8 billion represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The 2018–19 planned expenditures represent an increase of $4.6 billion, or approximately 8%, when compared to the 2016–17 actual budgetary expenditures of $56.3 billion. The increase is mainly explained by an increase to Old Age Security Pension (OAS) and Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) payments resulting from the aging population and the expected increase of the number of beneficiaries and the average monthly benefit amount.

When compared to the 2017–18 budgetary Main Estimates of $57.4 billion, the 2018–19 planned expenditures represent an increase of $3.5 billion, primarily associated with statutory items.

  • an increase of $2.0 billion to Old Age Security Pension explained by changes in the average monthly rate and in the number of beneficiaries. In 2018–19 the expected average monthly rate increases by $12.79 compared to 2017–18, and the expected number of beneficiaries increases by 2.84%;
  • an increase of $118.2 million to the Canada Student Loans and Grants for Students and Apprentices Program, mostly due to the implementation of Budget 2016 and Budget 2017 measures that increased the number of low-and middle-income students, including those with dependent children, eligible for the Canada Student Grants; and
  • an increase of $96.6 million to the Canada Disability Savings Grants and Bonds, which is due to a steady increase in total registered Canada Disability Savings Plans and participation in the program.

The Department plans to spend $676.8 million in 2018–19 in net operating expenditures (Vote 1), representing an increase of $100.0 million from the 2017–18 Main Estimates of $576.8 million. The net increase is mainly related to the funding renewal in Budget 2017 for the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and new funding for the Old Age Security program workload to support the demographically driven increase.

Voted grants and contributions (Vote 5) are expected to reach $2.4 billion in 2018–19, an increase of $593.3 million from the 2017–18 Main Estimates. The increase is mainly attributable to investments announced in Budget 2017 to Early Learning and Child Care, the Workforce Development Agreement, the Youth Employment Strategy and the Homelessness Partnering Strategy.

In relation to non-budgetary loans, there is a net increase in authorities of $376.2 million from the 2017–18 Main Estimates, mainly as a result of introducing a fixed student contribution model to determine Canada Student Loans Program eligibility that allows students to gain valuable work experience without having to worry about a reduction in the amount of their financial assistance as announced in Budget 2016. The forecasted repayment amount has been decreased since more students are benefitting from the Repayment Assistance Plan, which allows Canada Student Loan borrowers in financial difficulty to make an affordable payment based on their family income.

For information on the expected impact of recent spending decisions, refer to the Annex, "Budget 2018: Details of Spending Measures and Proposed Departmental Allocations".

Highlights

Approximately $94,023.9 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($95.2 million in voted appropriations and $93,928.6 million in statutory).

Overall (voted and statutory), Finance’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $3,880.2 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This increase funding is primarily attributable to:

  • Interest on Unmatured Debt – An increase of $1,667.0 million due to the upward revision of forecasted interest rates by private sector economists, consistent with Budget 2018;
  • Canada Health Transfer – An increase of $1,434.0 million reflecting a 3.9% growth rate. The CHT grows based on a three-year moving average of nominal gross domestic product growth, with funding guaranteed to increase by at least 3% per year;
  • Fiscal Equalization – An increase of $704.6 million reflecting the 3.9% gross domestic product-based escalator being applied to the 2017–18 level;
  • Canada Social Transfer – An increase of $412.5 million reflecting the 3% annual increased funding commitment that commenced in 2009–10 and which was continued in the Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act, 2012 for 2014–15 and subsequent years;
  • Territorial Financing – An increase of $103.5 million reflecting the incorporation of new and updated data for territorial expenditure requirements and revenue capacities into the program’s legislated formula;
  • Alternative Payments for Standing Programs – An increase in recoveries in the amount of $63.7 million as a result of an increase in the value of personal income tax points that were transferred to Quebec;
  • Additional Fiscal Equalization to Nova Scotia – An increase in recoveries in the amount of $85.3 million due to new data entering the formula, which is an average of data for three fiscal years. This program ensures that there is no reduction in combined Equalization and 2005 Offshore Accord Offset Payments relative to the previous Equalization formula (pre-2007);
  • Other Interest Costs – A decrease of $319.0 million largely reflecting the decrease in the average Government of Canada long term bond rate forecast for 2018-19 which is used to calculate interest on the public sector pension obligations pertaining to services pre-April 1, 2000; and
  • Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank – A non-budgetary increase of $52.3 million for Canada’s purchase of initial shares pursuant to the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank Agreement Act. Membership in the AIIB provides an opportunity for Canada to further engage in multilateral development efforts that support inclusive economic growth in Asia and beyond.

Approximately $2,445.6 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($2,309.7 million in voted appropriations and $135.9 million in statutory). With this funding, Fisheries and Oceans Canada will continue to manage Canadaʼs fisheries and safeguard Canadian waters.

Overall (voted and statutory), Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s total authorities for 2018–19 have increased by a net amount of $244.7 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates. This increase is aligned with our Minister’s commitment to protect our three oceans, coasts, waterways and fisheries and ensure that they remain healthy for future generations. Canada is uniquely blessed with an abundance of freshwater and marine and coastal areas that are ecologically diverse and economically significant. These key increases will help us steward these resources.

This overall net increase in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • Investing $275.0 million in the Oceans Protection Plan, which represents the most significant injection of funding ever made to protect Canada’s oceans and coastlines;
  • Investing $244.7 million to maintain mission-critical services to Canadians, specifically in key areas such as Coast Guard assets and core activities, ensuring safe, efficient and reliable Real Property Services, integrity of fisheries management activities, and information technology infrastructure;
  • Investing $58.6 million to support the fish and seafood sector in Atlantic Canada and to support sectors across the country through the implementation of the Atlantic Fisheries Fund Program; and
  • Investing $42.2 million to renew and expand on an ongoing basis our Indigenous fisheries programs and initiatives, which clearly supports the firm commitment to promoting the economic resilience of Indigenous communities.

Along with these increases, we have scheduled adjustments to funding profiles, such as:

  • Planned $229.7 million decrease for federal infrastructure investments; and
  • Planned $95.9 million decrease for the construction of three Offshore Fisheries Science Vessels.

Highlights

Approximately $2.2 billion ($2.0 billion in voted appropriations and $0.2 billion in statutory) is anticipated through the 2018–19 Main Estimates.

With this funding Health Canada will continue improving the lives of all Canadians making this country’s population among the healthiest in the world as measured by longevity, lifestyle and effective use of the public health care system.

Health Canada’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $2.1 billion from the previous year’s Main Estimates.

The main cause of the decrease in Health Canada’s authorities is related to Order in Council P.C. 2017-1465, which on the 30th of November 2017, transferred from the Department of Health (HC) to the Department of Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) the control and supervision of that portion of the federal public administration in HC known as the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch in the amount of $3.1 billion. This decrease is partially offset by increases that will continue to support Health Canada’s goals and the Government of Canada priorities in the following areas:

Supporting innovation in health care and health research:

  • $850.0 million to strengthen Canada’s Home Care and Mental Health Services Initiative;
  • $55.0 million to promote a more innovative health care system through the Canada Health Infoway, Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Innovation, and Canadian Institute of Health Information; and
  • $17.9 million to improve affordability and appropriate use of prescription drugs and medical devices.

Supporting Health Canada’s regulatory role:

  • $65.1 million to implement and administer a federal framework to legalize and strictly regulate cannabis;
  • $32.7 million for maintaining core regulatory operations for therapeutic products;
  • $13.8 million to strengthen the Canadian Drugs and Substances Strategy; and
  • $8.6 million for a new federal regime to address the benefits and harms of vaping products.

Assessing and addressing environmental health impacts:

  • $13.1 million to support the horizontal framework for addressing air pollution activities; and
  • $5.8 million for adapting to the impacts of climate change.

Highlights

Approximately $3,140.5 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($3,044.5 million in voted appropriations and $96.0 million in statutory). With this funding, INAC will continue to support activities that benefit Indigenous peoples (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) and Northerners.

Overall (voted and statutory), INAC’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $6,942.2 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This decrease in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • The transfer of $6,199.3 million to the newly created (November 30, 2017) Department of Indigenous Services Canada that will improve access to high quality services for First Nations, Inuit and Métis;
  • The sunset of $416.4 million in targeted funding to support the delivery of water and wastewater servicing on First Nation reserves as well as on-reserve waste management infrastructure (Budget 2016); and
  • The sunset of $304.2 million in targeted funding for affordable housing and social infrastructure projects (Budget 2016).

  • Digital Skills for Youth ($10.0 million); and
  • Renewal of the Technical Work Experience program ($3.7 million).

These increases are partially offset by a net decrease totalling $283.0 million primarily as a result of fluctuations in the approved funding profile of existing programs and changes in statutory forecasts.

Highlights

Approximately $697.7 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($628.2 million in voted appropriations and $69.6 million in statutory appropriations).

With this funding, the Department of Justice will fulfill three distinctive roles within the Government of Canada. The department acts as:

  • A policy department with broad responsibilities for overseeing all matters relating to the administration of justice that fall within the federal domain and, in this capacity, it strives to ensure a fair, relevant and accessible Canadian justice system for all Canadians;
  • A provider of a range of legal advisory, litigation and legislative services to government departments and agencies; and
  • A central agency responsible for supporting the Minister in advising Cabinet on all legal matters.

For more detailed information consult the Department of Justice 2018–19 Departmental Plan.

The Department of Justice’s overall total authorities for 2018–19 (voted and statutory) have a net increase of $41.6 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This increase in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • An increase of $20.7 million in funding for federal support of the Canadian family justice system (Budget 2017);
  • An increase of $14.2 million in contribution funding for immigration and refugee legal aid (Budget 2017);
  • An increase of $11.0 million in funding for the Indigenous Justice Program (Budget 2017);
  • An increase of $3.0 million in contribution funding for Provinces and Territories in Criminal Legal Aid Systems and Access to Justice Services (Budget 2016);
  • An increase of $2.7 million for negotiated salary adjustments;
  • A decrease of $6.9 million related to the sunsetting of the funding to support the use and protection of classified information in immigration proceedings; and
  • A decrease of $0.5 million to transfer funds to the Department of Health to support the Canadian Drugs and Substances Strategy.

Highlights

National Defence is estimating budgetary expenditures of $20.4 billion in 2018–19. Of this amount, $19.2 billion requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $1.2 billion represents statutory forecasts that do not require approval, but are listed for information. With this funding, National Defence will continue to ensure sound financial management of the Defence budget and contribute to a Canada that is strong at home, secure in North America, and is engaged in the world.

National Defence’s increase in net authority of $1.7 billion, or approximately 9.2%, from the 2017–18 Main Estimates to the 2018–19 Main Estimates, is due to an increase in operating funds of $1.0 billion, an increase in capital funds of $658.3 million, an increase in grants and contributions of $12.0 million and an increase in statutory payments of $9.7 million.

Major factors contributing to the net increase in authorities include:

  • An increase in capital funding related to Strong, Secured, Engaged for investments in major capital projects such as Fixed Wing Search and Rescue, Canadian Surface Combatant, and Light Armoured Vehicle Upgrade;
  • An increase in operating funding related to the Strong, Secure, Engaged defence policy;
  • An increase in funding related to military pay and recently signed collective agreements; and
  • An increase in transfer payments related to the Strong, Secure, Engaged defence policy for innovation.

Highlights

Approximately $1,452.6 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($985.4 million in voted appropriations and $467.2 million in statutory). With this funding, NRCan will promote the sustainable development of Canada’s natural resources through cutting-edge science in energy, forestry, minerals and metals, and earth observation, and represent Canada internationally in meeting global commitments to develop resources sustainably.

Overall (voted and statutory), NRCan’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $112.7 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates. This increase in funding is primarily attributable to:

Highlights

Approximately $3,235.4 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($3,120.7 million in voted appropriations and $114.7 million in statutory). With this funding, Public Works and Government Services Canada will contribute to the government’s priorities of growing the economy, creating jobs, supporting innovation and working collaboratively with other government departments, industry and communities.

Overall, Public Works and Government Services Canada’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $458.7 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This decrease in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • $327.1 million for Real Property Integrity Program:
    The sunset of Budget 2016 funding for the repair, maintenance, operation and improvements to federal buildings.
  • $60.0 million for Refit / Fit-up:
    The sunset of incremental funding received in 2017–18 to prepare the space for occupancy to meet clientʼs program requirements, which can range from smaller refit projects to larger full scale fit-ups.
  • $45.6 million for Federal Infrastructure:
    The sunset of Budget 2015 and Budget 2016 funding to ensure that Canadians continue to benefit from modern, efficient and sustainable infrastructure by applying innovative environmental technologies.
  • $39.8 million for Build in Canada Innovation Program:
    The sunset of approved funding to support Canadian business by procuring and testing their late stage innovative products and services within the federal government before taking them to the market.
  • $8.0 million decrease as a result of completion or change in requirements for other Public Works and Government Services Canada’s projects and activities such as:
    Grande-Allée Armoury
    Cape Breton Operations

And an increase of:

  • $21.8 million for G7 Summit:
    New funding to provide accommodation, special events management, procurement and interpretation services as well as project management support services to federal organizations.

Payments and Accounting core responsibility includes the statutory grant, “Payments in lieu of taxes to municipalities and other taxing authorities”, which amounts to $596.5 million and is recovered by Public Works and Government Services Canada from custodian departments.

Highlights

Approximately $1,515.9 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($1,429.4 million in voted appropriations and $86.4 million in statutory). With this funding, Environment and Climate Change Canada will provide national leadership to take action on climate change by setting pathways for Canada to reduce its domestic greenhouse gas emissions and transition to a resilient, low carbon economy work with provinces, territories, municipalities, Indigenous Peoples and other partners to implement the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change; prevent pollution in ecosystems, water and air; conserve and protect species and habitat; provide weather and environmental information; and develop and enforce environmental regulations.

Overall (voted and statutory), Environment and Climate Change Canada’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $528.6 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This increase in funding is primarily attributable to:

  • An increase of $473.0 million for the Low Carbon Economy Fund;
  • An increase of $16.6 million for negotiated salary adjustments;
  • An increase of $14.5 million for the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change;
  • An increase of $14.4 million for the Freshwater Action Plan;
  • An increase of $13.8 million for the Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan;
  • An increase of $11.3 million for Youth Employment Strategy;
  • A decrease of $15.2 million for the Randle Reef Contaminated Sediment Remediation Project; and
  • A decrease of $12.0 million for the Species at Risk Act.

Department of Transport

Raison d’être

The Minister of Transport is responsible for the Department of Transport.

Transport Canada is responsible for developing and overseeing the Government of Canada’s transportation policies and programs so Canadians can have access to a transportation system that is:

  • Safe and secure;
  • Efficient; and
  • Green and innovative.

The department works towards these objectives by:

  • Proposing and updating policies, laws and regulations;
  • Conducting inspections, enforcement activities and surveillance of transportation industry equipment, operations and facilities; and
  • Providing funding to organizations for projects that strengthen the transportation network including safety improvement projects, technological innovations and green transportation initiatives.

While the department is not directly responsible for all aspects or modes of transportation, it plays a key leadership role in ensuring that all parts of the transportation system across Canada work together effectively by collaborating with various groups including Indigenous people, industry, Provincial and Territorial governments and international partners.

Additional information can be found in Transport Canada’s Departmental Plan.

Highlights

Approximately $1,515.0 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($1,291.1 million in voted appropriations and $223.8 million in statutory). Overall (voted and statutory), the department’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net increase of $212.1 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates. This is a $219.1 million increase in voted funding offset by a $7.0 million decrease in statutory funding.

This increase in voted funding is primarily attributable to:

$100.2 million increase in the Operating vote

Planned spending is expected to increase mostly as a result of Budget 2017 funding for: the Oceans Protection Plan to preserve and protect our coastlines while also growing the economy in a responsible way; the Trade and Transportation Corridors Initiative to build stronger, more efficient transportation corridors to international markets and help Canadian businesses compete, grow and create more jobs; the implementation of Transport Canada’s modernization plan; and, funding to offset the cost of collective agreements settled in the past two years.

$134.5 million increase in the total of the Grants and Contributions votes

As a result of Transport Canada’s participation in the pilot project to assess the impact of a program-based vote structure for grants and contributions, for the past two years the department has had three separate votes for grants and contributions distributed according to the breakdown of planned expenditures in the Program Alignment Architecture. However, as a result of the move from the Program Alignment Architecture to the new Program Inventory the composition and funding change in votes is not directly comparable between 2017–18 and 2018–19.

Overall, planned spending in grants and contributions is expected to increase mostly as a result of Budget 2017 funding for the Oceans Protection Plan and the Trade and Transportation Corridors Initiative. The change in planned spending for all grants and contributions votes is also impacted by cash flow changes in various other programs to better align budgets with expected expenditures.

$15.6 million decrease in the Capital vote

Planned spending is expected to decrease mostly as a result of the sunsetting for the Budget 2016 Federal Infrastructure Initiative partially offset by increased funding for the Ferry Services Contribution Program.

Details on the department’s priorities, core activities and related resource requirements can be found in Transport Canada’s Departmental Plan.

For information on the expected impact of recent spending decisions, refer to the Annex, "Budget 2018: Details of Spending Measures and Proposed Departmental Allocations".

Department of Veterans Affairs

Raison d’être

Canada’s development as an independent country with a unique identity stems partly from its achievements in times of war.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VAC) exists to assist and help those whose courageous efforts gave us this legacy and contributed to our growth as a nation.

The Department of Veterans Affairs Act provides authority to the Minister of Veterans Affairs to administer Acts of Parliament and orders in council as are not by law assigned to any other federal department or any Minister for the care, treatment and re-establishment in civil life of Veterans and the care of their dependents and survivors, and such other matters as the Governor in Council may assign.

The Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence is responsible for this organization.

Highlights

Approximately $4,394.6 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($4,363.1 million in voted appropriations and $31.5 million in statutory). With this funding, VAC will:

  • Support the care and well-being of Veterans and their dependents or survivors through a range of benefits, services, research, partnerships and advocacy;
  • Pay tribute to the sacrifices and achievements of those who served in Canada’s military efforts; and
  • Provide an independent and impartial review of complaints and issues related to programs and services delivered by the Veterans Affairs Portfolio and uphold the Veterans Bill of Rights.

Overall (voted and statutory), VAC’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $296.8 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This decrease in funding is primarily attributable to funding in the previous year relating to the Budget 2016 initiative to increase the Disability Award. A one-time retro payment was made in 2017–18 to all Veterans who received an Award since the introduction of the New Veterans Charter in 2006.

If this one-time funding was removed from consideration, the Department’s total authorities have actually increased. This is primarily attributable to an increase in the number of Canadian Armed Forces Veterans and their families benefiting from VAC programs. At the same time, the number of war-service Veterans is declining, with surviving spouses becoming a larger segment of the population being served.

It is important to note that the Department’s budget fluctuates each year, because of the demand-driven nature of its programs which are based on Veterans’ needs and entitlements. In other words, a Veteran who is entitled to a benefit is paid that benefit, whether 10 Veterans come forward or 10,000.

Additional information can be found in VAC’s Departmental Plan.

Highlights

Approximately $149.6 million in total funding is anticipated through the Main Estimates ($145.7 million in voted appropriations and $3.8 million in statutory).

Overall (voted and statutory), Western Economic Diversification Canada’s total authorities for 2018–19 have a net decrease of $50.1 million from the previous year’s total Main Estimates.

This decrease in funding is primarily attributable to a net decrease in contributions and other transfer payments of $51.8 million, and an increase in operating costs of $1.7 million. Factors contributing to the net decrease in the 2018-19 Main Estimates include:

  • $5.0 million increase to fund the Budget 2017 Enhancement for Western Diversification Program;
  • $1.7 million increase in operating funding for negotiated salary adjustments;
  • $46.2 million decrease in funding for the sunsetting of the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program;
  • $6.1 million decrease in contribution funding for the conclusion of the project with the Rick Hansen Foundation and other minor project cash flow adjustments; and
  • $4.5 million decrease in contribution funding from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to support the establishment of a Livestock and Forage Centre of Excellence.

Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec

Raison d’être

As stipulated in its enabling Act, the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec (CED)’s mission is to “promote the long-term economic development of the regions of Quebec by giving special attention to those where slow economic growth is prevalent or opportunities for productive employment are inadequate”.
