Introduction for Supplementary estimates (A), 2016-17

Introduction

Structure of these Supplementary Estimates

This Supplementary Estimates document is presented in four sections:

  1. Introduction to Supplementary Estimates;
  2. Summary Tables;
  3. Details by Organization; and
  4. Annex.

Purpose and General Information

Each year, the government prepares Estimates in support of its request to Parliament for authority to spend public funds. This request for spending authority is formalized through the introduction of appropriation bills in Parliament. The Main Estimates and Supplementary Estimates are tabled in the House of Commons by the President of the Treasury Board and support Parliament's consideration of the appropriation bills. As with other bills, appropriation bills become law after being approved by both the House of Commons and the Senate and receiving Royal Assent.

The purpose of Supplementary Estimates is to present to Parliament information on the Government of Canada's 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. Also included for Parliament's information and eventual approval through an appropriation bill are such items as: transfers of money between Votes; debt deletion; loan guarantees; new or increased grants; and changes to Vote wording.

Supplementary Estimates documents are tabled in Parliament in advance of the related appropriation bill that, when approved, provides the necessary authority for the Government of Canada to spend monies from the Consolidated Revenue Fund to deliver its programs and services. This provides the various Standing Committees of Parliament with time to review proposed spending before the introduction of the appropriation bill.

Supplementary Estimates also provide updated information on changes to expenditure forecasts of statutory items for information purposes only. These expenditures already have legislative authority and so will not appear in the appropriation bill related to these Supplementary Estimates, but expenditure forecasts are available online.

It is the practice to table a Supplementary Estimates for each of the three Parliamentary Supply periods ending June 23, December 10, and March 26. The Supplementary Estimates (A), 2016–17 are the first of three Supplementary Estimates planned for this fiscal year.

Summary of Estimates

Estimates to date 2016–17

The 2016–17 Main Estimates were tabled on , supporting the government's request to Parliament for authority through annual appropriations to spend $89.8 billion in voted budgetary expenditures and $26.7 million in voted non-budgetary expenditures.

The 2016–17 Main Estimates also presented information on statutory amounts of $160.3 billion in budgetary expenditures and $338.8 million in net non-budgetary outlays. Royal Assent for Appropriation Act No. 1, 2016–17 was granted on and provided interim supply to appropriation-dependent organizations to cover requirements until the end of . In June, the President of the Treasury Board will introduce a bill requesting the remainder of the funding included in Main Estimates.

Given the differences in timing of the preparation of the Main Estimates and the Budget, the 2016–17 Main Estimates do not include new measures from Budget 2016. Following an announcement in the Budget, organizations must prepare detailed spending plans for Treasury Board approval before new spending is presented in Estimates.

The Supplementary Estimates (A), 2016–17 provide information in support of $7.0 billion in voted budgetary appropriations which represent an increase of 7.8% over Main Estimates. These estimates also include a $30.4 million increase in non-budgetary expenditures (loans, investments and advances).

Most of these voted expenditures are related to measures announced in Budget 2016, with three significant areas of infrastructure spending accounting for about 56%, or $3.9 billion. Additional details on the initiatives being undertaken are provided in a special online annex on 'Budget 2016 Infrastructure Spending'.

These and other budget measures are identified when they appear in the Estimates for the first time.

Supplementary Estimates also include material updates of "Statutory Forecasts" in an online annex. The Supplementary Estimates (A), 2016–17 reflect a $5.8 billion decrease in the Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) from the amount shown in Main Estimates. The UCCB and the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) will be replaced by the Canada Child Benefit in .

The Canada Child Benefit will be a tax-free monthly payment, with low- and middle-income families receiving more benefits than those with higher incomes. It is estimated that nine out of ten families will receive more in child benefits under this system, at a net additional fiscal cost of $4.5 billion in 2016-17.

Comparison of Budget and Estimates

For the first time, these Supplementary Estimates present a summary of the adjustments necessary to understand how the forecast of planned expenditures in the Estimates compares with the expense forecast set out in the federal Budget.

In recent years, there has been concern expressed by Parliamentarians and members of the public about the differences between the reporting of funds requested in the Estimates and expenses forecasted in the federal Budget. While each document serves its own specific purpose, the differences between them can create confusion when Parliament is asked to approve appropriations that do not capture the measures announced in the most recent Budget.

The following table presents a comparison of Budget 2016 and the 2016–17 Estimates to date, in order to provide greater clarity on the relationship between the figures presented in each.

Items Not Included in the Estimates

The Estimates are designed primarily to support Parliament's consideration of appropriation bills and control of annual voted expenditures. As such, the Estimates exclude some spending that does not require annual spending authority from Parliament but is reported as government spending in the Budget.

Costs related to Employment Insurance benefits are the largest component of this category. 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.

Another example is the new Canada Child Benefit, which 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 credits. 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 whereas the Estimates are presented on a modified cash basis. As a result, certain items will be reported differently between the two publications.

One such item is spending on capital assets. Under accrual accounting, the cost to acquire an asset is amortized over the expected life of the asset, whereas under cash accounting, the cost is recognized as disbursements are made. For example, when acquiring a building with a useful life of 30 years, accrual accounting will see the cost amortized over the 30-year life of the asset; cash accounting will portray the cost only in the first few years when the payments are made.

This category also includes bad debt expenses, operating expenses and public debt charges on 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. For example, the Government seeks to include the full cost of benefits in the Budget forecast for public debt charges, and so includes interest on obligations owing for employee future benefits.

Budget 2016 and Other Measures Not Yet Approved by Treasury Board

This category of spending corresponds to items that have been approved and earmarked in the fiscal framework but for which Parliamentary spending authority has yet to be sought, including the remaining Budget 2016 spending measures.

The difference exists because the Budget is forward looking and presents expenses anticipated for a given year, while the voted expenditures shown in the Estimates refer to amounts that have already received Treasury Board approval as of a particular date. As such, the Estimates provide the maximum amount of appropriated funding that can be spent at that point in time, while the Budget projects the amount of spending that will likely be spent over the entire course of the year.

There are many reasons why funding for announced initiatives may not yet have been presented to the Treasury Board for approval, with one of the most common being that additional policy discussion or authority from Cabinet is required to finalize details of the initiative.

Assumed Lapse of 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. The figure included in this table represents the lapsing of authorities that, if used, would have resulted in expenses.

Other

This category represents a number of diverse factors, including provisions for the cost of possible future liabilities and cost increases.
