Funding announced in this year’s federal budget is compared with that requested through the Estimates. Budget 2017 presents a total spending framework of $330.2 billion. Of that amount, $267.3 billion are represented in the Estimates to date for 2017-18, including Supplementary Estimates (B).
Two other components are:
- $66.1 billion for Employment Insurance and Children’s Benefits, and other measures not included in Estimates; and
- $3.2 billion to account for differences in accounting basis, measures not yet approved by Treasury Board, assumed lapse of authorities, new funding approvals since Budget 2017 and other adjustments.
