Highlights of these Estimates

In this section

The Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019–20 seek parliamentary approval of $4.9 billion in new voted spending. The majority of this new spending is for:

  • Demand-driven services to Veterans;
  • International assistance;
  • Compensation adjustments;
  • Capital projects for National Defence and the Canadian Coast Guard;
  • Workload migration and cloud computing services; and
  • Incentives for purchase of zero-emission vehicles.

Overall, funding requirements for the top 10 organizations account for approximately 81% of the $4.9 billion in voted spending sought through these Estimates. Of those 10 organizations, these 5 are each seeking more than $350 million to support their priorities:

  • Department of Veterans Affairs ($857.4 million);
  • Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development ($565.5 million);
  • Treasury Board Secretariat ($526.4 million);
  • Department of National Defence ($427.2 million); and
  • Department of Fisheries and Oceans ($355.9 million).

Planned expenditures shown in Table A2.11 of the 2019 Federal Budget were included in organizations’ 2019–20 Main Estimates in measure-specific budget implementation votes. Allocations from those votes are reported online and updated on a monthly basis.

These Estimates show, for information purposes, changes in planned statutory expenditures. The increase of $88.0 million in budgetary statutory expenditures relates to employee benefit plans.

General Information

In order to spend money, the government must receive Parliament’s approval, either through previously adopted legislation that provides ongoing authority or on an annual basis through the introduction and passage of appropriation bills in Parliament. As with other bills, appropriation bills become law after being approved by both the House of Commons and the Senate and receiving Royal Assent.

To support Parliament’s consideration and review, the President of the Treasury Board tables in Parliament, prior to the introduction of each appropriation bill, an Estimates publication (Interim, Main or Supplementary) that provides information and details on spending authorities sought.

While the Main Estimates provide an overview of spending requirements for the upcoming fiscal year, 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.

The Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019–20 is the first of two Supplementary Estimates planned for this fiscal year.

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

  • A summary of the government’s incremental financial requirements;
  • An overview of major funding requests and horizontal initiatives;
  • Highlights of new authority requirements and structural changes;
  • Funding details by organization; 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:

  • Detailed listing of statutory expenditures reported through the Estimates;
  • A complete breakdown of planned expenditures by standard object, such as personnel, professional services and transfer payments;
  • Planned expenditures by program or purpose in accordance with the organization’s Departmental Reporting Framework;
  • Allocations from Treasury Board Central Votes; and
  • A listing of transfers between organizations.

The following terminology is used throughout this document:

  • 2017–18 Expenditures refer to the actual expenditures published in the 2018 Public Accounts;
  • 2018–19 Estimates to date include the aggregate of the requirements reported in the Main Estimates, and Supplementary Estimates A and B of that fiscal year;
  • Authorities to date are comprised of amounts reported in the prior Estimates of the current fiscal year, two-year appropriations and allocations votes managed by Treasury Board;
  • These Supplementary Estimates refer to the requirements reported through Supplementary Estimates (A);
  • Proposed Authorities is the sum of all the amounts reported in the Estimates of the current fiscal year, two-year appropriations and allocations from votes managed by Treasury Board;
  • 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;
  • Voted appropriations are those for which parliamentary authority is sought through an appropriation bill; and
  • Statutory expenditures are those authorized by Parliament through legislation other than an appropriation act; forecasts are provided for Parliament’s information.

Summary of Estimates

The Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019–20 provides information in support of voted budgetary expenditures in the amount of $4.9 billion for a total of $131.3 billion in 2019–20. This is an increase of 3.8% over the authorities to date.

The 2019–20 Main Estimates also presented information on statutory amounts of $174.0 billion in budgetary expenditures and $2.1 billion in loans, investments and advances. The amounts presented were inclusive of, not in addition to, amounts previously shown in Interim Estimates.

The Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019–20 provide information in support of $4.9 billion in voted budgetary expenditures. Information is also presented on increases to statutory expenditures of $88.0 million.
