  • Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development ($442.7 million);
  • Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development ($434.7 million); and
  • Department of Health ($265.7 million).

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 (Main or Supplementary) that provides information and details on spending authorities sought.

While the Main Estimates, tabled by , provides 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.

It is practice to table a Supplementary Estimates for each of the three Parliamentary supply periods ending , and . The Supplementary Estimates (B), 2017–18 are the second of three exercises 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 via the House of Commons and the Senate.

The following supplemental information is also available online;

  • Detailed listing of legislated amounts 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 organizations’ Program Alignment Architecture or Departmental Reporting Framework;
  • Allocations from Treasury Board Central Votes;
  • A listing of transfers between organizations;
  • Supplemental information of horizontal initiatives and other jointly funded items by organization; and
  • A graphical summary of financial highlights.

The following terminology is used throughout this document:

  • 2015–16 Expenditures refer to the actual expenditures published in the 2016 Public Accounts;
  • 2016–17 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;
  • Authorities to date are comprised of amounts reported in the prior Estimates of the current fiscal year, two-year appropriations and allocations from Treasury Board Central Votes;
  • These Supplementary Estimates refer to the requirements reported through Supplementary Estimates (B);
  • Proposed Authorities is the sum of all the amounts reported in the Estimates of the current fiscal year, two-year appropriations and allocations from Treasury Board Central Votes;
  • 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 enabling legislation and for which forecasts are provided for Parliament’s information.
