Highlights of these Estimates

In this section

The Supplementary Estimates (B), 2021–22 present a total of $13.4 billion in incremental budgetary spending, which reflects $8.7 billion to be voted and a $4.7 billion increase in forecast statutory expenditures. Roughly $1.2 billion (14%) of the voted requirements are for the government’s response to the COVID‑19 global pandemic.

These Estimates seek parliamentary approval of $8.7 billion in new voted spending. The majority of this new spending is for:

  • health, education, income assistance, child and family services for Indigenous Canadians;
  • housing and infrastructure in Indigenous communities;
  • personnel costs, including salary adjustments resulting from recently negotiated collective agreements and a pay increase for Canadian Forces members;
  • settlement agreements with Indigenous groups and for other litigation and legal claims; and
  • medical and economic support for developing countries.

Overall, funding requirements for the top 10 organizations account for approximately 81.4% of the voted spending sought through these Estimates. Of those 10 organizations, these 5 are each seeking more than $500 million (excluding transfers) to support their priorities:

  • Department of Indigenous Services ($2.1 billion);
  • Treasury Board Secretariat ($1.6 billion);
  • Department of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs ($1.0 billion);
  • Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development ($683.5 million); and
  • Department of National Defence ($644.4 million).

Changes to forecasts of statutory spending, including expenditures pursuant to the proposed extension of COVID‑19 benefits, are included in these Estimates to provide additional information on departments’ total estimated expenditures. Additional information on statutory authorities for COVID‑19 related expenditures is presented online.

The increase of $4.7 billion in budgetary statutory expenditures is mainly due to:

  • the extension of the Canada Recovery Benefit to October 23, 2021 ($1.9 billion); and
  • forecasted requirements for the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit ($1.4 billion) and the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit ($523.7 million).

The increase of $2.8 billion in non-budgetary statutory expenditures is mainly due to:

  • the Large Employer Emergency Financing Facility ($2.4 billion) which provides short-term liquidity assistance to large employers affected by the pandemic; and
  • financial assistance to the International Development Association ($361.7 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 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 (B), 2021–22 is the second of three 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;
  • a comparison of Budget 2021 to planned expenditures in the 2021–22 Estimates;
  • 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 will also be made available online:

  • a 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 purpose in accordance with the organization’s Departmental Reporting Framework;
  • planned expenditures related to COVID‑19 response;
  • allocations from Treasury Board Central Votes; and
  • a listing of transfers between organizations.

The following terminology is used throughout this document:

  • 2019–20 Expenditures refer to the actual expenditures published in the 2020 Public Accounts (Volume II);
  • 2020–21 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 of votes managed by Treasury Board;
  • 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 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 describes appropriations or expenditures for which parliamentary authority is sought through an appropriation bill; and
  • statutory describes appropriations or expenditures which are authorized by Parliament through legislation other than an appropriation act; forecasts are provided for Parliament’s information.

Summary of Estimates

The Supplementary Estimates (B), 2021–22 provides information in support of voted budgetary expenditures in the amount of $8.7 billion for a total of $175.6 billion in 2021–22. This is an increase of 5.2% over the authorities to date.

Comparison of Budget 2021 and Estimates

The following reconciliation is for the purpose of providing greater clarity on the relationship between the figures presented in Budget 2021 and the 2021–22 Estimates and to allow for a more effective comparison and study of how the Estimates cash requirements are derived from the accrual-based budget plan.

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 Federal Budget. Costs related to the Employment Insurance benefits, Children’s benefits and Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy are the largest components of the items excluded from the Estimates.

The Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy and the Canada Child Benefit are legislated through the Income Tax Act and are considered expenditures for government financial reporting purposes. Parliament does not authorize annual spending for these items or for any other tax expenditure or refundable tax credit.

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 the Estimates.

Netted revenues

Certain expenditures are funded through departmental revenues. Accrual expenses in the budget are on a ‘gross’ basis, meaning the revenues are included in the accrual-based revenue forecast, while they are netted against expenditures in the Estimates.

Accrual and other

The Federal Budget is presented on a full accrual basis whereas 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. This category also includes costs related to consolidated Crown corporations that are funded from their own revenues, a number of other adjustments necessary to forecast expenses on a fully consolidated basis, as well as adjustments for items that have been approved and earmarked in the fiscal framework (at the time of Budget 2021 and since then).

Structural Changes and Changes to Voted Authorities

The following structural changes have been reflected since the publishing of Supplementary Estimates (A), 2021–22:

  • the duties and functions under section 188 of the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act were transferred from the Canada Revenue Agency to the Department of the Environment (Order in Council P.C. 2021-0170);
  • the Federal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario was transferred from the Department of Industry to the Federal Economic Development Agency for Northern Ontario (Orders in Council P.C. 2021-0839 to -0842); and
  • the British Columbia Regional Unit was transferred from the Department of Western Economic Diversification to the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada (Orders in Council P.C. 2021-0827 to -0830).

The following have been designated as the appropriate Minister for the purposes of the Financial Administration Act:

  • the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities for the Canadian Intergovernmental Conference Secretariat, the Leaders’ Debates Commission and the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer (Orders in Council P.C. 2021-0935, -0936 and -0937).
  • the Minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario for that Agency (Order in Council P.C.2021-0933);
  • the Minister for International Development for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada (Order in Council P.C. 2021-0931);

  • the Department of Finance is adding Vote L25 to set the maximum amount of loans to the International Development Association; and
  • the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development is amending Vote L25 to increase the limit of financial assistance provided through the purchase of shares of international financial institutions;
  • the Department of Western Economic Diversification is amending Vote 1 to authorize the expenditure of revenues from the provision of internal services;
