Highlights of these Estimates
The Supplementary Estimates (C), 2020–21 present a total of $8.0 billion in incremental budgetary spending, which reflects $13.4 billion to be voted, partially offset by a $5.4 billion decrease in forecast statutory expenditures. Roughly $9.9 billion (74%) of the voted requirements are for the Government’s response to the public health, social and economic impact on Canadians of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
These Estimates seek parliamentary approval of $13.4 billion in new voted spending. The majority of this new spending is for:
- emergency responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, including medical research, vaccine development, public health measures in Indigenous communities, assistance to developing countries, testing, contact tracing, data management and purchases of personal protective gear and medical equipment and supplies;
- economic responses to the pandemic, including support for small and medium-sized businesses, regional air services and broadcasters; and
- government operations, including compensation adjustments for government personnel, as well as for increased expenditures due to the pandemic.
Overall, funding requirements for the top 10 organizations account for approximately 89% of the voted spending sought through these Estimates. Of those 10 organizations, these 4 are each seeking more than $800 million to support their priorities:
- Public Health Agency of Canada ($6.3 billion);
- Treasury Board Secretariat ($1.7 billion);
- Department of Indigenous Services ($1.6 billion); and
- Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development ($895.6 million).
These Estimates show, for information purposes, changes in planned statutory expenditures, including expenditures pursuant to the proposed Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2020 (Bill C-14). The decrease of $5.4 billion in budgetary statutory expenditures reflects a number of both increases and decreases in planned expenditures. Major increases include:
- the Canada Recovery Benefit ($10.1 billion);
- the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit ($2.9 billion);
- a payment to the Canada Infrastructure Bank ($2.3 billion); and
- the Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit ($780.0 million).
Decreases of forecast statutory expenditures, either due to revised forecasts in the Fall Economic Statement 2020 or to the repeal of the Public Health Events of National Concern Payments Act, include:
- the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (-$11.9 billion);
- medical research and vaccine developments (-$2.5 billion);
- the Canada Emergency Student Benefit (-$2.2 billion); and
- acquisition of protective gear and medical equipment (-$1.7 billion).
Any statutory expenditures expected to take place after the repeal of specific COVID-19 legislation will be charged as voted expenditures, or under other statutory authorities.
Additional information on statutory authorities for COVID-19 related expenditures is presented on page 1–5 and online.
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 (C), 2020–21 is the third and final Supplementary Estimates planned for this fiscal year.
For these Supplementary Estimates, 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 the Fall Economic Statement 2020 and planned expenditures in the 2020–21 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 is also 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 program or purpose in accordance with the organization’s Departmental Reporting Framework;
- Planned expenditures related to COVID-19 response;
- Frozen Allotments in Voted Authorities;
- Allocations from Treasury Board Central Votes; and
- A listing of transfers between organizations.
The following terminology is used throughout this document:
- 2018–19 Expenditures refer to the actual expenditures published in the 2019 Public Accounts (Volume II);
- 2019–20 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 of votes managed by Treasury Board;
- These Supplementary Estimates refer to the requirements reported through Supplementary Estimates (C);
- 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 (C), 2020–21 provides information in support of voted budgetary expenditures in the amount of $13.4 billion for a total of $166.2 billion in 2020–21. This is an increase of 8.7% over the authorities to date.

Comparison of the Fall Economic Statement and Estimates
The following reconciliation is for the purpose of providing greater clarity on the relationship between the figures presented in the Fall Economic Statement 2020 and the 2020–21 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.
|2020–21 (billions of dollars)|
|Authorities to Date 2020–21||479.5|
Related to COVID-19
|Plus: Items not included in Estimates||147.2|
Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy
Employment Insurance benefits
Canada Child Benefit
Other Tax Credits and Repayments
|Plus: Vote Netted Revenue||12.6|
|Plus: Accrual and other adjustments||2.3|
|Fall Economic Statement 2020 (Projected Total Expenses for 2020-21)||641.6|
Items not included in the Estimates
The Fall Economic Statement 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 Fall Economic Statement 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 Fall Economic Statement. Costs related to the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, Children’s benefits and Employment Insurance benefits 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 spending annually for this item 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 Estimates.
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 adjustments
The Fall Economic Statement 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, as well as a number of other adjustments necessary to forecast expenses on a fully consolidated basis.
Structural Changes and Changes to Voted Authorities since the 2020–21 Main Estimates
The following structural changes have taken effect since the publishing of the 2020–21 Main Estimates:
- The President of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada was designated as the appropriate Minister for the Canadian Intergovernmental Conference Secretariat for the purposes of the Financial Administration Act (Orders in Council P.C. 2020-640 and 641); and
- The Ministers’ Regional Office Program was transferred from the Department of Public Works and Government Services to the Privy Council Office and unexpended appropriations were deemed to be appropriated for that Office (Order in Council P.C. 2020-525).
The following new or amended authorities are sought through the Appropriation Act for these Estimates:
- The Correctional Service of Canada is amending Vote 1 to add the authority to expend revenues that it receives from the provision of internal support services;
- The Department of Citizenship and Immigration is adding Vote 15 for the forgiveness of a debt and Vote 20 to write off debts related to immigration loans;
