Crown Corporations Financial Data

Federal Crown corporations operate in many sectors of the Canadian economy, though each has a unique public policy interest. The corporations vary in size and in their reliance on government appropriations.

Departments, agencies and Crown corporations must publish a quarterly financial report on their website for each of the first three quarters of the fiscal year within 60 days of the end of the reporting period, as per Section 65.1 (1), (3) and 131.1 (1), (3) of the Financial Administration Act (FAA).

The FAA requires that the President of the Treasury Board publicly report the quarterly consolidated financial data, including aggregate borrowings of parent Crown corporations. As of , there were 45 Crown corporations directed to report as parent Crown corporations for the purposes of the FAA.

The format of consolidated reports was streamlined as of to provide key and relevant financial information on Crown corporation business and activities based on respective quarters and not the quarter end date. Employment statistics are no longer reported in this consolidation. Links to the corresponding publications were added to be consulted for additional information.

The consolidated reports were prepared in accordance with the Section 151(1) and (2) (a), (c) of the FAA based on unaudited quarterly financial reports that have been made public under subsection 131.1(3), and annual reports that were laid before Parliament under subsection 150(1).
