Crown Corporations' Tabling Information

This section provides consolidated information about when the corporate plan summaries, budget summaries, and annual reports of Crown corporations are due to be tabled in Parliament, and the dates on which these documents were actually tabled pursuant to section 151 of the Financial Administration Act (FAA).

The Budget Implementation Act (BIA) bill, which received royal assent on , included amendments to sections 151 and 152 of the FAA to reduce the reporting burden for Crown corporations and to improve the quality and timeliness of information about federal Crown corporations that is available to the public.

In the past, the reports produced in accordance with FAA sections 151 and 152 were tabled in Parliament in a single document. Last year they were separated into two documents in order to facilitate links between the Annual Report to Parliament on Crown Corporations and Other Corporate Interests of Canada and other publicly reported data and information about federal institutions. The reporting requirements for Crown corporations' reports tabled in Parliament are now listed in section 151 of the FAA. To further the government's commitment to modernize the way the public service works and to ensure Canadians have improved access to the working of government, the President of the Treasury Board is now required to make public this information four times a year, after the end of each fiscal quarter of each fiscal year.

The BIA bill eliminated the requirement to table this information before each House of Parliament and to have it attested by the Auditor General of Canada.

Individual Crown corporations' annual reports and summaries will continue to be laid before Parliament pursuant to the FAA.

Deadlines for Tabling in Parliament

Crown corporations report to Parliament through three key types of documents: the corporate plan summary, the budget summaries, and the annual report. Unless the corporation is exempt,Footnote 1 the minister responsible tables annually a corporate summary, a capital budget summary, and, in most cases, an operating budget summary.Footnote 2 As of , there were a total of 46 operational Crown corporations. One Crown corporationFootnote 3 was still non-operational. Tabling data for 37 operational Crown corporations are included in this report; 9 do not submit documents to Parliament.Footnote 1

Corporate plan and budget summaries tabled in Parliament are based on the approved corporate plan and budgets that cover the planned or future business, activities, and investments of a corporation and, where applicable, its wholly owned subsidiaries. The Crown corporation's annual report informs Parliament of the corporation's actual performance relative to the objectives, strategies, and activities approved by the government and in relation to previously tabled corporate plan and budget summaries.

This section provides the criteria used to calculate the deadlines for tabling in Parliament and the related legislative provisions.

Deadlines for Tabling in Parliament and the Results Achieved

The Crown Corporation Corporate Plan, Budget and Summaries Regulations and subsection 150(1) of the Financial Administration Act set out the deadlines for the tabling of Crown corporations' reports before each House of Parliament. The reports and their tabling deadlines are as follows:

  • Corporate plan or amended corporate plan summary: Tabled within 30 sitting days after Governor in Council approval of the corporate plan.
  • Capital or operating budget summary: Tabled within 30 sitting days after Treasury Board approval of the budget. When the operating or capital budgets are incorporated into the corporate plan, the deadline is the same as that for the corporate plan summary.
  • Annual report: Tabled within 15 sitting days after receipt by the responsible minister. The corporation must submit the report as soon as possible but at the latest, within three months after the termination of its financial year-end.

Deadlines for annual reports are calculated from three months following the corporation's fiscal year-end.
