Part II - Main Estimates

Agriculture and Agri-Food

Raison d'être

The Department of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada was created in 1868 - one year after Confederation - because of the importance of agriculture to the economic, social and cultural development of Canada. Today, the Department helps ensure the agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products industries can compete in domestic and international markets, deriving economic returns to the sector and the Canadian economy as a whole. Through its work, the Department strives to help the sector maximize its long-term profitability and competitiveness, while respecting the environment and the safety and security of Canada's food supply.

Highlights

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada is estimating budgetary expenditures of $2.2 billion in 2013-14. Of this amount, $849.3 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $1.3 billion represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes only.

The Department's 2013-14 Main Estimates are a reflection of approved budget and resource allocation decisions at a point in time. Most of the Department's programs are approved on a cyclical basis and, depending on the timing of approvals, some spending authorities may not be received in time for the Main Estimates, but rather are received later in the year and are included in Supplementary Estimates exercises. It is important to note that despite the reduced spending authorities in the 2013-14 Main Estimates as compared to prior years, funding for Growing Forward 2 cost-shared initiatives and support of Business Risk Management programming is expected to be presented in 2013-14 Supplementary Estimates.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada provides information, research and technology, and policies and programs to help Canada's agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products sector compete in markets at home and abroad, manage risk, and embrace innovation. The activities of the Department extend from the farmer to the consumer and from the farm to global markets, through all phases of sustainable production, processing and marketing of agriculture and agri-food products. The spending authorities in the 2013-14 Main Estimates are integral to achieving the Department's plans and priorities. Please refer to the Department's Report on Plans and Priorities for further details.

The 2013-14 fiscal year is the first year of Growing Forward 2, the next federal, provincial, territorial agriculture policy framework. This framework will support a shift in focus towards more proactive investments in innovation, competitiveness and market development initiatives to help producers meet rising demand, both in Canada and internationally. Growing Forward 2 will also see a transformative shift in the delivery of Business Risk Management programming, moving away from reactive income support towards programming that facilitates market-based profitability and economic growth. This, in combination with higher commodity prices driven by increasing grain prices, have resulted in an overall reduction of the forecast requirement for statutory grants and contributions under Business Risk Management programming in the 2013-14 Main Estimates, particularly within the AgriStability program. Business Risk Management programming will continue to provide effective support that will ensure producers are protected against severe market volatility and disasters.

Budget 2012 announced that the Government is also delivering on its long-standing promise to give Western Canadian farmers the freedom to market their own wheat and barley on the open market. The 2013-14 Main Estimates include $53.5 million and the 2012-13 Estimates to date include $184.2 million in spending authorities for the Canadian Wheat Board Transition Costs program. As well, savings for the Budget 2012 Spending Review are factored into these Main Estimates, and the Department is currently on track for meeting its 2013-14 savings target.

The Department's Vote 10 grants and contributions spending authorities in 2013-14 decrease compared to the 2012-13 Estimates and 2011-12 actual expenditures primarily due to Growing Forward 2 provincial and territorial cost-shared initiatives which are still being finalized and are therefore not included in these Main Estimates. The Department, in consultation with provincial and territorial partners, continues to work at tailoring Growing Forward 2 cost-shared initiatives to suit local needs and objectives. These amounts are expected to be added to the Department's Vote 10 spending authorities through Supplementary Estimates. In addition, a number of programs will sunset at the end of 2012-13 such as the ecoAgriculture Biofuels Capital Initiative ($52.3 million total) and the Agricultural Innovation program ($38.4 million total). As well, the Agricultural Flexibility Fund will wind down in its final year in 2013-14 ($34.6 million total).

Similarly, the Department's Vote 1 spending authorities in the 2013-14 Main Estimates are less than the 2012-13 Estimates to date, as well as 2011-12 actual expenditures, primarily due to the renewal of support for statutory Business Risk Management programs which is still being finalized. Additional funding is expected to be added to the Department's spending authorities through Supplementary Estimates once this is approved.

Highlights

The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) is estimating budgetary expenditures of $300.0 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $293.0 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $7.0 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

ACOA's decrease in spending of $23.2 million from 2012-13 Estimates to date to 2013-14 is due to a decrease in operating costs of $6.5 million, a decrease in contributions and other transfer payments of $15.7 million, and a decrease of $1.0 million in statutory costs. Factors contributing to the net decrease include:

Impacts of program realignment and efficiencies of $14.1 million:

Impacts of yearly adjustments for which authorities are sought throughout a fiscal year and which may vary in amount from year to year. These adjustments amounted to $9.1 million in 2012-13:

Impacts of termination of funding initiatives and agreements amounted to $1.5 million in 2012-13:

Impacts of other increases of $1.5 million:

In 2013-14, the Agency will continue to use its resources and programs to maintain its focus on improving the productivity and competitiveness of Atlantic Canadian companies. The Agency will also continue to work with communities and community economic development organizations to identify and implement economic opportunities benefiting the region's rural and urban areas. Finally, ACOA will continue to ensure that its programs and activities are responsive and relevant to both national priorities and the needs of Atlantic Canadians.

For further details on ACOA's planned spending, refer to the 2013-14 Report on Plans and Priorities.

Highlights

The CIRB's strategic outcome is to achieve the following: effective dispute resolution services that support constructive labour management relations in sectors regulated by the Canada Labour Code. In order to achieve this objective, the Board will continue to focus its efforts on maintaining its current rate of disposition of new cases so as to ensure that a backlog does not recur. This will be achieved through effective case management and proactive mediation assistance at all stages of a case. The CIRB will also proactively seek resolution of matters that best meets the needs of the parties to a dispute through mediation assistance by regional staff and Board members.

The Board will focus on two initiatives in 2013-14:

The Canada Industrial Relations Board is estimating budgetary expenditures of $13.6 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $11.9 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $1.6 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The increase in the Board's Estimates is mainly due to additional funding provided to compensate the Board for its planned additional responsibilities related to the Status of the Artist Act. The variance between 2011-12 expenditures and 2012-13 Estimates is directly related to the cash out of severance entitlements in 2011-12 to several CIRB employees, pursuant to a new government policy regarding severance pay.

More information on the Board's plans and priorities can be found in the Board's 2013-14 Report on Plans and Priorities, available on the CIRB's website.

As Canada's national housing agency, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation plays a significant role in administering federal investments in social housing through agreements with provinces and territories and First Nation communities. Almost 605,000 lower income households benefitted from these types of federal investments in 2011. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation also provided federal funding towards renovation programs so that needed repairs or rehabilitation could be undertaken for another 6,730 units for seniors, persons with disabilities, victims of family violence and others who could otherwise not afford adequate and suitable housing.

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation is the only source of comprehensive market analysis information serving both industry and consumers. Its research and information transfer activities on key housing issues have been instrumental in helping Canadians make more informed housing choices. These activities also support industry in the planning, designing, construction operation and maintenance of housing, and assist the public policy decision-making process. Better information contributes to the stability, effectiveness and efficiency of housing markets.

Once tabled in the House of Commons, additional information will be available in Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's Summary of the Corporate Plan, available at CMHC's website.

Canadian Dairy Commission

Raison d'être

The Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC) is a federal Crown corporation created in 1966 through the Canadian Dairy Commission Act. It reports to Parliament through the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food. Its legislated objectives are twofold: to provide efficient producers of milk and cream with the opportunity of obtaining a fair return for their labour and investment; and to provide consumers of dairy products with a continuous and adequate supply of dairy products of high quality.

The CDC plays a central facilitating role for the multi-billion dollar Canadian dairy industry. Federal-provincial agreements now provide the authority for many of the programs and activities that the CDC employees administer and facilitate on a day-to-day basis. The CDC strives to balance and serve the interests of all dairy stakeholders — producers, processors, further processors, exporters, consumers and governments.

Highlights

The Canadian Dairy Commission is estimating budgetary expenditures of $4.0 million in 2013-14, which requires approval by Parliament.

The Canadian milk supply management system rests on three pillars: production management, price setting and import controls. The CDC is directly involved in the administration of two of the three pillars (production management and price setting) via the establishment of industrial milk quota and support price.

The CDC administers the three revenue pooling and market sharing pools that exist among milk producers. Monthly, the CDC receives data from provincial milk marketing boards and calculates the payment transfers between provinces to equalize returns and adjusts quota allocations to provinces to account for the sharing of markets.

To ensure a steady supply of dairy products on the Canadian market, the CDC operates the Domestic Seasonality Programs. To ensure that milk components for which there is no outlet on the domestic market are removed in a timely fashion, the CDC operates the Surplus Removal Program. Furthermore, in order to promote the use of dairy products and ingredients in processed foods, the CDC operates the Dairy Marketing Program.

In addition, the CDC, on the industry's behalf, administers the Special Milk Class Permit Program (SMCPP) and the Domestic Dairy Product Innovation Program. The parameters of these programs are decided by the industry.

The CDC imports the tariff rate quota of butter and sells this butter to participants in the SMCPP through butter manufacturers. Profits that the CDC generates by this activity are used to finance initiatives that provide benefits to the industry. Examples of these initiatives are graduate scholarships in Canadian establishments and the validation of dairy farms under the Canadian Quality Milk Program, an on-farm quality assurance program.

The CDC also controls the subsidized exports of Canadian dairy products through the issuance of export permits. This permit system has been put in place to ensure that Canadian exports of dairy products do not exceed the limits imposed on Canada by the World Trade Organization for subsidized exports.

No significant changes are expected in the programs that the CDC administers in fiscal year 2013-14. Further details can be found in the Canadian Dairy Commission's Corporate Plan.

The remaining $2.9 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The Agency's 2013-14 Main Estimates are $14.0 million higher than the 2012-13 Main Estimates. This is attributable to funding renewal for Major Project Management Office initiatives ($7.4 million) and for Aboriginal consultations ($6.6 million). In 2012-13, the Agency received funding for these initiatives through Supplementary Estimates (A).

No significant changes are planned for the 2014-15 Main Estimates.

The Agency's Main Estimates for 2015-16 will show a decrease of $14.0 million due to the sunsetting of funds related to the Major Project Management Office and Aboriginal Consultation initiatives.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is estimating budgetary expenditures of $687.9 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $552.2 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $135.7 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

CFIA's 2013-14 Main Estimates increase by $2.4 million from the 2012-13 Main Estimates of $685.5 million. The major items included in this increase are:

The 2012-13 Estimates to Date are approximately $42.8 million higher than the 2012-13 Main Estimates. This increase can be explained by resource requirements presented in Supplementary Estimates.

In 2012-13, the CFIA's planning of activities was guided by four overarching priorities: strong foundation, working closely with partners, enhancing service, and strengthening internal management. These priorities were rooted in the Agency's strategic change agenda. During the 2012-13 fiscal year, the change agenda, and its priorities, were further refined through the Agency's ongoing long term strategic planning exercise. By defining the Agency's long term vision and careful consideration of its key strategic risks, the Long Term Strategic Plan assists the CFIA in mitigating its risks, strengthening its foundations, and effectively delivering its core program activities into the future. Below are the four priorities for the CFIA for 2013-14 which are a refinement of 2012-13 priorities.

An increased focus on prevention will provide an opportunity to reduce risks to human and ecosystem health. Integrating proactive and preventative risk management approaches into all CFIA programs, including focus on partnerships and sharing of information, will help the CFIA to anticipate, prevent, prepare, and manage issues, including emergencies.

CFIA's role as an effective regulator will be enhanced by a focus on service excellence. Strengthening the service delivery culture will result in effective regulatory delivery and domestic and international stakeholders who have confidence in the CFIA as a trusted and credible regulator.

Adapt and evolve to meet new demands and expectations with a focus on internal performance excellence. Maximizing performance will enable the CFIA to evaluate the effectiveness of the Agency's policies and programs and to allocate resources to areas of highest risk.

Focusing on people who are supported by training and tools will result in a stable and skilled CFIA workforce and adaptable and satisfied employees.

Once tabled in the House of Commons, additional information will be available in the departmental Report on Plans and Priorities.

Canadian Forces Grievance Board

Raison d'être

The raison d'être of the Canadian Forces Grievance Board is to provide an independent and external review of military grievances. Section 29 of the National Defence Act provides a statutory right for an officer or a non-commissioned member who has been aggrieved, to grieve a decision, an act or an omission in the administration of the affairs of the Canadian Forces. The importance of this broad right cannot be overstated since it is, with certain narrow exceptions, the only formal complaint process available to Canadian Forces members. The Canadian Forces Grievance Board reports to Parliament through the Minister of National Defence.

Canadian Grain Commission

Raison d'être

The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) is a federal government agency that administers the provisions of the Canada Grain Act (CGA). The CGC's mandate as set out in the CGA is to, in the interests of the grain producers, establish and maintain standards of quality for Canadian grain and regulate grain handling in Canada, to ensure a dependable commodity for domestic and export markets. CGC's vision is to be “A leader in delivering excellence and innovation in grain quality and quantity assurance, research, and producer protection”. The Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food is responsible for the CGC.

Highlights

The CGC is estimating budgetary expenditures of $22.2 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $21.6 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $0.6 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The increase in net authority of $16.7 million from 2012-13 Main Estimates is due to the provision of funding to transition the CGC to a sustainable funding model as identified in Budget 2012.

The current CGC funding structure is based on budgetary authorities that are comprised of both statutory and voted authorities. The statutory authorities include employee benefit plan authority for appropriation funded positions and the CGC revolving fund authority which allows the CGC to re-spend fees that it has collected. The voted authority is Vote 30 - Program Expenditures which includes annual appropriation authority and any ad hoc appropriation authority for the fiscal year.

A revolving fund was set up for the CGC in 1995 with the expectation that the CGC would be largely self-funded through fees for service. Although the CGC's user fees have not increased since 1991, the CGC is in the process of implementing a new user fee structure to become self-funded. The CGC plans to transition to its new fee structure in 2013-14 and revenues credited to vote have increased to $47.9 million.

Additional information can be found in the CGC's Reports on Plans and Priorities.

Highlights

The Department of Canadian Heritage is estimating budgetary expenditures of $1.32 billion in 2013-14. Of this amount, $1.29 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $22.8 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes. This is an increase of $36.6 million when compared to the 2012-13 Main Estimates.

The net increase is a combination of a decrease of $17.9 million in Vote 1 (Operating expenditures) and an increase of $54.5 million in Vote 5 (Grants and contributions). The decrease of $17.9 million in Vote 1 is mainly due to measures announced in the Budget 2012 spending review and a decrease in funding for the bicentennial commemoration of the War of 1812 ($5.4 million).

The increase of $54.5 million in Vote 5 is mainly due to a combination of new funding for the 2015 Pan Am Games ($122.3 million), the transfer of some components of the Aboriginal Peoples' Program to Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada ($38.7 million) and to savings identified as part of the Budget 2012 Spending Review.

Canadian Human Rights Commission

Raison d'être

The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada is responsible for this organization.

The Canadian Human Rights Commission was established in 1977 under Schedule II of the Financial Administration Act in accordance with the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA). The Commission leads the administration of the CHRA and ensures compliance with the Employment Equity Act (EEA). The CHRA prohibits discrimination and the EEA promotes equality in the workplace. Both laws apply the principles of equal opportunity and non-discrimination to federal government departments and agencies, Crown corporations, and federally regulated private sector organizations.

The Canadian Human Rights Commission is estimating budgetary expenditures of $22.5 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $19.9 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $2.6 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The variance between 2011-12 expenditures and 2012-13 Main Estimates is mainly due to the severance pay cash-out in 2011-12 following the signing of a new collective agreement in June 2011 with the Public Service Alliance of Canada.

The variance between 2012-13 and 2013-14 Main Estimates is mainly due to funding received for the repeal of section 67 of the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA). This funding decreases in 2013 and should sunset in March 2014.

In 2013-14, the Commission will continue the transition of its program alignment regarding the processing of complaints subsequent to the repeal of section 67 of the CHRA, enabling members from First Nation communities to file complaints on matters under the Indian Act.

Over the next year, the Commission will also focus on:

Canadian Human Rights Tribunal

Raison d'être

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal is a quasi-judicial body that hears complaints of discrimination referred by the Canadian Human Rights Commission and determines whether the activities complained of violate the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA). The purpose of the CHRA is to protect individuals from discrimination and to promote equal opportunity. The Tribunal also decides cases brought under the Employment Equity Act and, pursuant to section 11 of the CHRA, determines allegations of wage disparity between men and women doing work of equal value in the same establishment.

The Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada is responsible for this organization.

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal is estimating budgetary expenditures of $4.5 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $4.1 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $403.6 thousand represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal is a small, permanent quasi-judicial organization comprising a full-time Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson, and up to 13 full or part-time members. The Chairperson is the chief executive officer of the Tribunal and is supported by the Executive Director and Senior Registrar who is responsible for registry operations and internal services.

The Tribunal is a demand-driven organization with a mandate dependent on referrals from the Canadian Human Rights Commission. In addition, changes within the external environment, government policies and the legislative mandate have an impact on the Tribunal's operating environment.

As a key mechanism of human rights protection in Canada, the Tribunal gives effect to the Canadian ideals of pluralism, equity, diversity and social inclusion. It provides a forum where human rights complaints can be scrutinized and resolved and provides definitive interpretations on important issues of discrimination. The primary result of the Tribunal's program is that complainants can air their grievances and achieve closure in a respectful, impartial forum. Moreover, respondents are able to test the validity of allegations made in a quasi-judicial setting. In the longer term, Tribunal decisions create meaningful legal precedents for use by employers, service providers and Canadians at large.

The repeal of Section 67 of the CHRA, which came into force in June 2011, extended human rights protection to individuals who were formerly unable to avail themselves of these protections. Decisions made or actions taken by band councils and the federal government under the Indian Act were, until recently, exempt from the application of the CHRA. Complaints that used to be filed with the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development pursuant to the Indian Act will now come before the Canadian Human Rights Commission. The Tribunal expects that the Commission will refer some of these specific complaints to it but cannot at this time predict how many. Moreover, some of the cases referred to the Tribunal are likely to be complex since they will be exploring new areas of human rights law, requiring additional time and resources for research, mediation, hearings and decisions.

Internal services make a critical contribution to the achievement of the Tribunal's singular primary program. Like small departments and other micro-agencies, the Tribunal continually faces pressure to respond to, or implement various government-wide management initiatives. The Tribunal will continue to actively seek horizontal opportunities and interdepartmental partnerships to achieve efficiencies. The Tribunal believes this approach will mitigate the pressure caused by increased demands, while ensuring it continues to be well positioned to carry out its statutory mandate.

Financially, approximately 60% of its $4.5 million operating budget is for salaries and benefits. Of the remaining $1.8 million in Operations and Maintenance, 40% is directly related to the adjudicative process such as per diem costs for part-time members, travel, facility rentals for hearings and mediation activities and translations of decisions and rulings.

Highlights

CIHR is estimating budgetary expenditures of $967.6 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $961.7 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $5.9 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

This represents a decrease of $36 million, or 3.6%, from the 2012-13 Estimates to date (including Main and Supplementary Estimates) of $1.004 billion. The decrease in planned spending is mainly due to the following:

CIHR's reference levels were also impacted by its partnership activities with other government departments who transfer funding for specific programs and initiatives. Changes in these funding agreements account for a net decrease of $2.6 million from the 2012-13 Estimates to date.

Canadian Intergovernmental Conference Secretariat

Raison d'être

The President of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada is responsible for this organization. The Canadian Intergovernmental Conference Secretariat (CICS), established pursuant to an agreement reached at the May 1973 First Ministers' Conference, is an agency of the federal, provincial and territorial governments. Its one program mandate is to provide administrative services for the planning and conduct of First Ministers, Ministers and Deputy Ministers level federal-provincial-territorial and provincial-territorial conferences.

These intergovernmental conferences are a key instrument for consultation and negotiation among the different orders of governments and assist the development of national and/or provincial/territorial policies. They are a critical component of the workings of the Canadian federation and represent a core principle of our democratic society.

By skilfully executing the logistical planning and delivery of these meetings, CICS not only relieves the federal-provincial-territorial governments of the process burden but also allows them to greatly benefit from significant cost efficiencies and economies of scale, particularly relevant in the current economic environment.

Highlights

The Canadian International Development Agency is estimating budgetary expenditures of $3,159.3 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $2,890.4 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $269 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The Agency's total budgetary spending will decrease by $252.1 million when compared to the previous year's Main Estimates. Factors contributing to the net decrease include:

The 2012-13 Estimates to date have been adjusted to reflect items included in the 2012-13 Supplementary Estimates, for the implementation of the Budget 2012 savings measures, as well as additional funding of $50 million for the Quick Release Mechanism.

Other annual fluctuations in spending authorities reflect the supplementary funding received for programs and initiatives such as the Fast Start Financing Initiative on climate change for which incremental funds of $345 million and $273 million were approved in 2011-12 and 2012-13 respectively.

Actual 2011-12 spending also includes statutory adjustments such as for debt relief and to account for currency fluctuations that are not included in the Main Estimates as the amounts for these items are finalized during the year.

Finally, the amounts of statutory payments to the World Bank for the Advance Market Commitment for Pneumococcal Vaccines are established and paid during the fiscal year and, as such, are presented for information purposes in the 2011-12 Public Accounts ($23 million) and the 2012-13 Estimates to date ($24.5 million).

Highlights

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal is estimating budgetary expenditures of $9.9 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $8.7 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $1.2 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The Tribunal's main priority for 2013-14 will continue to be the fair, timely and effective disposition of cases regarding the investigation of trade remedy cases, the complaints concerning federal government procurement and the adjudication of appeals on customs and excise matters. At the request of the Government, the Tribunal will continue to provide advice in tariff, trade, commercial and economic matters. The Tribunal will also continue to pursue initiatives aimed at further improving its management practices as well as its ability to deliver on its legislative mandates in order to provide efficient and reliable services to its stakeholders.

The decreasing trend in spending from 2011-12 to 2013-14 can be explained by the fact that 2011-12 was the last year that the Tribunal received additional funding of $1.575 million to cover a predicted operating budget shortfall resulting from an expected post-recession increase in caseload. As presented in Supplementary Estimates (B) 2012-13, the Tribunal received additional funding of $1.3 million to retrofit its accommodation. In 2013-14, the Tribunal will return to its regular funding base of nearly $10 million.

Canadian Museum for Human Rights

Raison d'être

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) was created in 2008 through an amendment to the Museums Act, which established the Museum as the first national museum to be created since 1967 and the first to be located outside of the National Capital Region. The Museum's mandate is “to explore the subject of human rights, with special but not exclusive reference to Canada, in order to enhance the public's understanding of human rights, to promote respect for others and to encourage reflection and dialogue.”

The Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages is responsible for this organization.

Highlights

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) is estimating budgetary expenditures of $31.7 million in 2013-14 which require approval by Parliament.

Museum Content and Program

In becoming the world's first museum dedicated to the exploration of human rights, the CMHR is breaking new ground; there is no precedent for a museum of this nature. In its early years, the primary focus of this activity will be on establishing an innovative and unique public program that includes developing a sound research and scholarship capacity; accessible and engaging exhibits and educational programming that promote reflection and dialogue; a strong capacity of national outreach, engagement and service to Canadians; and strong Marketing and Communications to ensure a high level of awareness about the CMHR and its programs and services.

Accommodation

The focus of this activity in the early years will be to manage all stages of the capital construction project-including choosing the final design-leading to its commissioning and public opening. The Board will be fully accountable for overseeing all aspects of the building project, including choosing the final design, establishing the time-frames for construction and managing risks throughout. Prior to the opening of the facility, the Museum will also be establishing the appropriate mechanisms to provide for effective, efficient operations and maintenance and its ongoing security, accessibility and sustainability.

Stewardship and Corporate Management

The Stewardship and Corporate Management Activity is aimed at ensuring the private and public funds invested in the Museum are managed in a transparent, accountable manner; that resources are effectively deployed, developed, directed, administered and controlled; and that the corporation optimizes the value it contributes to Canadians and Canadian society.

Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission

Raison d’être

The Minister of Natural Resources Canada is responsible for this organization.

In 1946, Parliament passed the Atomic Energy Control Act and established the Atomic Energy Control Board, providing it with the power to regulate all nuclear activities related to the development and use of atomic energy in Canada.

More than half a century later, in May 2000, the Nuclear Safety and Control Act (NSCA) came into effect and established the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) as the successor to the Atomic Energy Control Board, with responsibilities and authorities to regulate an industry that spans all segments of the nuclear fuel cycle and a wide range of industrial, medical and academic uses of nuclear substances.

Additional information can be found in the CNSC’s Report on Plans and Priorities.

Highlights

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission is estimating budgetary expenditures of $132.9 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $35.0 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $97.9 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

Budget 2012 earmarked funds to continue to strengthen the ability to regulate and inspect fee-exempt licensees for the use of nuclear devices and activities in Canada, including those at medical and educational institutions. During fiscal year 2012-13, the CNSC received $7.6 million permanently to regulate these fee-exempt licensees.

On August 4, 2011, Shared Services Canada was created by Order in Council under the Public Service Rearrangement and Transfer of Duties Act in order to pool existing resources from across Government to consolidate and transfer IT infrastructure (e.g., data centres and network services) for the Government of Canada. As a result, the CNSC’s funding levels decreased by $0.3 million in fiscal year 2011-12 and $1.5 million on a permanent base in fiscal year 2012-13.

Budget 2012 implemented savings measures in order to refocus Government and programs, make it easier for Canadians and business to deal with their Government, and modernize and reduce the back office. By the end of 2012-13, the first year of implementation, the CNSC will have achieved savings of $0.5 million. Savings of $1.3 million will be achieved on a permanent base in 2013-14. The CNSC will achieve these savings through efficiency measures and program reductions that align resources to its core mandate, scaling back where the need is reduced, transforming how it works internally, and consolidating and streamlining activities. With these changes, the CNSC will focus on supporting management excellence and accountability across Government.

Fiscal year 2012-13 is the final incremental decrease to the CNSC for the 2009 Strategic Review representing $0.8 million.

Additional information can be found in the CNSC’s Report on Plans and Priorities.

Highlights

The Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) is estimating budgetary expenditures of $57.8 million in 2013-14 which require approval by Parliament.

The CTC was created in 1995, as a Special Operating Agency within Industry Canada, and in 2001, became a Crown corporation pursuant to the Canadian Tourism Commission Act. The CTC reports to Parliament via the Minister of Industry. The CTC is Canada’s national tourism marketing organization mandated to: sustain a vibrant and profitable Canadian tourism industry; market Canada as a desirable tourist destination; support a cooperative relationship between the private sector and the governments of Canada, the provinces and the territories with respect to Canadian tourism; and, provide information about Canadian tourism to the private sector and to the governments of Canada, the provinces and the territories (CTC Act, current to June 2012).

In 2012, the CTC took part in the comprehensive review by the Government of Canada as outlined in Budget 2012, to return to balanced budgets over the medium-term. Budget 2012 Spending Review identified savings of $0.5 million in 2012-13 and $14.2 million starting 2013-14. This adjustment will result in CTC’s core appropriations (i.e. excluding one-time funding for special programs) of $71.5 million for 2012-13 and $57.8 million starting 2013-14. Since CTC’s budget is organized by calendar year, the aforementioned appropriations will translate into annual appropriations of $61.3 million for 2013 and $57.8 million for 2014. Consistent with this decision and with the objectives of the Federal Tourism Strategy, the CTC’s activities are aligned to focus resources on markets of strategic importance to Canada’s tourism industry.

Building on the 2012 to 2016 Corporate Plan, the CTC’s corporate objectives outlined in the 2013-17 Corporate Plan, are to:

The CTC has outlined four strategic priorities to guide the CTC in achieving the corporate objectives listed above. The four strategic priorities are as follows:

Canadian Transportation Accident Investigation and Safety Board

Raison d’être

The Canadian Transportation Accident Investigation and Safety Board is referred to as the Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) in its day-to-day activities. The TSB is an independent agency created in 1990 by an Act of Parliament. It operates at arm’s length from other government departments and agencies to ensure that there are no real or perceived conflicts of interest. TSB’s sole objective is to advance air, marine, rail and pipeline transportation safety. This mandate is fulfilled by conducting independent investigations into selected transportation occurrences to identify the causes and contributing factors and the safety deficiencies evidenced by an occurrence. TSB then makes recommendations to reduce or eliminate any such safety deficiencies and reports publicly on its investigations.

The TSB is part of the President of the Privy Council’s portfolio.

Highlights

The Canadian Transportation Accident Investigation and Safety Board is estimating budgetary expenditures of $29.6 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $26.1 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $3.5 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes. The department’s funding through Main Estimates has decreased from 2012-13 by $0.486 million, due to savings of $0.846 million identified as part of the Budget 2012 Spending Review and offset by an increase in funding for collective bargaining adjustments.

The TSB operational activities have remained consistent over the last few years and for the planning horizon. Significant variances between the TSB’s funding in Main Estimates and actual year-end expenditures are explained by additional sources of funding. The department receives additional funding through Supplementary Estimates and transfers from Treasury Board votes for the carry-forward of unused funds from the previous year, for collective bargaining adjustments, and for severance and parental benefits paid during the year.

In 2013-14, the TSB will continue to strive to be a world leader in influencing changes that advance transportation safety. This vision statement will be achieved by focusing on four strategic objectives: responding, managing, communicating and advocating. This four-pronged approach provides a clear framework to guide investments and activities for the planning horizon. Details on the TSB’s priorities will be available in its 2013-14 Report on Plans and Priorities.

Elections Canada is estimating budgetary expenditures of $115.9 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $30.1 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $85.8 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require further approval and is provided for information purposes.

Overall, the agency is estimating a net reduction of $20.3 million, or 15.0%, from the total of the 2012-13 Main Estimates and Supplementary Estimates. This is due to:

In 2011-12, the total expenditures were significantly higher than 2012-13 and 2013-14 estimates, mainly as a result of non-recurring expenditures of the 41st general election held on May 2, 2011.

Citizenship and Immigration

Raison d’être

In the first years after Confederation, Canada’s leaders had a powerful vision: to connect Canada by rail and make the West the world’s breadbasket as a foundation for the country’s economic prosperity. This vision meant quickly populating the Prairies, leading the Government of Canada to establish its first national immigration policies.

Immigrants have been a driving force in Canada’s nationhood and its economic prosperity - as farmers settling lands, as workers in factories fuelling industrial growth, as entrepreneurs and as innovators helping Canada to compete in the global, knowledge-based economy.

The Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism is responsible for this organization.

Highlights

The Correctional Service of Canada is estimating budgetary expenditures of $2,597.6 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $2,364.5 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $233.1 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes. This represents a net decrease of $428.4 million from 2012-13 Main Estimates.

The forecast for the next few years is decreasing. This trend is largely attributed to the return of funds related to projected inmate population growth which has not materialized with respect to the implementation of the Tackling Violent Crime Act and the Truth in Sentencing Act and the savings identified as part of the Budget 2012 Spending Review.

Highlights

The Courts Administration Service is estimating budgetary expenditures of $68.5 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $61.3 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $7.2 million represents the statutory funding forecast that does not require additional approval and is provided for information purposes.

The Courts Administration Service’s (CAS) core programs have remained relatively constant over the years. Nevertheless, CAS’ reference levels have been impacted by legislative changes affecting the workload of the federal courts as well as various government initiatives. The activities that have caused the majority of the variations in reference levels include:

The variance between 2012-13 Main Estimates and the 2012-13 Estimates to date is principally related to two factors. One is the renewal of the Division 9 proceedings under IRPA for a three-year period effective April 1, 2012. The renewal was funded through the 2012-13 Supplementary Estimates (B) process. The other factor is savings identified as part of the Budget 2012 Spending Review. The increase in the 2013-14 Estimates compared to the 2012-13 Estimates to date is mainly related to collective bargaining funding being reinstated to government departments. CAS has been absorbing increases related to collective agreements since cost containment measures were introduced in Budget 2010.

A significant variance from 2011-12 actuals to 2012-13 Estimates to date relates to expenditure for paylist requirements made in 2011-12 in the amount of $8 million. These expenditures are funded through a transfer from a Treasury Board Central Vote and include severance pay and termination benefits, vacation credits payable upon termination of employment, and parental benefits. Most of the expenses incurred in 2011-12 were for payments to employees who exercised the option to immediately receive accumulated severance pay. In addition, funding for the implementation of Bill C-11 is available within the Main Estimates, but related expenditures are contingent upon the appointment of judges. To date, no judges have been appointed. The last impact represents the effect of the reprofile of funding from future fiscal years provided in 2011-12, and the corresponding repayment in 2012-13 and future years.

More details on important trends and variances can be found in the CAS 2013-14 Report on Plans and Priorities, as well as the CAS Financial Statements Discussion and Analysis Document and the Quarterly Financial Reports.

Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec

Raison d’être

The mandate of Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec (CED) is to promote long-term economic development of the regions of Quebec by giving special attention to those where slow economic growth is prevalent or opportunities for productive employment are inadequate.

Its economic role positions CED at the forefront of the government’s priorities relating to the economy and jobs. CED has a physical presence in every region of Quebec and works in co-operation with community organizations. It supports communities and small and medium-sized enterprises to enable them to participate in the economy of the future and realize their full potential by building on their own strengths, and thereby helping to improve their performance, productivity and innovative capabilities. CED also supports regions facing major crises, helping to diversify their economic bases to improve their long-term viability.

The Minister of Transport, Infrasctructure and Communities and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec is responsible for this organization.

Highlights

The Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec is estimating budgetary expenditures of $254.9 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $250.0 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $4.9 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

The Agency’s 2013-14 Main Estimates reflect a decline of $45.8 million, or 15%, compared to the previous year. This decline is comprised of a decrease of $5.2 million dollars in the Operating Expenses budget, and a decrease of $40.6 million in the Grants and Contributions budget.

Factors in the decrease include:

Business Development: The Agency will continue to foster the development of businesses by supporting entrepreneurship and business performance. To contribute to Quebec’s economic growth and long-term prosperity, one of CED’s action priorities for 2013-14 is to help grow businesses, paying special attention to communities with weak growth potential. More specifically, this priority is implemented through support for entrepreneurship and the competitiveness of businesses, that is, productivity and expansion activities of manufacturing Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), SME innovation and technology transfer, and commercialization and exports.

Regional Economic Development: The Agency will also continue to support regional economic development by fostering regional engagement in economic development and stimulating investment in various regions of Quebec. To this end, the Agency will continue to encourage the regions’ efforts in obtaining collective facilities to enhance or build on their assets. It will also promote regional assets to increase tourist spending and attract investment from foreign firms and international organizations.

Strengthening Community Economies: To strengthen community economies, the Agency will continue to help rural communities adjust to the economic context through the Community Futures Program. It will also support infrastructure modernization by continuing to act as an operational partner with Infrastructure Canada in managing various programs in Quebec. The Agency will continue to support economic activity in Quebec communities through temporary initiatives in order to stabilize or strengthen their economies. One of the Agency’s operational priorities consists in helping strengthen the economies of the regions and communities with targeted temporary support through the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund.

Internal Services: Internal Services, which includes Governance and Management Support, Resource Management Services, and Asset Management Services, will continue to support program implementation in the Agency. In connection with Internal Services, one of the Agency’s priorities is to continue its transformation and modernization by proposing more accessible and more modern services to its clients; simplifying program implementation and building on a more modern, stimulating and efficient work environment.

Additional information regarding the authorities, mandate and programs of the Agency are available in the Report on Plans and Priorities.

Highlights

Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation is estimating budgetary expenditures of $51.8 million in 2013-14 which require approval by Parliament.

Main Estimates decrease of $5.5 million from 2012-13 levels, is based on the following factors:

  • The projection of long-term liability provisions confirms that the overall cost for environmental obligations is declining over each planning period as construction and engineering is completed on various sites; and
  • In addition, there are over 480 former employees participating in a number of Early Retirement Incentive Plans which were negotiated in the past through the collective bargaining process in response to downsizing and mine closures. The cost for these plans will decrease annually over the next 9 years as recipients reach age 65. The Early Retirement Incentive Plans are scheduled to expire in 2022.

Highlights

The significant variances between Environment Canada’s 2011-12 actual expenditures in the Public Accounts and the 2012-13 Main Estimates are due to adjustments and transfers during the fiscal year. For example, these include the carry forward, paylist expenditures and the statutory payment to Nature Conservancy of Canada. For fiscal year 2012-13, these changes will also be reflected in the Public Accounts. In addition, the transfer of responsibilities to Shared Services Canada was effective as of November 15th, 2011 and therefore was partially included in the 2011-12 Public Accounts. However, the 2012-13 Main Estimates and future years were reduced by the full amount of this transfer.

Environment Canada is estimating budgetary expenditures of $959.4 million in 2013-14. Of this amount, $870.5 million requires approval by Parliament. The remaining $88.8 million represents statutory forecasts that do not require additional approval and are provided for information purposes.

Compared with the 2012-13 Main Estimates, Environment Canada has a planned spending decrease of $13.3 million or 1.4% of which $12.3 million is in Operating and $2.8 million is in grants and contributions. These decreases are offset by an increase of $1.7 million in Capital and $0.1 million in the Employee Benefit Plan.

The major changes are:

  • A decrease in funding of $31.5 million related to the saving measures announced in the Budget 2012;
  • The sunsetting in 2012-13 of $1.6 million for the regulation of renewable fuels; and
  • Other miscellaneous decreases totalling $1.0 million.

These decreases are offset by an increase of $20.8 million related to three programs renewals:

  • An increase of $12.5 million due to the renewal of the Species at Risk Act program;
  • An increase of $4.2 million for the Lake Winnipeg Basin initiative; and
  • An increase of $4.1 million for the implementation of the Great Lakes Nutrient Initiative.
