Supplementary Estimates (C), 2015-16


Introduction

Structure of these Supplementary Estimates

This Supplementary Estimates document is presented in four sections:

  1. Introduction to Supplementary Estimates;
  2. Summary Tables;
  3. Details by Organization; and
  4. Annex.

Purpose and General Information

Each year, the government prepares Estimates in support of its request to Parliament for authority to spend public funds. This request for spending authority is formalized through the introduction of appropriation bills in Parliament. The Main Estimates and Supplementary Estimates are tabled in the House of Commons by the President of the Treasury Board and support Parliament's consideration of the appropriation bills. As with other bills, appropriation bills become law after being approved by both the House of Commons and the Senate and receiving Royal Assent.

The purpose of Supplementary Estimates is to present to Parliament information on the Government of Canada's 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. Also included for Parliament's information and eventual approval through an appropriation bill are such items as: transfers of money between Votes; debt deletion; loan guarantees; new or increased grants; and changes to Vote wording.

Supplementary Estimates documents are tabled in Parliament in advance of the related appropriation bill that, when approved, provides the necessary authority for the Government of Canada to spend monies from the Consolidated Revenue Fund to deliver its programs and services. This provides the various Standing Committees of Parliament with time to review proposed spending before the introduction of the appropriation bill.

Supplementary Estimates also provide updated information on changes to expenditure forecasts of statutory items for information purposes only. These expenditures already have legislative authority and so will not appear in the appropriation bill related to these Supplementary Estimates, but expenditure forecasts are available online.

It is the practice to table a Supplementary Estimates for each of the three Parliamentary Supply periods ending , , and . The Supplementary Estimates (C), 2015– are the third and final Supplementary Estimates for this fiscal year.

Summary of Estimates

Estimates to date 2015–

The 2015– Main Estimates were tabled on , supporting the government's request to Parliament for authority through annual appropriations to spend $88.2 billion in voted budgetary expenditures and $71.1 million in voted non-budgetary expenditures. The 2015– Main Estimates also presented information on the statutory amounts of $153.4 billion in budgetary expenditures and $933.4million in net non-budgetary outlays. Royal Assent for Appropriation Act No. 1, 2015– was granted on and provided interim supply to appropriation-dependent organizations until the end of . Royal Assent for Appropriation Act No. 2, 2015– was granted on and provided supply for the remainder of Main Estimates.

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2015– were tabled on and provided information in support of $3.1 billion in voted budgetary appropriations which represent an increase of 3.5% over Main Estimates. Information related to an increase of $19.8 million in forecast statutory expenditures was also presented. Royal Assent for Appropriation Act No. 3, 2015– was granted on .

Given the timing of the dissolution and reconvening of Parliament, Supplementary Estimates (B), 2015– was limited to items for which specific authority through the appropriation act was required before . The Supplementary Estimates (B), 2015– were tabled on and provided information in support of $810.1 million in voted budgetary appropriations which represent an increase of 0.9% over Main Estimates. Information related to an increase of $2.7 million in forecast statutory expenditures was also presented. Royal Assent for Appropriation Act No. 4, 2015– was granted on .

The Supplementary Estimates (C), 2015– provide information in support of $2.8 billion in voted budgetary appropriations which represent an increase of 3.2% over Main Estimates. These estimates also include one item relating to a change in non-budgetary expenditures (loans, investments and advances). Information related to an increase of $2.3 billion in forecast statutory expenditures and a decrease of $250.6 million in forecast non-budgetary statutory expenditures is available in a separate document online.

These Estimates include, for the first time, an online annex to summarize the frozen allotments in the voted authorities of all organizations at the time of tabling these Supplementary Estimates. This summary gives Parliament an early indication of the lapse expected in the 2016 Public Accounts.

Given the differences in timing of the preparation of the Main Estimates and the Budget, the 2015– Main Estimates do not include new measures from Budget 2015. Following an announcement in the Budget, organizations must prepare detailed spending plans for Treasury Board approval before new spending is presented in Estimates. As the amount of time needed to develop plans varies by initiative, new Budget measures will not all appear in the same Estimates. Items announced in Budgets 2013, 2014 and 2015 which appear in Estimates for the first time are identified in this document.

Major Items

The following section provides an overview of major voted initiatives included in these Supplementary Estimates in support of Parliamentary approval.

Treasury Board Secretariat: $435.2 million

Funding to address shortfalls under the Service Income Security Insurance Plan

This funding will restore financial health to the Service Income Security Insurance Plan (SISIP), which provides long-term disability benefits to Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members. A number of factors have resulted in a funding shortfall within SISIP, including an increase in medically-released CAF members, higher benefit payments, and the effect of persistent low interest rates. Funding in 2015-16 will resolve the current funding shortfall.

National Defence: $215.5 million

Funding related to military support for Canadaʼs assistance to Ukraine – Operation UNIFIER (Budget 2015), and operations against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria – Operation IMPACT

The Canadian Armed Forces are involved in international coalition efforts and training overseas to address sources of instability and threats to international security. In Iraq, Canada is contributing $208.7 million to the coalition fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). In Ukraine, Canada is providing the Canadian Armed Forces with $6.8 million in new funding, as part of Operation UNIFIER, to help train and build the capacity of Ukrainian forces personnel. The funding sought in these Supplementary Estimates will be used to cover the additional costs of Operation IMPACT (e.g. mission equipment support, ammunitions, repair and overhaul, overseas allowances, engineering support, etc.) and to deploy approximately 200 Canadian Armed Forces personnel to provide training assistance in Ukraine.

Employment and Social Development: $176.0 million

Funding to write off debts owed to the Crown for unrecoverable Canada Student Loans

This funding will be applied to write-off 33,967 debts related to Canada Student Loans. The Canada Student Loans Program provides financial assistance to post-secondary students in financial need. Amounts being written off are debts for which reasonable efforts to collect the amounts owed have been unsuccessful. The vast majority of these are debts of borrowers who defaulted in repayment prior to 2009-10.

Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development: $168.0 million

Funding for the Green Climate Fund in support of Canada's commitment to help developing countries to limit or reduce emissions and to help vulnerable countries to adapt to climate change impacts

This funding is part of the $2.65 billion announced in to help developing countries tackle climate change between 2015 and 2020. The Green Climate Fund is aimed at supporting projects, programs, policies, and other activities to address climate change in developing countries. Canada signed a $300 million funding arrangement with the Fund on .

Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development; Canada Border Services Agency; Citizenship and Immigration; Shared Services Canada; Public Health Agency of Canada: $147.4 million

Funding to implement the Government's response to the Syrian refugee crisis

This funding will support departments in the rapid resettlement of 25,000 Syrian refugees. Supporting activities include security screening of refugees abroad, processing at the Canadian ports of entry, diplomatic engagement with host countries, increased capacity at missions abroad, additional quarantine officers, interim lodging sites on an as-needed basis and public health surveillance. This funding also includes a $100 million grant to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to help respond to pressing needs, including shelter, protection, education and health services for those affected by the Syrian crisis.

Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development: $121.1 million

Funding for foreign currency fluctuations from the payments of assessed contributions to international organizations and from operations incurred at missions abroad

This funding is to address non-discretionary cost increases due to the significant decline in the value of the Canadian dollar vis-à-vis most major foreign currencies over the last year. As the main service provider for the Government of Canada abroad, the department expends considerable resources outside of Canada that are subject to currency exchange fluctuations. This includes expenditures on operating costs incurred at missions; locally-engaged staff salaries, pension benefits, insurance and social security programs; and payments for assessed contributions, which are dues the Government of Canada pays to join or maintain its status within various international organizations, such as the United Nations or World Health Organization. Given the significant decline in the value of the Canadian dollar over the last year, the department faces increased costs of $44 million for currency losses incurred at missions abroad and $99 million for currency losses on assessed contributions. This funding will partially defray the increased costs.

Fisheries and Oceans: $116.1 million

Funding for the construction of three Offshore Fisheries Science Vessels for the Canadian Coast Guard

This funding will support the construction of three Canadian Coast Guard Offshore Fisheries Science Vessels (OFSV). The OFSV are the first vessels to be built at Vancouver Shipyards under the non-combat portion of the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy. The ships are required to conduct fishing and acoustic surveys, collect data for stock assessments, and monitor changes in marine ecosystems and their impact on fisheries resources. Delivery of the vessels is expected by 2017–18.

Veterans Affairs: $81.3 million

Funding for benefits under Disability Awards and Allowances and increased demand for Health, Rehabilitation and Support Services

Veterans Affairs Canada provides financial, health care and rehabilitation support, such as disability awards and treatment benefits, to eligible Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans, their families and other eligible recipients. The requested funds are required to support an increase in the number of disability benefit applications processed, and increased requirements for health services for items such as prescription drugs and mental health care services.

Indian Affairs and Northern Development: $64.5 million

Funding for out-of-court settlements

Out-of-court settlements reduce the liability of the Government in a manner that is less adversarial than through a court process. Out-of-court settlements reflect Canadaʼs ongoing commitment to resolving outstanding grievances with First Nations through negotiation, rather than litigation, where possible. Funds will be directed towards concluding an out-of-court settlement with a Québec First Nation that relates to alleged errors in the management of reserve lands.

Office of Infrastructure of Canada: $61.8 million

Funding for New Bridge for the St. Lawrence Corridor Project

The New Bridge for the St. Lawrence Corridor project is being built to replace the existing Champlain Bridge in Montreal. The project includes a new bridge for the St. Lawrence (from Montreal to the South Shore), a new Nuns' Island Bridge and reconstruction and widening of the federal portion of Autoroute 15. Construction work began in the summer of 2015. The new bridge for the St. Lawrence is expected to be completed and open to traffic by , and the rest of the corridor is expected to be completed by . Funding in these Estimates will support entering into a Project Agreement, through a public-private partnership model, for the design, construction, financing, operation, maintenance and rehabilitation of the project.

Canada Border Services Agency, Citizenship and Immigration, Employment and Social Development: $58.9 million

Funding to continue to implement and administer reforms to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and the International Mobility Program

These funds will support reforms to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to allow it to focus on ensuring that Canadians have the opportunity to fill job vacancies before the use of temporary foreign workers is considered. The reforms also allow the International Mobility Programs to focus on the entry of foreign nationals in order to advance Canada's national economic and cultural interest, rather than to fill particular jobs. These programs will improve the use of detailed labour market information and the collection of employer data, and will take measures to ensure that those abusing these programs and/or abusing temporary foreign workers are identified and penalized. Under both of these programs, fees collected from employers and work permit applicants are deposited in the Consolidated Revenue Fund.

Canada Revenue Agency: $54.6 million

Funding for the implementation and administration of various legislative and enhanced compliance measures (Budget 2015)

Funding will increase the Agency's capacity to administer six new and enhanced legislative measures, including the enhanced Universal Child Care Benefit, the Family Tax Cut and the Small Business Job Credit. The funding will also cover seven tax compliance measures, strengthening audit and review capacity in key areas such as the underground economy, offshore tax evasion and aggressive tax avoidance by the largest and most complex business entities.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police: $50.4 million

Funding for the federal costs of Contract Policing services for all contract jurisdictions

This incremental funding is for the federal share of costs to deliver RCMP contract policing services across Canada in all provinces (except Ontario and Quebec) and the three territories, including at the municipal level. This permanent funding increase is related to incremental resource requests from the contracting jurisdictions for Fiscal Years 2014-15 and 2015-16, made pursuant to the 2012 Police Services Agreements.

Funding to continue to implement and administer reforms to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and the International Mobility Program
These funds will support reforms to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to allow it to focus on ensuring that Canadians have the opportunity to fill job vacancies before the use of temporary foreign workers is considered. The reforms also allow the International Mobility Programs to focus on the entry of foreign nationals in order to advance Canada's national economic and cultural interest, rather than to fill particular jobs. These programs will improve the use of detailed labour market information and the collection of employer data, and will take measures to ensure that those abusing these programs and/or abusing temporary foreign workers are identified and penalized. Under both of these programs, fees collected from employers and work permit applicants are deposited in the Consolidated Revenue Fund.

Funding to expand biometric screening in Canada's immigration system
The use of biometric information (fingerprints and digital photos) in immigration screening is an effective means to combat identity fraud and abuse of Canada's immigration system, while facilitating travel for genuine travellers. This funding will support the expansion of biometric screening to all foreign nationals (excluding U.S. citizens) applying for a work or study permit, as well as those applying for a visitor visa. It will also apply to permanent residency applications. This expansion of biometric collection builds on the Temporary Resident Biometrics Project which requires 30 visa-required nationalities to provide biometric information.

Division 9 procedures prevent inadmissible non-citizens from obtaining permanent legal status in Canada; establish/confirm their inadmissibility before Canadian courts; mitigate security risks while they are in Canada (through arrest, detention and condition of release); and ultimately remove them from Canada. The funding will also continue to support the provision of counsel under the Special Advocates Program.
