Figure 1.1. Whole-of-Government Framework

This image is an illustration of the whole-of-government framework. The purpose of the framework is to present a whole-of-government reporting structure by linking the strategic outcomes and program activities of federal departments, agencies, and Crown corporations to spending areas and outcome areas defined for the federal government as a whole.

The framework consists of four spending areas: Economic Affairs, Social Affairs, International Affairs, and Government Affairs. These are presented vertically on the left-hand side of the figure. To the right of these spending areas are the 13 Government of Canada outcome areas. The outcome areas are also presented vertically and are grouped by spending area.

Within Economic Affairs, there are five outcome areas: income security and employment for Canadians; strong economic growth; an innovative and knowledge-based economy; a clean and healthy environment; and, lastly, a fair and secure marketplace.

Within Social Affairs, there are four outcome areas: healthy Canadians; a safe and secure Canada; a diverse society that promotes linguistic duality and social inclusion; and, lastly, a vibrant Canadian culture and heritage.

Within International Affairs, there are four outcome areas: a safe and secure world through international cooperation; global poverty reduction through sustainable development; a strong and mutually beneficial North American partnership; and, lastly, a prosperous Canada through global commerce.

Finally, Government Affairs, the fourth spending area, is presented at the very bottom of the figure. It spans the full width of the page to represent its support of all spending and outcome areas. Government Affairs is marked by an asterisk. The explanatory text states that Government Affairs consists of federal organizations that support all departments and agencies through the provision of government services (for example, the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, the Public Service Commission of Canada, Public Works and Government Services Canada).

On the right-hand side of the graphic are examples to demonstrate the whole-of-government reporting structure. The examples show how the strategic outcomes and related program activities of three federal organizations correspond to the 13 Government of Canada outcome areas and four spending areas.

The first example is from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. The Agency's program activity of "Enterprise Development" supports the following strategic outcome: "A competitive Atlantic Canadian economy." This then links to the outcome area of strong economic growth and, ultimately, to the Economic Affairs spending area.

The second example is from Canadian Heritage. Three of Canadian Heritage's program activities are listed: promotion of intercultural understanding; community development and capacity building; and participation in community and civic life. These program activities are all linked to the following strategic outcome: Canadians live in an inclusive society built on intercultural understanding and citizen participation. The whole is then linked to the outcome area of a diverse society that promotes linguistic duality and social inclusion, which relates to the Social Affairs spending area.

The third example is from the Canada Border Services Agency. Three of its program activities are listed: security, access, and science- and technology-based innovation. These program activities link to the following strategic outcome: efficient and effective border management that contributes to the security and prosperity of Canada. This is then linked to the outcome area of a strong and mutually beneficial North American partnership, which corresponds to the International Affairs spending area.

At the very bottom of the figure, positioned at left under the four spending areas and 13 Government of Canada outcome areas, are the words Canada's Performance 2008-09, which is the title of the annual whole-of-government report tabled in Parliament. From that title, a right-pointing arrow leads to the following text: electronic version of departmental performance reports. That text is positioned under the examples provided of the strategic outcomes and program activities of the three federal organizations. The electronic version of departmental performance reports provides details on the more than 400 program activities undertaken by federal organizations and on their more than 200 strategic outcomes, whereas Canada's Performance examines these organizations' contributions from a whole-of-government perspective.
