Summary of Financial Information

As an introduction to the detailed financial and other information contained in this section, the following text provides a brief summary of the department's overall budget.

The department's budget is allocated through Main and Supplementary Estimates approved by Parliament. The department has three voted appropriations (related to operating expenditures, capital expenditures, and grants and contributions) and three statutory authorities. For 2007-2008, the budget will be allocated as follows: roughly 43 percent for operating expenditures, 4 percent for capital expenditures, and 24 percent for grants and contributions. Approximately 68 percent of the grants and contributions are made up of assessed contributions pertaining to Canada's membership in international organizations. Statutory expenditures account for the rest.

Human resources expenditures, excluding $105 million related to employee benefits plans, account for approximately 36 percent of the budget. In general, human resources expenditures, aside from those related to Passport Canada, are funded through voted appropriations. However, employee benefit plans are statutory payments. All expenses related to Passport Canada are statutory payments approved by Parliament.

The department's planned spending for 2007-2008 will be $2,832.7 million, an increase of $151.5 million over the amount allocated in the Main Estimates for the fiscal year. The additional funding is intended to cover:

  • an increase in Export Development Canada's Canada Account;
  • increased funding for Canada's Global Peace and Security Program;
  • funding to prepare for, implement and administer the 2006 Canada-United States softwood lumber agreement;
  • funding for the Moscow chancery and residential accommodation project;
  • compensation for foreign inflation rates that exceed the rate in Canada; and
  • compensation for increased salary costs as per collective bargaining agreements.

These higher costs will be offset by decreases resulting from:

  • full implementation of the Budget 2005 Expenditure Review Committee reductions, totalling $35.8 million annually;
  • implementation of the Budget 2006 Spending Restraint reductions, totalling $34.8 million for fiscal year 2007-2008, as well as $18.6 million on an ongoing basis;
  • a reduction in the assessed contributions related to Canada's membership in international organizations; and
  • foreign currency adjustments to reflect the rise in the value of the Canadian dollar vis-Ó-vis other currencies.

It should also be noted that the department's planned spending for 2007-2008 includes scheduled funding reductions totalling $7.52 million related to procurement reform (part of a process led by Public Works and Government Services Canada [PWGSC]). While these cuts are incorporated into its business plans, the department continues to work closely with Treasury Board, PWGSC and other affected departments on implementation of the procurement reforms and associated cuts, with particular emphasis on their expected impact on operations in the years ahead.
