[1] An ongoing priority has no end date; a previously committed priority has an estimated end date and was committed to in prior budgets or main estimates documents.

[2] Reduced spending in 2010-11 compared to 2009-10 is mainly due to the one-time funding for the Soldier Settlement Board payment in 2009-10. Reduced spending in the other years is mainly from the Forestry Market and Diversification programs.

[3] Funding increases in 2010-11 are for the Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Program, Clean Energy Fund (EAP initiative), Clean Energy Agenda, and ecoENERGY Retrofit (EAP initiative), and ecoENERGY for Biofuels programs.

[4] The reduction from 2010-11 funding levels in 2011-12 and 2012-13 is a result of lower planned spending under the Nuclear Legacy Liabilities program.

[5] Reduced spending under the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) initiative.

[6] All activities are performed on a cost recovery basis.

[7] Higher spending in 2009-10 and 2010-11 is attributable to the Modernizing Federal Laboratories Program (EAP initiative).

[8] Statutory programs under the Economic Opportunities for Natural Resources program activity – NRCan makes various statutory payments to Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador through its responsibility for offshore energy resources. The Atlantic Offshore Accords provide that the benefits of revenues from the offshore should flow to provinces as if the resources were on land.

[9] Planned spending includes adjustments for Supplementary Estimates Appropriated, Supplementary Estimates Statutory and other adjustments identified by Treasury Board.

[10] The increase of $105.6M in Vote 1 is mainly due to planned spending to support Canada's Economic Action Plan.

[11] A Capital Vote (Vote 5) has been established for fiscal year 2010-11 as planned spending exceeds the $5M threshold for establishing a capital vote.

[12] The increase of $1,205.6M in Vote 10 is mainly due to planned spending to deliver Canada's Economic Action Plan.
