(1) At the Courts Administration Service (the Service), non-respendable revenues consist primarily of fees levied for filing documents within the registries and for sales of photocopies of judgments and other revenues such as fines imposed by the Courts (i.e. contempt of Court, criminal conviction, etc.).

(2) Fine revenues are impossible to forecast and vary significantly in amount from year to year. As a result, actual amounts collected from fines from year to year could vary considerably from these estimates. These revenues are forecasted on a three (3) year average.

(3) Miscellaneous non-tax revenues consist primarily of other revenues, but mainly come from the Employment Insurance (EI) Account of Canada. At the end of each fiscal year, the Service determines the cost associated with the administration of Employment Insurance cases. The total cost allocated by the Service for handling EI cases is attributed to against Human Resources and Social Development Canada (HRSDC), the department responsible for the EI account.

As such, HRSDC would show an EI expense and the Service would show an equivalent, non-respendable revenue item. The purpose of this accounting exercise is to more accurately reflect the total cost of running the federal government's EI program and it is strictly internal to the government.
