Government of Canada Tables 2014-2015 Main Estimates with $800-Million Decrease in Planned Voted Expenditures

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/27/14 -- Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat

Today, the Government of Canada tabled the 2014-2015 Main Estimates in the House of Commons.

This year's Main Estimates reflect a steady decrease in voted appropriations, with this year's voted budgetary amount down nearly $800 million from last year.

The Main Estimates provide information on $235.3 billion in planned budgetary expenditures for the 2014-2015 fiscal year. This amount includes $86.3 billion in planned voted expenditures, which have decreased from $87.1 billion in 2013-2014, and $149 billion in statutory expenditures. Statutory spending has increased by $3.53 billion, largely due to changes in the forecast of elderly benefits and the Canada Health Transfer.

Quick Facts

--  The Main Estimates support the Government's request for Parliament's
    approval of expenditures that were already planned for in Canada's
    Economic Action Plan 2013 or in previous decisions.
--  The Main Estimates reflect the Government's resource allocation
    priorities for the fiscal year. The voted amounts represent maximum "up
    to" ceilings or estimates and may not be fully spent during the course
    of the year. Actual expenditures are found in the Public Accounts.
--  These estimates, combined with the Reports on Plans and Priorities,
    Public Accounts, and Departmental Performance Reports, help inform
    Parliament and hold the Government to account for allocating and
    managing public funds.
--  The Main Estimates voted appropriations include the following items,
    which were announced in Economic Action Plan (EAP) 2013:
    --  an increase of $311.7 million for Health Canada to stabilize, renew,
        and expand important health programs and services for First Nations
        and Inuit communities;
    --  the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's $253.1 million
        Investment in Affordable Housing program, as well as $70 million for
        housing in Nunavut; and
    --  an increase of $59.6 million for the National Research Council of
        Canada to realign industry-focused research.
--  Any planned expenditures announced in EAP 2014 will be included in
    future Estimates documents.

HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box.
