OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb 19, 2016) - Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat
The Honourable Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board, today tabled the 2015-16 Supplementary Estimates (C) in the House of Commons.
The 2015-16 Supplementary Estimates (C) provide information to support the Government's request for Parliament to approve $ 2.8 billion in voted appropriations for 58 organizations to continue government programs and initiatives of importance to Canadians. It also provides an overview of 13 major initiatives that will be supported by this funding.
A Supply Bill seeking Parliament's approval to spend funds in line with these Supplementary Estimates will be tabled no later than March 26.
"Through these Supplementary Estimates, we are seeking access to funds that will allow the Government to address priorities that Canadians want us to focus on, including support for our men and women in uniform, the environment and the resettlement of Syrian refugees."
"The Government is committed to strengthening Parliament's oversight of government spending. We have already improved reporting on government spending by adding, for the first time, an online annex to the Supplementary Estimates listing the anticipated lapses of federal organizations. We will continue to engage with Parliamentarians and other stakeholders to improve the estimates process."
