Future-Oriented Statement of Operations
The future-oriented condensed statement of operations presented in this section is intended to serve as a general overview of the Environment Canada operations. The forecasted financial information on expenses and revenues are prepared on an accrual accounting basis to strengthen accountability and to improve transparency and financial management. Because the future-oriented statement of operations is prepared on an accrual accounting basis and the forecast and planned spending amounts presented in other sections of this report are prepared on an expenditure basis, amounts will differ. A more detailed future-oriented statement of operations to the requested authorities, can be found on the Environment Canada’s website.
|Financial Information||Estimated Results|
|Net cost of operations||1,037,300,319||1,099,571,073||62,270,754|
Total expenses are expected to increase by $52.6 million in 2014–15 in comparison to the estimated results of 2013-14. The overall increase is mainly due to additional funding for the Sustainable Development Technology Canada Foundation (SDTC) and the Action Plan on Clean Water initiative. The increase is offset by a reduction of planned spending to foundations, such as Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), and additional savings measures as announced in Budget 2012. Total revenues are expected to decrease by $9.7 million in 2014–15 due to the timing of revenue collections related to Oil Sands Monitoring activities.
For comparative purposes, 2014–15 includes Main Estimates where 2013–14 gives the reader information on actuals, Mains, Supplementary Estimates A and B, and anticipated Supplementary Estimates C. It does not include the reimbursement of collective agreements and the carry-forwards.

Tax Expenditures and Evaluations
The tax system can be used to achieve public policy objectives through the application of special measures such as low tax rates, exemptions, deductions, deferrals and credits. The Department of Finance publishes cost estimates and projections for these measures annually in the Tax Expenditures and Evaluations publication. The tax measures presented in the Tax Expenditures and Evaluations publication are the sole responsibility of the Minister of Finance.
