Departmental spending trend graph

Departmental spending trend graph. Description follows.
Description for image: Departmental spending trend graph

This bar graph illustrates the Agency's actual spending for fiscal years 2015-16 and 2016-17 and planned spending for fiscal years 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21. Financial figures are presented in dollars along the y axis, increasing by $100 million and ending at $900 million. These are graphed against fiscal years 2015-16 to 2020-21 on the x axis. On a secondary y axis, the actual and planned FTEs have been plotted.

For each fiscal year, amounts for the Agency's program expenditures and statutory vote are identified.

In 2015-16, actual spending was $154.2 million for statutory items, $595.1 million for program expenditures for a total of $749.4 million.

In 2016-17, actual spending was $161.5 million for statutory items and $624.4 million for program expenditures for a total of $785.9 million.

Planned spending for statutory items goes from $130.4 million in 2017-18, to $137.7 million in 2018-19, to $132.8 million in 2019-20 and to $132.8 million in 2020-21.

Planned spending for program expenditures goes from $647.3 million in 2017-18, to $561.4 million in 2018-19, to $505.9 million in 2019-20 and to 506.0 million in 2020-21.

Total planned spending goes from $777.7 million in 2017-18, to $699.1 million in 2018-19, to $638.7 million in 2019-20 and to 638.8 million in 2020-21.

For the Full Time Equivalent (FTE), it goes from 5,901 in 2015-16, to 6,101 in 2016-17, to 6,118 in 2017-18, to 5,944 in 2018-19, to 5,519 in 2019-20 and to 5,519 in 2020-21.

The CFIA's actual spending and full-time equivalents (FTEs) increased in 2016-17 mainly due to an increase in temporary resources for: the federal infrastructure initiative; the digital service delivery platform initiative; the Improved food safety for Canadians initiative; and statutory payments made to compensate Canadians for plants or animals ordered destroyed for the purpose of disease control. In addition, the Agency realigned existing resources and FTEs from its programs to Internal Services to comply with the April 2016 amendment to the Treasury Board requirements for classifying Internal Services activities.

In 2017-18, the Agency is forecasting expenditures that are slightly lower than 2016-17. This is due to a reduction in the forecast for statutory compensation payments made to Canadians to compensate them for animals or plants ordered destroyed for the purpose of disease control, partially offset by the anticipated ratification of some collective agreements and the resulting one-time retroactive salary disbursements.

In 2018-19, planned spending and FTEs decrease compared to the previous year's forecast primarily due to: one-time pay disbursements related to the anticipated ratification of collective agreements in 2017-18 and the sunsetting of funding for various initiatives and projects.

Further decreases in planned spending are anticipated in 2019-20 and 2020-21 largely due to the sunsetting of various initiatives and projects.

When including anticipated renewal of sunsetting resources, Agency spending and FTE utilization is forecasted to be more stable.

Future-Oriented Condensed Statement of Operations

The Future-Oriented Condensed Statement of Operations provides a general overview of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's operations. The forecast of financial information on expenses and revenues is prepared on an accrual accounting basis to strengthen accountability and to improve transparency and financial management.

Because the Future-Oriented Condensed Statement of Operations is prepared on an accrual accounting basis, and the forecast and planned spending amounts presented in other sections of the Departmental Plan are prepared on an expenditure basis, amounts may differ.

A more detailed Future-Oriented Statement of Operations and associated notes, including a reconciliation of the net cost of operations to the requested authorities, are available on the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's website.

Future-Oriented Condensed Statement of Operations
for the year ended March 31, 2019 (dollars)
Financial information 2017–18 Forecast results 2018–19 Planned results Difference (2018–19 Planned results minus 2017–18 Forecast results)
Total expenses 853,798,000 813,335,000 (40,463,000)
Total revenues 54,736,000 52,201,000 (2,535,000)
Net cost of operations before government funding and transfers 799,062,000 761,134,000 (37,928,000)

The forecast results for fiscal year 2017-18 and planned results for fiscal year 2018-19 slightly differ. The difference noted in the expenses is mainly explained by the anticipated ratification of one of the expired collective agreements for fiscal year 2017-18; the statutory authority compensation payments between both years; and the sunsetting of funding for various initiatives and projects.
