Today, the Honourable Mona Fortier, President of the Treasury Board of Canada, tabled the Supplementary Estimates (A), 2022–23, in the House of Commons.
These Supplementary Estimates propose $8.8 billion in voted budgetary spending across 26 federal organizations. Among the investments are $3.6 billion to support priorities for Indigenous communities, $1.4 billion for existing and emerging COVID‑19 treatments, $853 million to support Canada’s response to the invasion of Ukraine, and $323 million to encourage the use of zero‑emission vehicles.
The Supplementary Estimates also show, for information purposes, forecast budgetary statutory expenditures of $860 million, mainly due to updated forecasts in Budget 2022 for interest costs and Old Age Security payments.
The Estimates family of documents, including the Supplementary Estimates, provides Canadians and parliamentarians with necessary transparency into how government is investing to meet priorities.
The government continues to invest in Indigenous communities, Canadians’ health, well being, and security, while also recognizing the importance of supporting international partners who share our democratic values.”
