 Statistics Canada defines "core public infrastructure" as comprising the following asset categories: bridges, roads, water, wastewater, public transit, and cultural and recreational facilities.
 The New Building Canada Plan provides approximately $53 billion, including $6 billion from existing program funding, e.g. funding under the Building Canada Fund – Major Infrastructure Component and $47 billion in new funding.
 Allocations for Transfer Payment Programs presented on this page are original allocations and do not reflect transfers out.
 The Policy on Management, Resources and Results Structures (MRRS) underwent some changes which took effect on April 1, 2012. Updates have been made to the MRRS nomenclature. Specifically, "Program Activity Architecture" became "Program Alignment Architecture", "Program Activity" became "Program", "Sub-Activity" became "Sub-Program", and "Sub-Sub-Activity" became "Sub-Sub-Program".
 Type is defined as follows: previously committed to—committed to in the first or second fiscal year prior to the subject year of the report; ongoing—committed to at least three fiscal years prior to the subject year of the report; and new—newly committed to in the reporting year of the Report on Plans and Priorities (RPP).
 Planned Spending consists mainly of contribution amounts that are needed to meet the cash flow requirements of our partners. Spending can be slower than forecasted due to delays in planning and implementing projects (e.g., difficulties in securing local funding, project re-scoping, severe weather, labour shortages, environmental assessments), or partners do not submit claims to the federal government in a timely fashion.
 Totals may not add due to rounding.
 There is no Planned Spending for the timely, targeted and temporary stimulus programs under this Strategic Outcome as they were completed prior to 2012-2013. They are included in this table only to document Actual Spending for fiscal years 2010-2011 and 2011-2012.
 These amounts include operating funding for core administration and program delivery. Planned Spending for 2014-2015 only reflects opening balances. As Infrastructure Canada does not have a permanent source of operating budget, the amounts for 2014-2015 will be increased once the operating budget for this year is approved by Treasury Board.
 Historically, amounts reported under Internal Services have included spending related to the Shared Information Management System for Infrastructure (SIMSI). In 2012-2013, spending related to the SIMSI was reported against the specific infrastructure programs that the technology directly supported.
 The funding profile under the Green Infrastructure Fund has been extended to March 31, 2019 to allow for the completion of projects with federal funding commitments.
 As a result of the 2010 Strategic Review, Infrastructure Canada is saving $5.4 million on administration by improving the delivery of the BCF-CC. These funds are available for other Government of Canada priorities. No announced infrastructure projects have been cancelled or otherwise affected as a result of these funding reductions.
 As a result of the 2010 Strategic Review, Infrastructure Canada is saving $4.9 million on administration by improving the delivery of the BCF-MIC. These funds are available for other Government of Canada priorities. No announced infrastructure projects have been cancelled or otherwise affected as a result of these funding reductions.
 Of the $4.3 billion originally allocated to the CSIF, approximately $50 million has been transferred to Parks Canada Agency to support a high priority infrastructure project. These funds were reallocated through Estimates processes prior to 2012-2013.
 As a result of the 2010 Strategic Review, $23 million in unallocated funds from MRIF was reallocated to other Government priorities. These funds were removed from departmental reference levels through Estimates processes prior to 2012-2013. No projects have been cancelled or otherwise affected as result of this reallocation.
 Of the $600 million originally allocated to the BIF, approximately $18 million has been transferred to Canada Border Services Agency for border projects. These funds were reallocated through the Estimates prior to 2012-2013.
As part of the 2010 Strategic Review, $10.4 million in unallocated funds from the Border Infrastructure Fund was identified for reallocation to other Government priorities. Prior to 2012-2013, $5.2 million was removed from departmental reference levels through the 2011-2012 Supplementary Estimates. An additional $5.2 million was removed through the 2012-2013 Main Estimates. No projects have been cancelled or otherwise affected as result of this reallocation.
 As part of the 2010 Strategic Review, more than $35.7 million in unallocated funds from the Economic Analysis and Research program was identified for reallocation to other Government priorities. Prior to 2012-2013, $20.2 million was removed from departmental reference levels through Supplementary Estimates. An additional $4.5 million was removed through 2012-2013 Main Estimates with the balance removed in the 2013-2014 Main Estimates.
 Actual Spending under this program included Contributions only, related to the long-term plan engagement process, and therefore there were no Operating and Maintenance costs.
 The planned FTE of 27 was based on the planned requirements up to that time, prior to the start of fiscal year 2012-2013. After the 2012-2013 Report on Plans and Priorities was tabled, funds under this program were reallocated to other Government priorities, and as a result, FTEs were reassigned to other priority programs during fiscal year 2012-2013.
 Historically, costs reported under Internal Services have included spending related to departmental programs, including spending related to the Shared Information Management System for Infrastructure. Beginning in fiscal year 2012-2013, spending related to specific infrastructure programs were reported against the program accordingly.
 Information on audit and evaluation activities for each transfer payment program is provided under items 17 and 18 of the Details of Transfer Payment Programs section of the Supplementary Information Tables.
