Departmental Spending Trend
Figure 4 represents Infrastructure Canada's actual spending from 2010-2011 to 2012-2013 and planned spending for 2013-14 to 2014-2015. Beginning in 2009-2010, spending began to rise due to the Economic Action Plan (EAP) programs of 2009, peaking in 2010-2011 and then decreasing in 2011-2012 with the closing out of stimulus initiatives.
While actual spending was lower than planned, 2012-2013 was another successful year for the Department with over $3.7 billion in infrastructure funding flowed to partners, a level higher than pre-EAP funding, leveraging additional contributions from funding partners. Fewer large-scale projects were completed than forecasted by project proponents during the reporting period as some large-scale projects funded under the Building Canada Fund – Major Infrastructure Component and Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund experienced delays as a result of inclement weather, technical and other construction-related complexities.
The line graph shows that Infrastructure Canada's spending began to rise due to the Economic Action Plan (EAP) programs of 2009, peaking in 2010-2011 and then decreasing in 2011-2012 with the closing out of stimulus initiatives. In addition, planned spending for 2013-14 and beyond does not include future spending for the next long-term plan for public infrastructure, as financial details are not yet available. Departmental spending from 2010-11 to 2014-15 is as follows:
- In 2010-11, the Actual Spending was $6.2 billion;
- In 2011-12, the Actual Spending was $4.5 billion;
- In 2012-13, the Actual Spending was $3.7 billion;
- In 2013-14, the Planned Spending is $3.9 billion; and
