Figure 3: Departmental Spending Trend

Figure 3 represents the department's actual spending for 2010-11 and 2011-12, forecast spending for 2012-13 and planned spending for 2013-14 to 2015-16.

Since 2009-10, the Departmental spending has continued to rise, peaking in 2010-11 with the implementation of the programs under the Economic Action Plan. From 2010-11 to 2013-14, the level of planned spending declines as the programs under the EAP were completed in 2011-12 (with the exception of the Green Infrastructure Fund, which extends beyond 2013-14. The Department will continue to flow funding towards the implementation of its existing programs under the Building Canada plan.

The line graph shows that Infrastructure Canada's spending has steadily declined since 2010-11, with the close-out of the two programs under the Economic Action Plan. 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.
