Figure 1: Departmental Spending Trend

Overall, Figure 1 shows an increase of Infrastructure Canada's spending for the period of 2013-2014 to 2018-2019, with annual spending recorded and planned going from $3.5 billion to close to $4.7 billion.

The graph also highlights the stability of infrastructure funding provided through the Gas Tax Fund (GTF) with spending at around $2 billion a year, as Statutory Funding in 2014-2015 and beyond.

Departmental spending and planned spending from 2013-14 to 2018-19 is as follows:

  • In 2013-14, the Actual Spending was $3.5 billion;
  • In 2014-15, the Actual Spending is $3.6 billion;
  • In 2015-16, the Forecast Spending is $3.6 billion;
  • In 2016-17, the Planned Spending is $3.3 billion;
  • In 2017-18, the Planned Spending is $4.2 billion; and
  • In 2018-19, the Planned Spending is $4.7 billion.

Of note, the expected spending increases coming from the new funding programs, as well as from upcoming policy changes that will enable any unallocated infrastructure funds to be made available to our funding partners, are not yet reflected in Figure 1. Any future spending increases will be captured under the corresponding (2016-2017) Departmental Performance Report (DPR) and future reports.
