While we're on the auto deal, GM made an early repayment as well. So it's not unique to just Chrysler, but this fiscal year it was just Chrysler.
In slide 4, we have the history of the last couple of years of estimates. I think we've gone through that in enough detail that I won't touch on it for now.
In slide 5, we have for you highlights of major voted items in this estimates document, supplementary estimates (B). I won't read them all for you but just bring to your attention that you've got some clean energy programs. You will see a fair amount in this document about the estimates related to clean energy programs.
There are supplementary health benefits for nursing services in remote and isolated first nations of $218 million.
There is assessment management remediation of contaminated sites for $218 million as well. Again, just to highlight the difference between estimates and the budget, this is the amount that is intended to be spent this year to remediate contaminated sites. The actual contaminated sites liability for the Government of Canada is much greater than this, but this is the amount of money that is to be spent this year.
We also have an update to the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement of $179 million.
About the write-off of student loan debts of $151 million, there is a bit of context. For about 95% of these loans, the statute of limitations has kicked in. They're more than six years' old. CRA has been trying to collect them, and that time is now expired. When that happens, we write them off. This is a fairly regular occurrence. If you're curious about debt write-off related to student loans, roughly 87% of student loans get repaid these days. There's an outstanding receivable related to Canada student loans, if I recall correctly, of close to $14 billion on the government's financial statements.
Slide 6 is dedicated to environmental spending. Again, I've mentioned the clean air agenda already, but there are five pieces to this and you'll see funding in supplementary estimates (B). These are some of the horizontal items related to adaptation, clean air regulatory agenda, and other items. These are items that include multiple departments, so you will see things like the ecoENERGY retrofit homes program, as well as the clean transportation initiatives. There's a variety of departments implicated here. I've already mentioned the federal contaminated sites action plan related to environmental liabilities.
Turning to reprofiles, something that is not included in the estimates documents but which I think is of interest to members is that when a department does not spend the money in the previous fiscal year because of project delays, etc., it can reprofile it into the new year, which basically means it transfers the authority to spend from one year to the next. Because Parliament approves appropriation bills on an annual basis, we need Parliament's approval to spend that money again, even though it's already been approved in a previous year. So roughly $2 billion of these estimates relate to reprofiles. It's not new money; it's money that was initially envisaged to be spent in a previous year but the department has made its case and brought it forward to be reprofiled.
The minister already spoke about the infrastructure stimulus fund, at $709 million, as well as the Building Canada fund communities component top-up of $163 million.
Roughly speaking, about $2 billion of these estimates are reprofiled. You will not see anything in the estimates document that actually indicates what's a reprofile and what is not. So I just thought I would indicate—and here I see that Mr. Wallace is rolling his eyes—that it's one of the changes we're contemplating making, but that's a longer term view.
Turning to the statutory items on slide 8, we've got two types. On some items we're just revising the estimate. I've got that list of three: fiscal equalization, public debt, and payments to Export Development Canada, which is the negative number because of the Chrysler Canada repayment. Then we've got a separate list for forecasts that you're seeing for the first time here, and we've spoken a bit about two of those statutory items in the earlier round.
I will highlight for you that AECL shows up in both statutory and voted items, the distinction being that the statutory item relates to the divestiture, that is the sale of part of AECL to the private sector. So there is a split between the voted and statutory items. The statutory item is for the divestiture.
In conclusion, these supplementary estimates detail the $6.6 billion that we've discussed, including the split between voted and statutory items the minister has already talked about it. And towards the back of the estimates document, you will actually see the appropriation act schedule—basically how these estimates turn into an appropriation act. That's there for your information, as well.
We do have 68 departments and agencies covered by these supplementary estimates (B) and 22 horizontal initiatives, which the secretary has already spoken about.
So I think I have honoured my five-to-ten-minute commitment.
