Environment committee  It's just not used. The department may not draw that funding in. It has the authority to be able to draw an existing amount in, up to an amount that was identified by Parliament. It would just not be drawn in, and what was actually used would be reported in the public accounts.

Environment committee  Thank you for your questions. I'll respond in English. You're not limited in the questions you can ask. You can ask questions pertaining to any items in the estimates.

Environment committee  Years ago we would just provide what we call the “voted amounts” in the main estimates. The government tabled the main estimates last week, and they total about $125 billion. We also provide information on statutory amounts so that Canadians and parliamentarians have a lens of th

Environment committee  The business of government is a year-long process. Given the fact that the main estimates, for instance, under the Standing Orders are required to be tabled by March 1 every year, if there's a budget after the main estimates are tabled, those initiatives in the budget will have b

Glenn Purves

Environment committee  Effectively, you're always being asked to approve an “up to” amount. The authority that's being asked of you is, do you approve up to $5 million in this vote? You're being asked to provide the authorities that are on that main sheet by vote.

Environment committee  There's a description. If you're short, then the public accounts will effectively show what the reporting has been. There will be a projection of the results for that fiscal year through the annual financial report as well as the public accounts. I think it's part II of the publ

Environment committee  I'm sorry, this is it right here. If you go online and look for the 2020 estimates, you see that it's effectively a blue book that provides that lens. It's old terminology. I apologize for that.

Government Operations committee  I can only comment that this is from the mandate letter for the president, so it's probably more appropriate for the president to respond to this. I think one thing that could be helpful would be for us to take that back and give a written response to you on behalf of the preside

Glenn Purves

Government Operations committee  I think inclusivity and employment equity are very important, but I'm an official here to answer questions on supplementary estimates, the estimates process and the funding that is in here.

Ultimately, the connecting Canadians program is about ensuring that citizens in rural, remote and northern parts of the country can enjoy access to the commerce, the employment opportunities and, of course, the distance education.
