Graph depicting the Commission's Departmental Spending Trends over the last three years in thousands of dollars. It provides the Main Estimates, Planned Spending, Total Authorities and Actual Spending for the years 2009-10 and 2010-11 and 2011-12.
The increase of $3.0 million in 2009-10 and $1.7 million in 2010-11 between Main Estimates and Total Authorities was mainly due to temporary funding including the following:
- $0.4 million in 2009-10 and $0.8 million in 2010-11, attributable to the carry-forward of the operating budget;
- $0.5 million in 2009-10 and $0.4 million in 2010-11, resulting from the reimbursement of eligible pay list expenditures for severance pay and parental benefits;
- $0.9 million in 2009-10 and $0.2 million in 2010-11, due to salary increases resulting from the collective bargaining agreements; and
- $0.7 million in 2009-10, related to funding received for the repeal of section 67 of the CHRA.
The increase of $1.8 million between 2009-10 and 2010-11 Main Estimates was mainly due to funding of $1 million for the repeal of section 67 of the CHRA and $0.8 million to cover salary increases generated by the signed collective bargaining agreements.
The increase between 2010-11 and 2011-12 Total Authorities and Actual Spending was mainly due to the payment of $1.1 million for severance payments resulting from the new severance pay provisions in some collective agreements.
