Canada NewsWire

OTTAWA, Feb. 18, 2020 /CNW/ - The Government continues investing in people and infrastructure across the country to help ensure Canada's future success.

Today, the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, President of the Treasury Board of Canada tabled the Supplementary Estimates (B), 2019–20 in the House of Commons.

These Supplementary Estimates account for $3.8 billion in budgetary spending plans across 61 federal organizations. Parliamentarians will have the opportunity to vote on these allocations which seek to provide important services to Indigenous communities, make further progress on climate change and support Canada's armed forces.

The Estimates include $919.0 million in funding to forgive loans to First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities related to comprehensive land claim negotiation, $588.3 million to improve access to community child welfare services, and $232.0 million to continue implementing Jordan's Principle, among other targeted measures. These Estimates also propose the reallocation of funds to increase the Veterans Emergency Fund and support the well-being of Veterans and their families.

Spending plans include continued support for Canada's Climate Action Incentive Fund to help Canadian businesses, municipalities, universities and hospitals implement carbon reduction and energy efficiency projects. They also include investments in the protection of Canada's national interests as part of the Strong, Secure, Engaged defence policy with funding for military equipment, infrastructure and technology, and assistance to NATO and UN peacekeeping operations.

These are the last Supplementary Estimates planned for fiscal year 2019–20, which reflect government priorities and Budget 2019 measures.
