The Agency's statistical program is funded from two sources: direct parliamentary appropriations and cost-recovery activities. In recent years, 'respendable' cost-recovery revenues have generally contributed more than $100 million annually to the Agency's total resources. A large portion of these respendable revenues is from federal departments to fund specific statistical projects.

Included in total planned full-time equivalents (FTEs) are approximately 300 public-servant FTEs, based across Canada, outside the National Capital Region. Excluded are approximately 1,800 interviewers outside the National Capital Region. These interviewers are part-time workers, whose assigned workweeks are affected by the volume of collection work available: they are hired under the Statistics Act, by the authority of the Minister of Industry. Interviewers are covered by two separate collective agreements, and are employed through Statistical Survey Operations. Many of Statistics Canada's main outputs rely heavily on data collection and analysis, as well as on the administration of these activities, which takes place in the regions.

The difference between actual and planned spending for 2012/2013 is mainly attributable to the payout for the severance pay for the collective agreements, employee benefit plan expenditures and workforce adjustment costs.

The difference between actual and planned human resources (FTEs) for 2012/2013 is mainly due to workforce adjustment and planning assumptions and staff complement.

The decrease in actual spending from 2011/2012 to 2012/2013 is the result of the reduction in reference levels for the 2011 Census programs as they wind down and the impact of Budget 2012. These reductions are partially offset by severance liquidation related to the signing of collective agreements and the payment of workforce adjustment costs.
