The future-oriented condensed statement of operations presented in this subsection is intended to serve as a general overview of Statistics Canada operations. The forecast financial information on expenses and revenues is prepared on an accrual accounting basis to strengthen accountability and improve transparency and financial management.
Because the future-oriented statement of operations is prepared on an accrual accounting basis and the forecast and planned spending amounts presented in other sections of this report are prepared on an expenditure basis, amounts will differ.
A more detailed future-oriented statement of operations and associated notes, including a reconciliation of the net costs of operations to the requested authorities, can be found on Statistics Canada's website.
|Financial information||Estimated Results 2013/2014||Planned Results 2014/2015||Change|
|Net cost of operations||510,656||478,174||(32,482)|
The decrease in planned expenses for 2014/2015 is mainly explained by the fact that funding for the 2016 Census program is pending.
The difference between the Main Estimates amounts (Section 1) and these Future-oriented Condensed Statement of Operations planned results is mainly owing to the inclusion of accrual entries, such as services provided without charge to Statistics Canada by other organizations, and forecasts related to carry forward, planned refundables, salaries and amortization entries.
