    Description:

    The responsibility for providing transportation infrastructure is shared between federal, provincial and municipal levels of government. Over the last decade, the federal government adopted policies of divestiture and reduced subsidies to transportation infrastructure investment and operations. These policies helped curb the growing public debt, but it would appear that transportation bore a disproportionate share of cutbacks. Federal transportation expenditures as a percentage of total federal expenditures fell from 2.8% in 1991/92 to 1.3% in 2001/02.

    The impacts of fiscal restraint are uneven. Gross federal spending on all modes, and total revenues from both tax and non-tax sources were analysed and reported in 2000 constant dollars. Real federal transportation spending decreased 57.3% from $5,392 million in 1991/92 to $2,302 million in 2001/02. Total revenues from transport kept pace with, or exceeded inflation. As a result, the financial impact on the federal treasury went from an annual deficit of $547 million in support of transport, to a surplus of $2.4 billion taken out of the transportation sector.

    This paper highlights the shifting federal support for transportation in the 1990's. As the burden for providing infrastructure has fallen heavier on transport users and other levels of government, the growing federal surplus of taxes and fees from transportation over expenditures in this sector is attracting more attention.
