Status of Women Canada - Report


Section III: Supplementary Information

Financial Highlights

The future-oriented financial highlights presented within this section of the RPP are intended to serve as a general overview of SWC's financial operations. They are prepared on an accrual basis to strengthen accountability and improve transparency and financial management.

SWC is financed by the Government of Canada through Parliamentary authorities. Financial reporting of authorities provided to SWC does not parallel financial reporting according to generally accepted accounting principles since authorities are primarily based on cash flow requirements. Consequently, items forecast in the consolidated future-oriented statement of operations are not necessarily the same as those forecast through authorities from Parliament. A reconciliation of forecast authorities available (based on RPP forecast/planned spending amounts) and the forecast net cost of operations is set out in Note 5 of the organization's future-oriented financial statements.

This table summarizes Status of Women Canada's forecast operating expenses and revenues for fiscal years 2012–13 (just ended) and 2013–14 (upcoming). The dollar change between the two years for the various categories is also shown.

Tax Expenditures and Evaluations Report

The tax system can be used to achieve public policy objectives through the application of special measures such as low tax rates, exemptions, deductions, deferrals and credits. The Department of Finance publishes cost estimates and projections for these measures annually in the Tax Expenditures and Evaluations publication. The tax measures presented in the Tax Expenditures and Evaluations publication are the sole responsibility of the Minister of Finance8.
