Section 6 - Transfer Payments

Public Accounts of Canada 2015 Volume III - Top of the page Navigation

Please note: this page is wider than normal.

The following statement presents the total amount spent as transfer payments in the current fiscal year by department and agency under each ministry. A transfer payment is a grant, contribution or other payment made by the Government for which no goods or services are received. Amounts reported include both internal and external expenditures. Whereas external expenditures result from transactions between the Government and outside parties, internal expenditures result from transactions involving organizations that are part of the Government of Canada as a reporting entity.

The Transfer Payments supplementary information contains the following detailed information:

  • the total amount spent in the current fiscal year;
  • the total amount paid for each class of recipients;
  • a detailed listing for each class of recipients of the aggregate of all payments (i.e. cash payments and accrued charges) to a recipient that totals $100,000 or over. Details include the name and location of the recipient together with the total amount paid; and,
  • the total amount and the total number of recipients, for each class of recipients, of all payments to a recipient aggregating to less than $100,000.
