At the outset of 2014-15, Fisheries and Oceans Canada's planned spending was $1,605.3 million. Through the Main Estimates and Supplementary Estimates, the Department was allocated total authorities of $1,924.0 million, whereas the actual expenditures were $1,737.0 million, resulting in a variance of $187.1 million.

The difference of $187.1 million between total authorities and actual spending is mainly the result of timeline changes in the completion of projects, which caused funding to be carried forward to the next fiscal year.

The $318.7 million increase from planned spending to total authorities is mainly due to incremental funding for the renewal of the Pacific and Atlantic Integrated Commercial Fisheries Initiatives, investments in the Canadian Coast Guard's fleet renewal under the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy, the procurement of light-lift helicopters and funding for the Small Craft Harbours program for repair and maintenance across Canada.

New funding also included the extension of the Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnerships Program, the implementation of the National Conservation Plan as well as funding for defining the outer limits of Canada's Continental Shelf in the Arctic Ocean.
