2020-21 Main Estimates
- Fisheries and Oceans’ 2020-21 Main Estimates total $3.462 billion dollars, which represents a $468.6 million dollar increase when compared to the 2019-20 Main Estimates.
- The increase is primarily the results of new funding to advance reconciliation, for the Canadian Coast Guard’s fleet recapitalization projects, and to strengthen environmental protections and address concerns by indigenous groups regarding the Trans Mountain Expansion Project.
- We will work to protect and promote our three oceans and our waterways, sustain and rebuild fisheries to ensure that they remain healthy for future generations, while providing important economic opportunities to Canadians and coastal communities.
Advancing reconciliation on Indigenous rights issues and fisheries
- The funding for reconciliation on Indigenous rights issues will be used to implement reconciliation agreements and implement treaties, as well as engaging with Indigenous communities and stakeholders on fisheries policies
The Canadian Coast Guard's fleet recapitalization projects
- Our government is providing the Canadian Coast Guard the tools they need to keep Canadians safe and keep our economy moving.
- In 2019, the Government announced the largest investments ever made to renew the Canadian Coast Guard fleet with twenty-four new large ships: sixteen Multi-Purpose Vessels, two Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships and six Program Icebreakers.
- Our significant commitment to renew the Coast Guard fleet will provide our crews with state of the art tools and preserve the world class marine safety regime that Canada enjoys.
Trans Mountain Expansion Project
- The funding related to the Trans Mountain Expansion Project will be used to implement the accommodation measures for the benefit of Indigenous communities and to support regulatory decision making.
- This funding will strengthen relationships with Indigenous communities and deliver on regulatory review responsibilities to support the implementation of this important project.
- Unlike the past two Main Estimates, the 2020-21 Main Estimates will not include Budget 2020 items.
- In 2018-19 and 2019-20 the Main Estimates were tabled (April 16, 2018 and April 11, 2019) well after the federal budgets, which allowed for the inclusion of Budget items.
- For the upcoming fiscal year, the Main Estimates will be tabled the week of February 24, 2020, with the Interim Supply bill receiving Royal Assent by March 31st. The remaining voted authorities will be received once Full Supply is granted in June.
