Minister Clement Tables 2012-13 Supplementary Estimates (A)

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 17, 2012) - The Honourable Tony Clement, President of the Treasury Board and Minister responsible for FedNor, today tabled the 2012-13 Supplementary Estimates (A) in the House of Commons.

"These Supplementary Estimates reflect the Government's plan for jobs, growth and long-term prosperity," said Minister Clement. "An important part of our plan is keeping taxes and debt low while returning to a balanced budget."

The 2012-13 Supplementary Estimates (A) document supports the request for Parliament's approval of $2.1 billion in voted expenditures in 44 organizations. It includes expenditures that were planned for in Economic Action Plan 2012 but not included in the 2012-13 Main Estimates, which were tabled before the Budget.

The Supplementary Estimates and related documents are posted on the Treasury Board of Canada website.
