The Fiscal Reference Tables provide annual data on the financial position of the federal, provincial-territorial and local governments. The data are presented on both a Public Accounts basis—corresponding to the accounting conventions used to report financial information to the respective legislatures—as well as on a National Accounts basis—as prepared by Statistics Canada and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

The Fiscal Reference Tables for the Federal Government—Public Accounts have been revised to reflect the reclassification of certain figures to conform to the current year’s presentation.

The Fiscal Reference Tables for Provincial Governments—Public Accounts have been revised to reflect the following changes:

  • Saskatchewan’s public finances are now reported on a consolidated financial statement basis.
  • Newfoundland and Labrador’s net income from government business enterprises has been combined with own-source revenues to provide a more comparable basis with other provinces.

The Fiscal Reference Tables—National Accounts have been revised to reflect the following change:

  • Table 48 now includes liabilities and assets of Aboriginal governments.
