The September 2005 Fiscal Reference Tables for the Federal Government-Public Accounts have been restated to present revenues and expenses on a gross basis and to reflect the estimated impact of consolidating foundations, as announced in Budget 2006. These adjustments are explained in further detail in Annex 2 of The Budget Plan 2006 at The 2006 Fiscal Reference Tables, updated to include the financial results for the Government of Canada's fiscal year ended March 31, 2006, will be published in the fall.

The Fiscal Reference Tables provide annual data on the financial position of the federal and provincial 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.
