From the Treasury Board of Canada:
The tool gives Canadians a quick picture of how taxpayer dollars are spent and allows Parliamentarians to better analyse government expenditures.
The database allows users to search for spending information in three categories: by Authorities and Expenditures, which compares the amount of funding that was authorized to what was actually spent, by Standard Object, which details itemized government spending, and by Program. By clicking on any value presented in the database, users can obtain government-wide totals and make comparisons of the data.
Expenditure data is currently available for all organizations that received voted appropriations during the 2009-10 to 2011-12 period. Over the next two years, the Government will work on expanding the information in the database and enhancing its functionality.
