  4. At the Courts Administration Service, non respendable revenues consist primarily of fees levied for filing documents within the registries, for sales of photocopies of judgments and other revenues such as fines. CAS has no control over court fines, as they are imposed by judicial officers. Predicting these fines is entirely dependent on the cases being brought before the judiciary.
  5. Miscellaneous non-tax revenues consist primarily of other revenues, but are primarily derived from the Employment Insurance (EI) account. The total cost allocated by the Courts Administration Service (CAS) for handling EI cases is expended against the Employment Insurance account of Canada. As such, HRSDC, the department responsible for the EI account, shows an EI expense and CAS shows an equivalent, non-respendable revenue item. The purpose of this accounting exercise is to more accurately reflect the total cost of running the federal government's EI program and it is strictly internal to the government.
