Notes:

  1. Cost estimates to complete the project have increased.  Revised expenditure authority will be sought from Treasury Board in 2008. The table reflects the new cost estimates.
  2. This project is being restructured along program lines, with smaller individual projects within the overall program.
  3. Project has been cancelled.  Jetty NJ will now be funded as part of the Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship project and Jetty NK will not be rebuilt.
  4. Project has been put on hold.
  5. Total project cost was previously estimated at $63,030K.  Cost estimates have been revised down from that in RPP 2007-2008 and are now below the reporting threshold.
  6. All figures include capital costs only and are exclusive of GST/HST.
  7. Past years expenditures are as of March 31, 2007.
