Note 1: The CRTC retains respendable revenue to fund its operating budget (i.e. vote-netted revenue).

Note 2: Non-respendable revenue for Part I broadcasting licence fees and CRTC telecommunications fees recover the costs incurred by other federal government departments for services (excluding Industry Canada spectrum management) rendered without charge to the CRTC as well as the statutory costs of employee benefit plans. Part II broadcasting fees are also considered to be non-respendable revenue.

Note 3: The CRTC collected $674,000 in outstanding Part II licence fees pertaining to the 2005 and 2006 return years. The Commission did not assess or collect any revenues for Part II licence fees for 2007–2008 as a result of the Federal Court decision in effect at that time.

Note 4: Other revenue is comprised of adjustment to prior years’ revenues and payables, deferred revenues and miscellaneous revenue such as interest on outstanding fees.

Note 5: All revenues are credited to the Consolidated Revenue Fund.
