Assets have increased by $13.9 million compared to 2008-2009. Funds due from the Consolidated Revenue Fund increased by $24.4 million (33%) from the previous year. The primary reason for this increase is that accrued liabilities increased by $21.2 million. This is largely due to the CAF and the RInC program, which are part of CEAP.
Total liabilities at the end of 2009-2010 were $116.4 million, an increase of $24.4 million (27%) over the previous year’s total liabilities of $91.6 million. This increase relates to accrued liabilities for programs in CEAP as explained above. Accounts payable represent the largest portion of liabilities, at $99.9 million (86% of total liabilities).
The Agency’s total revenues for 2009-2010 amounted to $9 million, which remained fairly constant from the previous year’s revenue. Almost all of ACOA’s revenue was derived from repayable contributions from activity undertaken to support the Enterprise Development program activity. All the other levels of revenue were marginal for 2009-2010.
Total expenses for ACOA were $384.7 million in 2009-2010. Of this amount, $165.8 million (43%) was spent in Enterprise Development, while Community Development represented $161.8 million (42%). Policy, Advocacy and Coordination utilized $13.2 million (4%), and Internal Services represented $43.7 million (11%).

3 Calculation generated using data from Statistics Canada, National Economic Accounts-CANSIM Table 383-0010 and Table 379-0025.
4 In 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 the resources for the program activity Internal Services were distributed among the other three program activities. However, beginning with the 2009-2010 estimates cycle, Internal Services resources are displayed separately from the other three program activities. This reduces the ability to compare program activity spending between fiscal years.
5 There was no planned spending reported because the CEAP initiatives announcements (in Budget 2009) were made after publication of the 2009-2010 Report on Plans and Priorities.
6 Includes employee benefit costs (CAF $0.6 million, RInC $0.2 million, Canada Business Network $0.3 million).
7 The variance is largely attributable to the Atlantic Innovation Fund (AIF), where actual AIF spending was less than total authorities by $12.2 million. This was due to spending on projects not flowing as anticipated.
8 Business Special Surveys and Technology Statistics Division, Statistics Canada, March 2010.
10 Between 2000 and 2005, 93% of jobs created by firms in Atlantic Canada were attributed to small businesses. Calculation generated using data from Statistics Canada Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program.
11 This performance indicator is currently under review.
12 There was no planned spending reported because the CEAP initiatives announcements (in Budget 2009) were made after publication of the 2009-2010 Report on Plans and Priorities.
13 There was no planned spending reported because the CEAP initiatives announcements (in Budget 2009) were made after publication of the 2009-2010 Report on Plans and Priorities.

Evaluation of the Community Futures Program in Atlantic Canada, ACOA, June 2009.
19 While most of the CAF projects are allocated to the program activity Community Development, nine projects worth $6 million were captured in the Enterprise Development program activity (see Section 2.1.1) due to their commercial nature. Nevertheless, these results are included in the CAF section within Community Development.
20 There was no planned spending reported because the CEAP initiatives announcements (in Budget 2009) were made after publication of the 2009-2010 Report on Plans and Priorities.
