[7] Notes on Full Time Equivalents:

  • Unless otherwise indicated, Military FTEs (Full Time Equivalents) represent Vote 1 and Vote 5 Regular Forces and include Class "C" Primary Reserve Forces.
  • Military FTEs are derived from a representative financial formula, as there is not a consistent 1:1 relationship between FTEs and program activities.
  • Civilian workforce is planned through a Salary Wage Envelope (SWE).
  • Please note that the military and civilian FTE numbers in this DPR are not consistent 1:1 with the FTE numbers used for the allocation of the financial resources approved for the 2009-10 Annual Reference Level Update (ARLU).
  • Civilian workforce planned FTEs include forecasted growth projections and are subject to final budgetary approval.
  • Civilian FTEs include National Defence and Defence portfolio organizations.
  • Reprioritization of operational and/or management initiatives within the fiscal year may result in the reallocation of personnel to other program activities, as required.
  • Due to the methodology used to derive the HR attribution across the PAA, the overall totals for the HR financial data will not be an exact match with the financial tables. Where discrepancies occur, the financial tables take precedence.

[8] The Military Training and Cooperation Program (MTCP) was previously designated the Military Training and Assistance Program (MTAP). The new designation, approved by the Treasury Board Secretariat on October 22, 2009, more accurately reflects the policy objective of developing reciprocal defence relationships with partners through the principle of cooperation.

[20] Commencing in the 2009-10 Estimates cycle, the resources for Program Activity: Internal Service is displayed separately from other program activities; they are no longer distributed among the remaining program activities, as was the case in previous Main Estimates. This has affected the comparability of spending and FTE information by Program Activity between fiscal years.
