2016 Federal Budget

2016 Federal Budget March 22, 2016

Chapter 6 > Chart 6.2 Funding for National Defence Large-Scale Capital Projects

Renewing Major Equipment for the Canadian Armed Forces Budget 2016 proposes to reallocate funding of $3.716 billion for large-scale capital projects from the 2015–16 to 2020–21 period to future years.

Chart 6.2 in the 2016 federal budget shows a decrease in National Defence capital project funding starting in 2016 (with the current budget). According to that same chart, current funding levels will remain lower than originally planned until fiscal year 2020-21, at which point funding is planned to go above its originally planned level for the next 25 years (projections to fiscal year 2044-45).
