On February 23, 2016, the Government of Canada has tabled the 2016-17 Main Estimates. They provide information in planned budgetary expenditures for the 2016-17 fiscal year for each department and agency.
As indicated in the latest Main Estimates, beginning in 2016–17, Library and Archives Canada’s budget will show a significant increase in expenditures. This increase is solely due to a government decision to transfer permanent funds from Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) to LAC so as to consolidate and transfer administration of the special-purpose storage facilities, while supporting our long-term infrastructure strategy.
Therefore, as of 2016–17, LAC will be responsible for costs associated with the management and maintenance of its special-purpose storage facilities that were previously under the responsibility of PSPC.
