The supplementary estimates update the first set of spending estimates, which were tabled before the March 21 federal budget.
The estimates show the government plans to spend an additional $20 million on advertising:
- $12 million to Natural Resources for "responsible resource development" advertising, the government's term for its work to develop and export Canadian resources.
- $5 million to Health Canada to advertise a campaign called "Protecting the health and safety of Canadians."
- $2.5 million to Human Resources and Skills Development to advertise "better jobs (skills initiatives)."
- $500,000 to Canadian Heritage for "history and heritage."
