Funding formula

Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
December 1999
  1. CIC has developed and begun the implementation of a new National Funding Formula for the allocation of settlement funding to each province;
  2. The consequences of the implementation has brought to light marked reductions in settlement funds for some provinces most notably Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan;
  3. The numbers of newcomers fluctuates each year, and the provision of service lasts for many years;
  4. These reductions will seriously damage the structural integrity and delivery capability of agencies in affected provinces, putting many below threshold operating levels;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That CIC be requested to re-evaluate the reductions targeted for various provinces, specifically Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan, taking into consideration the consequences of such reductions.
