Abstract

This chapter is an overview of the key aspects of defence funding in Canada, including the nature of the budgeting process. The author shows that the inability to spend allocated funds on capital spending has overlapped with a substantial increase in the availability of said funding since 2005. On current trends, the problem is likely to persist. While DND has made significant recent strides in making better use of the available funds, it is still having difficulty spending the procurement money.
