3. Parliamentary Appropriations

FedDev Ontario receives its funding through annual Parliamentary authorities. Items recognized in the statement of operations and the statement of financial position in one year may be funded through Parliamentary authorities in prior, current or future years. Accordingly, FedDev Ontario has different net results of operations for the year on a government funding basis than on an accrual accounting basis. The differences are reconciled in the following tables:

8. Employee future benefits

  1. Pension benefits:

    FedDev Ontario's employees participate in the Public Service Pension Plan, which is sponsored and administered by the government. Pension benefits accrue up to a maximum period of 35 years at a rate of two percent per year of pensionable service times the average of the best five consecutive years of earnings. The benefits are integrated with Canada/Québec Pension Plans benefits and they are indexed to inflation.

    Both the employees and FedDev Ontario contribute to the cost of the plan. The 2010–11 expense amounts to $1,985,112 ($995,199 in 2009–10), which represents approximately 1.9 times (1.9 in 2009–10) the contributions by employees.

    FedDev Ontario's responsibility with regard to the plan is limited to its contributions. Actuarial surpluses or deficiencies are recognized in the financial statements of the Government of Canada, as the plan's sponsor.

  2. Severance benefits

    FedDev Ontario provides severance benefits to its employees based on eligibility, years of service and final salary. These severance benefits are not pre-funded. Benefits will be paid from future authorities. Information about the severance benefits, measured as at March 31, is as follows:
