Significant variances compared with previous financial year

This section provides a brief explanation of significant variances from the previous year’s annual expenditures for each category. 

Travel: CDIC Employees

Compared with the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, travel expenditures for CDIC employees decreased primarily due to decreased domestic travel, including travel between offices, together with decreased travel related to preparedness activities and engagement activities with key international stakeholders as compared to last year. 

Travel: Non-CDIC Employees

Compared with the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, travel expenditures for non-CDIC employees increased primarily due to an increase in core mandate activities being performed by external consultants. 

Hospitality

Compared with the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, CDIC hospitality expenditures were lower due to the hosting of two bienniel conferences in the prior year which did not occur this year. 

Conferences Fees

Compared with the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, the conference fees remained relatively consistent.
