Too many government departments

- January 4th, 2012

You’ve heard of the latest story about government misspending, high-flying bureaucrats taking trips hither and yon to learn how to be better bureaucrats.

It is an outrage and should be cut but really to tame government spending we need to do more in this country and I’d say getting rid of some departments, agencies or crown corporations should be under consideration.

    Does anyone know where this list might be kept with a Budget column beside the name? Would be informative to know much the Canada Emission Reduction Incentives Agency and other essential agencies are stealing from us.

    Does anyone know if there is a Canadian version of something like this US website?
    http://www.downsizinggovernment.org/balanced-budget-plan

  2. Denny Lama says:

    It seems bureaucracy grows and grows no matter whether Liberals or Conservatives are in Gov’t. The only difference is Liberals are not so hypocritical.
    Conservatives talk a good game but rarely deliver. Was hoping this time it would be different but have seen little from this Gov’t they will be any different. In fact they seem to be going in the opposite direction and ready to expand Gov’t. At least Sun TV are calling them on it.

  3. Brian Lilley says:

    Okay Denny but what would you cut? What can we do without?
    I’ll be posting my thoughts in the next day or two.

  4. Laurie Eberhardt says:

    Could the Museums be private enterprises along with the CBC without losing their viability? I mean I have never been to Ottawa but is the tourism in the major museums enough to keep them viable? And as far as the CBC is concerned, let them earn their way just like the other networks, sink or swim. And what is the Assisted Human Reproduction Agency of Canada? That one sounds creepy like something from a sci-fi novel gone bad!

  5. Arron Jeavons says:

    In Reagan’s famous speech he said “Government will never voluntarily shrink itself. A govt bureau is the closest thing to eternal life” Here we are today dealing with that issue in 2012. How will this happen?

    I would cut for sure 100%
    # Canadian Human Rights Commission
    # Canadian Human Rights Tribunal

    Other then that I think if you do not have any idea what the dept does from a layman’s view it should be defunded at least 10%.

  6. joe says:

    Here’s one cut i would make,Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages,.. Canadians could save billions of dollars and hardly effect anyone. End Official Bilingualism.

  7. Chris says:

    Privatizing the CBC is a no-brainer, as is Canada Post, though it must be accompanied with an elimination of the restriction on competition.

  8. Alain says:

    I went through the list and found a total of 47 that could and should be cut. I had thought I would enumerate them but seeing the total number, it would take too much space and time. I based my findings on the premise that these were provincial jurisdictions, would be better privatised or contracted out and finally totally unnecessary. I admit that while I knew there would be fat to cut I never realised just how much fat there is.

  9. I would say most of the departments do have a purpose and are useful for something. The question comes in the overlap between work purposes and whether each department is getting a good value for the number of employees under their employ.

  10. mitchel44 says:

    If you are looking for savings, try clicking on the proactive disclosure link at the bottom left of every gov.ca page.

    You can follow that to the Grants and Contributions over $25K listing by quarter for each year since 2005. Here is Environment Canada’s, http://www.ec.gc.ca/gc-sc/Index.cfm?lang=en&state=reports

    Some of the things they spent money on in the 2nd Quarter of the current fiscal year are:

    ALBERTA CONSERVATION ASSOC. Sherwood Park, AB, CA 2010-09-07 $31,345.00
    ALBERTA CONSERVATION ASSOC. Lethbridge, AB, CA 2011-09-23 $594,377.00

    even though I happen to like ducks, it’s supposed to be a charity,

    DUCKS UNLIMITED CANADA Regina, SK, CA 2010-08-16 $45,000.00
    DUCKS UNLIMITED CANADA Amherst, NS, CA 2010-09-09 $33,000.00

    DUCKS UNLIMITED CANADA Surrey, BC, CA 2011-09-28 $60,000.00

    how about native bands,

    ASSEMBLEE DES PREMIERES NATIONS DU QUEBEC ET DU LABRADOR Wendake, QC, CA 2011-08-08 $38,589.00
    CENTRE FOR INDIGENOUS ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES Winnipeg, MB, CA 2010-08-10 $60,000.00

    how about the Nature Conservancy folks, another charity,

    NATURE CONSERVANCY CANADA – SASKATCHEWAN Regina, SK, CA 2011-08-26 $40,000.00
    NATURE CONSERVANCY OF CANADA Fredericton, NB, CA 2010-08-31 $26,000.00

    CONSERVATION DE LA NATURE MONTREAL, QC, CA 2010-09-21 $99,163.00

    That’s just a few from Environment Canada, go look at the International Development folks for more, CARE Canada, World Vision Canada, Oxfam, UNICEF, etc… Or try Health Canada for a shocker on funding amounts.

    I don’t give to charity any more, the government is making those decisions for me.

    Get them to shut the tap on the free money give away from every government department, and I’m willing to bet the cost of government drops…

  11. Denny Lama says:

    Brian, there are just so many I didn’t think there would be room in my previous message.
    Ok here goes: first, agree with above posts re: Commissioner of Official Languages/End Bilingualism.
    Also as above: Human Rights Comm/Tribunal.

    Then there is Indian $ Norther Affairs Dept. They have been around for years and First Nations people are mo better as latest developments have shown.
    And why then is there another Dept for First Nation Statistical Inst.

    Any and all things to do with the Senate

    Social Science & Humanities Research Council ?????

    Canadian Race Relations Foundation ??

    This could gonon & on but let me throw one more out there. Canadian Dairy Commission. Now that the Gov’t has done away with the Wheat Board the Dairy Monopoly should be next.

    Hope that was a good start.

    Actually this Gov’t should start their cuts of the PS from the top down if they wish to make real savings. Cutting at the bottom only cuts Service to the public and saves little. Get rid of the overpaid paper pushers.

    Keep up the good work. Looking at you now on Roundtable.

  12. Marc Opie says:

    If you want to run the government more like as business, as conservatives like to say, find a corporation of roughly the same size (or use a scaling factor, or a collection of corporations if you can’t find one), and compare the department count. I’m betting they’re comprable.

  13. Tracy says:

    I think another department should be formed to do a little house cleaning in the area of government institutions! No kidding; this department would be responsible for downsizing the number of departments via appropriate pairing, amalgamation or eliminating some departments altogether. Hey, isn’t that what the government is currently expected to do?!

  14. Andrew says:

    Indian Oil and Gas Canada? What is this? How is “Indian oil and gas” difefrent that just oil and gas to mandate the existence of Special Operating Agency?

  15. Ivana says:

    Interparliamentary associations is another place our elected officials can perhaps look to make some cuts. The website below displays all the groups and associations that Canada is a participant in, a lot of these groups have several member-countries, and many countries overlap in several associations. But, are we really getting a bang for our buck? The costs for these trips don’t even come out of the parliamentarian’s expense budget but rather they are “funded from a $4.4 million envelope” by the House of Commons and Senate. What comes out of these trips and is it worth $4.4 million of taxpayer’s money?

    Check it out for yourself: http://www.parl.gc.ca/iia/Associations.aspx?Language=E&DCId=4&DTId=7&P=list

    The Department of Finance publishes the Budget online. You can get it in pdf at the bottom of the page here: http://www.budget.gc.ca/2011/home-accueil-eng.html

    Starting at page 66 is Annex 1 Updates to Tables which lists some of the spending by Department etc. That’s not what most of us are looking for. Following the ‘Proactive DIsclosure’ link on Finance’ home page leads to: http://www.fin.gc.ca/disclose-divulgation/grant-eng.asp which points to the Receiver General and the Public Accounts which, here:

    http://www.tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca/recgen/txt/72-eng.html

    has a monster pdf listing the ‘transfer payments’ paid out. “Transfer payments are transfers of money, goods, services or assets made from an appropriation to individuals, organizations or other levels of government, without the federal government directly receiving goods or services in return”. In other words: gifts.
    The pdf is 282 pages, broken down by Department etc.
    There is no absolute total given, but it is a LOT of money, stolen from taxpayers on threat of punishment and given to others.

    Agriculture starts off the listing at $1,828,747,323 or $1.8 BILLION. (Spoiler alert: Agri is NOT the champion.)

    Dufflet Pastries got $148,325 but NAME WITHHELD grabbed $181,271!!! Doncha just luv the gubmint!
    BTW, ‘Name withheld’ is possibly the only non-corporate bloodsucker on that portion of the list.
    On the next page it gets better! Yes, better! (or .. worse depending….)
    Basically all the big banks got something. Kid you not. BMO Financial Group got $21,647,931.
    BNX, CIBC, National Bank, RBC are all listed.
    Excuse me, I have to clean my teeth and wash my hands.

    So *there* is a damn good place to start. Just WTF are banks doing receiving gifts from Agriculture Canada? And it’s not in farm country: Toronto,Halifax and Montreal..

    It is an AMAZING list: Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency: $313,824,963. In round figures that is $10 for EVERY CANADIAN RESIDENT.

    Canadian Heritage a BILLION. $30 per resident. And this is just the money they GIVE AWAY. Three times the amount given out by Justice.

    Pick a section and pound on your MP.

    Iiic there are some 300 pages of groups/corporations/institutions which receive more than $100,000 in grants

  18. simon says:

    I don’t doubt that there are items that can be cut, but don’t see how it’s possible to know what should to cut from a simple list. All of these departments were created for a reason, a background of what they do and why they do it would make it a more valuable exercise.

  19. Marc Opie says:

    Simon

    If you’re goal is to move the country more and more away from the government, accountable to the people, to non accountable corporations, it doesn’t matter. It’s best to use a simple list.

  20. Devin Watson says:

    Consulting and Audit Canada – Anything to do with the Auditor General or is this useless?

    Measurement Canada – Haven’t we measured it by now? ;)

    Canadian Forces Non-Public Funds – A government bureaucracy to inefficiently blow private money meant for the troops?

    Statistical Survey Operations – I thought we had a Stats Canada for this?

    Canada Industrial Relations Board – Sounds like a bunch of bureaucrats that will get lobbied to death and stop making smart decisions, while still costing us money

    Canadian Grain Commission – Sounds like the kind of thing that should be convened only when necessary.

    Canadian Human Rights Commission and Canadian Human Rights Tribunal – Its telling that there are two agencies devoted to the same thing with scarcely any difference in name

    Canadian Intellectual Property Office + Copyright Board – Duplicates?

    Economic Development Agency of Canada
    for the Regions of Quebec +
    Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario – both strike me as non-entities. I never hear about them, they can’t be doing that much “developement”

    Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission Secretariat – Where were they with Attawapiskat and who knows how many other reserve schools?

    Public Health Agency of Canada – Part of the bloated middle management that is infecting our health care system?

    Registry of the Competition Tribunal – Where were these jokers for ten years while Roger’s and Bell overcharged us and kept competition out of the market??

    Assisted Human Reproduction Agency of Canada – Useless?

    Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council – Duplicates of what we should be getting out of University researchers?

    Senate Ethics Officer – ummmm

    Canada Employment Insurance Financing Board – don’t we finance EI out of taxes taken from our cheques? Are we financing their meetings and fine catering?

    Cdn Commercial Corporation – Useless?

    Corporation for the Mitigation of Mackenzie Gas Project Impacts – How about they mitigate that stuff and wrap the job up?

    Defence Construction (1951) Ltd. – Useless/duplicate?

    First Nations Statistical Institute – expensive extra-department instead of something within Stats Can?

    Canada Pension Plan Investment Board – Are these the folks that have lead to an underfunded CPP while viewing everything through rose-coloured glasses?

    Canadian Broadcasting Corp – Get em Brian! ;P

    Canadian Race Relations Foundation – I think we get along very well without Uncle Government bungling around

    Public Sector Pension Investment Board – I’m confused

  21. Doug Lorenzen says:

    I would cut all satellite fire arms offices, as this work can be carried out by a part time clerk in an RCMP office.
    Removing the office in Whitehorse alone, would save at least two hundred thousand a year. (Whitehorse is a satellite of BC).

    Public works and supply services Canada, have on staff at least one hundred engineers, who from years of experience are mostly useless, and hire privat firms to do their work.

    Look closely at the budget for Health Canada, actually the majority of tax payer money is spent by this department,
