Key Highlights

The Canadian defense budget stood at US$XX.XX billion in 2010, recording a CAGR of XX.XX% during the review period. Estimated to total US$XX.XX billion in 2011, the defense budget is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX.XX% over the forecast period, to reach US$XX.XX billion by 2016. The reduced growth rate of the defense budget during the forecast period is due to budget cuts announced by the government to reduce its fiscal deficit. As a result, the defense budget is expected to decrease to XX.XX% of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2016, compared to the increase from XX.XX% to XX.XX% recorded over the review period. Canadian defense expenditure is mainly driven by the modernization of its armed forces outlined in the Canada First Defence Strategy (CFDS), the country's participation in various peacekeeping missions around the world, and the need to ensure the sovereignty of the Arctic region, which has become vulnerable to foreign intrusions due to climate change and speculation surrounding oil reserves in the area.

During the review period, an average of XX.XX% of the Canadian defense budget was allocated for capital expenditure, including the procurement of new equipment and upgrading existing fleets. The remaining budget was allocated for revenue expenditure, which includes the salaries of armed personnel, planning, administration and training expenditure. The allocation for capital expenditure is expected to increase to XX.XX% of the total defense budget by 2016.
