(a) At the Courts Administration Service (CAS), non-respendable revenues consist primarily of fees levied for filing documents within the registries and for sales of photocopies of judgments and other revenues such as fines imposed by the Courts (i.e. contempt of Court, criminal conviction, etc.).
(b) CAS has no control over court fines, as they are imposed by judicial officers. Predicting these fines is entirely dependent on the case being brought before the judiciary.
(c) Other non-tax revenue consists of refunds of prior year expenditures and other minor non-respendable revenues. However, the primarily component of “Other Non-Tax Revenue” is derived from the Employment Insurance (EI) Account of Canada ($1.6M in 2011–12). At the end of each fiscal year, CAS determines the cost associated with the administration of Employment Insurance cases. The total cost allocated by CAS for handling EI cases is expended against Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), the department responsible for the EI account. As such, HRSDC shows an EI expense and CAS shows an equivalent, non-respendable revenue item. The purpose of this accounting exercise is to more accurately reflect the total cost of running the federal government's EI program and it is strictly internal to the government.
(d) Numbers in columns may not add up due to rounding.
