 Key Highlights
 The Canadian DND’s budget was US$15.22 billion in 2008, which grew at a CAGR of 6.98% during the review period to reach US$19.94 billion in 2012. The strong growth demonstrated during these years was due to the CFDS, which details the country’s defense expenditure for a 20 year period, beginning in 2008. The strategy was formed to counteract the impact of the defense budget cuts in 1999, which significantly damaged Canada’s defense capability, leaving equipment obsolete and the armed forces inefficient. During the review period Canada spent US$95.39 billion on defense, which is expected to increase to US$109.15 billion over the forecast period. Canada’s defense budget is estimated at US$19.94 billion in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.65% during the forecast period to reach US$23.38 billion by 2017.
 The homeland security budget, represented by the budget of Public Safety Canada, stood at US$295.25 million in 2008 and reached to US$435.16 million in 2012, recording a CAGR of 10.18% during the review period. During the forecast period, despite the expected increase in force size as announced in the CFDS, revenue expenditure, estimated at US$408.99 million in 2013, is expected to increase at a CAGR of 8.01%, to reach US$556.56 million by 2017. This slowdown in growth is due to the increased allocation for capital expenditure to modernize the country’s defense forces during the forecast period. Cumulatively, the defense ministry is expected to spend US$2310.97 billion during the forecast period.
