A-2014-00093 This is a follow-up to a previous request (A-20 14-00066/MI). I need a breakdown of the administrative expenses for the AgriStability and AgriInvest programs for years 2009–2010, 2010–2011, 2011–2012 and 2012–2013. The goal is to understand why AgriStability's expenses vary from $30.8 million in 2009–2010 to $12.8 million in 2012–2013 (AAFC costs are significantly higher than those of provincial organizations). I also want to know what they include so they can be compared with organizations managing AgriStability and AgriInvest. Number of AgriStability participants (i.e. those who paid their contributions and submitted their financial data before the deadline [December 31, 2013, for participation year 2012]). I need the data from all the provinces where the program was delivered by AAFC in participation years 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009. Number of AgriInvest participants (i.e. those who contributed, those who could not contribute because their ANS was below $5,000 and those who could contribute but chose not to). I need the data from all the provinces where the program was delivered by AAFC in participation years 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009. Disclosed in part 5
