1 CHT/CST include transition protection payments for 2007–08. CHT includes protection payments to Newfoundland and Labrador in 2014-15.
2 Includes a one-time adjustment of $54 million in 2006-07, and amounts reflect the fact that Newfoundland and Labrador elected in 2010-11 to enter into the 2007 Equalization formula. Newfoundland and Labrador no longer qualifies for Equalization as from 2008-09 due to the strength of its economy relative to the other provinces.
3 Offshore Offset Payments include cash amounts from the 1985 Accord. The 2005 Arrangement included an upfront payment of $2 billion in 2004-05; amounts presented here are notional allocations, not including the $1,153 million booked by Newfoundland and Labrador in 2008-09 that represents the unused portion of the upfront payment. The $536 million paid in 2011-12 under the 2005 Arrangement represents a transitional payment as Newfoundland and Labrador no longer qualifies for Equalization or Offshore Offset Payments beyond that year. Offshore Offset Payments are not included for the purpose of calculating Total Transfer Protection.
4 Total Transfer Protection (TTP) was provided in 2010–11 to ensure that Newfoundland and Labrador's total major transfers in one of these years are no lower than in the prior year. For the purpose of calculating TTP, total major transfers comprise Equalization, CHT, CST and prior year TTP.
