Management Response and Action Plan
Recommendation Management Response Planned Action Lead Target Date
1. The Department of Finance should seek a decision from the responsible Minister on a continuation of federal funding to the HC after March 31, 2016 through a multi-year contribution agreement that provides assistance in covering operational costs. We agree with this recommendation. A decision will be sought from the responsible Minister on the renewal of the program within the next year. Director, Sectoral Policy Analysis  Division of the Economic Development and Corporate Finance Branch December 2015
2. In the context of any renewed funding, the Department of Finance should formally establish and communicate to HC a clear long-term funding strategy, including objectives and targets with regard to HC’s reliance on HCFP as a source of operational funding. These elements should be incorporated into any subsequent contribution agreement and program renewal documents.  We agree to seek the Minister’s direction on this recommendation in the context of our action on the first recommendation. A decision will be sought from the responsible Minister on the renewal of the program within the next year. Director, Sectoral Policy Analysis  Division of the Economic Development and Corporate Finance Branch December 2015
