(1) For the years 1945-50 inclusive the figures represent the metal content of concentrates produced from nickel-copper ores. For earlier years figures refer to 
refined metals recovered and the contents of concentrates sold. 

(2) Excluding clay products and other structural materials. 

(3) Includes Alberta production valued at the well head; value figures for Alberta prior to 1949 include some gas at a higher value than at the well head. Ontario 
production for 1950 and 51 valued at wholesale price rather than retail as in previous years.

Beginning in the fiscal year ending Mar. 31, 1951, "other war and de- 
mobilization expenditure" is included in ordinary expenditure (largely in 
Dept. of Agriculture). 

Revenue item "Return on Investments" could be considered an offset to this.

in Sept. 1949. 

Includes 16.1 paid to Alta. and Sask. re natural resources agreements. 
Includes 9.4 paid to Alberta re debt refunding plan.

old age assistance payments. 

(9) Includes capital expenditure. 

(10) 4.5 of departmental total of 105.8 is shown under "other government- 
owned enterprises". 

(11) Provision for reserves and write-offs of assets has been eliminated from 
"Financial Requirements", as the corresponding increases in the liability 
items and decreases in the asset items have not been shown. "Write-offs 
of non-active assets per .contra" have been deducted from both "Financial

(S)

(7) 



Requirements" and "Sources of Financing". 

(12) Total Old Age Security payments consist of these expenditures plus 
those from the Old Age Security Fund deficit shown above.

Canadian dollar on Oct. 1, 1950.

$4.03 until Sept. 1949, at $3.08 until Sept. 1950, at $2.94 at Mar. 31, 1951, 
and at $2.80 at Mar. 31, 1952. U.S. dollar debt and balances are valued 
at $1.00 until Sept. 1949, at $1.10 until Sept. 1950, at $1.05 at Mar. 31, 
1951, and at $1.00 at Mar. 31. 1952. 

■*• In arriving at his estimated "Total Budgeting Expenditure" of 4,270, the 
Minister of Finance made allowance for expenditure under the omitted 
items marked with a -k and for grants to universities and the subsidy on 
the movement of feed grains. He also provided for some lapsing of 
appropriations under certain of the items shown. The resulting net ex- 
penditure included in the total of 4,270, but not shown in the detailed 
figures, was 19.2. (See also footnote 7.)

Excludes firewood. Includes Newfoundland commencing in 19S0. (S) 

Output of central electric stations generated by water, less exports, plus 
power generated and used by the manufacturing and mining industries. 
Primary power calculated at the constant 1926 rate of 1.95 lbs. of coal 
per kilowatt hour plus secondary power sold by central electric stations 
calculated at its actual b.t.u. equivalent of 3.415 b.t.u. per kilowatt hour. 
Primary power is calculated at the coal equivalent, based on the average (6) 
efficiency of central electric stations in the United States as reported by 
the Edison Electric Institute. Because of increased efficiency in the 
utilization of coal this average decreased from the equivalent of 1.95 lbs. (7) 
of coal per kilowatt hour in 1926 to 1.24 lbs. in 1951. Secondary power 
sold by central electric stations is calculated at its actual b.t.u. per kilo- 
watt hour. 

Includes anthracite coal, bituminous coal, sub-bituminous coal, lignite (8) 
coal and imported coke. The unit heat values employed are: anthracite, 
26,400.000 b.t.u. per ton: bituminous, 26,200,000 b.t.u. per ton: sub-bitu- (9) 
minous and lignite, 20,000,000 b.t.u. per ton: coke, 20,000,000 b.t.u. per ton. * 



For the years 1941 to 1949 inclusive, sum of sales by retail dealers, con- 
sumption by industry, railways and by coke and gas plants plus the 
amount used by the colleries and supplied to employees. For earlier years, 
the sum of sales by Canadian coal mines, colliery consumption, coal sup- 
plied to employees and coal used in making coke, etc., less tonnage bunk- 
ered and exported. 

For years 1941 to 1949 inclusive, sum of sales by retail dealers, consumption 
by industry and by railways: for earlier years imports for consumption 
excluding foreign coal re-exported and bunkered. 

The coal equivalent of the sum of gasoline, fuel and gas oils and kerosene 
estimated by the D.B.S. and converted to b.t.u.'s on the basis of 1 ton of 
coal equals 26,000,000 b.t.u., plus petroleum coke consumed as fuel 
calculated at the rate of 30,000,000 b.t.u. per ton. 

Sales and consumption by producers. The unit heat value employed is 
1,075 b.t.u. per cubic foot. 

Including water power calculated at the yearly average coal equivalent.

1,007 respectively. 



* Less than ten thousand. 

(4) Persons with definite instructions to return to work within 30 days of

(1) Includes items v/hich provinces may place in capital account, such as 
rural hydro bonus, grants for construction of schools, municipal roads, 
hospitals and other institutions not provincially owned, and direct relief

have been deducted from the corresponding expenditure. See footnotes 
(1) and (7) page 169. 

(2) Includes Old Age Assistance payments (1951-52). Excludes pensions for

(3) Includes expenditures for health care and payments to hospitals under the 
Hospital Services Plans in Saskatchewan (1947-52) and British Columbia

has been charged to that function. 

(5) Includes an amount for unpaid interest in Alberta for the years 1937-1950

years 1946-1950 include the payments on the interest adjustments deferred 
in accordance with the plan. 

(6) Includes sinking fund earnings. Also interest revenue from Common School 
and School Lands Funds. See footnote (7) page 169.

* The tabulation includes all those companies with 1941 assets over S200.000 
for which consistent reports were available from 1935-1951. The accounts 
of certain companies which were available in some or all of these years were 
not comparable throughout the period and had to be excluded. Since many 
of the companies report on a consolidated basis, the number of individual 
companies included in the sample is actually a good deal larger than in- 
dicated. The material is, of course, subject to all the limitations and 
qualifications which apply to the ba9ic accounting statements. 

t Figures are available on request for the years 1936-40 inclusive. 

(1) For purposes of comparability, any special capital charges made against 
income account in company reports have been added back as well as 
"contingent" and "general" reserves. Special inventory reserves, whether 
shown by the company in operating expenses or as an adjustment to earned 
surplus, have been deducted in arriving at Net Operating Profit. For the 
Total 603 Companies the special inventory reserves amounted to 10.9, 
5.8, 2.9, 4.2,-1.8,2.5, 14.2, 1.7, 1.3, 6.3 and -5.2, in the years 1941-51 re- 
spectively. 

(2) Includes deferred development and depletion provision where charged by 
the company. For the Total 603 Companies these amounted to 10.2, 
9.7, 8.4, 8.4, 8.3, 7.7, 8.3, 9.4, 8.5, 9.4 and 9.6 in the years 1941-51 respect- 
ively. 

(3) The Source and Use of Funds Statement is designed to show net cash 
received from all sources and paid out for all purposes; revaluations or 



purely bookkeeping transactions which affect items of the Balance Sheet 
particularly Plant, Property and Equipment, Preferred and Common 
Stock Outstanding and, in a few instances. Funded Debt, are not reflected 
in the Source and Use of Funds Statement. 

(4) Includes amortization of bond discount. 

(5) Includes adjustments relating to tax accruals and other transactions of 
previous years. 

(6) Special inventory reserves have been deducted. 

(7) Reserves for depreciation and depletion have been deducted. 

(8) Includes current accounts receivable from subsidiaries and fixed invest- 
ment in subsidiaries less current and non-current accounts payable to 
subsidiaries. 

(9) Includes bond discount and other deferred charges, deferred development, 
etc. 

(10) Includes pension fund reserves, insurance reserves and advance payments 
on contracts (net) and government accounts (net). 

(11) Bonds and mortgages outstanding less sinking fund. 

(12) Includes contingent and general reserves, capital surplus and the refund- 
able portion of the Excess Profits Tax. 

(13) Includes the Refundable Portion of the Excess Profits Tax. amounting 
to 19.1, 32.0, 26.9, 25.7, 2.1 and .1 in the years 1942-47 respectively.
