2013 Transition-Year Stable Funding Allocation Notice - Line Item Descriptions

A – The 2013 Transition-Year Stable Funding Allocation ensures that in 2013 municipalities will receive a guaranteed level of support based on their 2012 OMPF allocation.

C1 – The estimated municipal benefit of the Province's 75 per cent share of public health funding relative to its 50 per cent share in 2004. Actual municipal savings may not correspond with the Allocation Notice due to budget approvals made by the local Boards of Health. Municipalities may provide additional funding beyond their obligated cost share. Any additional municipal funding is not included in the calculation of the public health figure.

C2 – The estimated municipal benefit of the Province's 50 per cent share of land ambulance funding is relative to its share in 2005. This incremental increase in land ambulance funding delivers on the Province's commitment to strengthen land ambulance services and maintain the 50:50 sharing of land ambulance costs.
