C1 – The estimated 2014 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 2014 municipal benefit of the Province's 50 per cent share of land ambulance funding is relative to its share in 2005.
