Canada's government budget deficit narrowed to CAD 1.9 billion in August 2018 from CAD 2.6 billion in the same month of the previous year. Revenues climbed 10.4 percent to CAD 25.1 billion, boosted by increases in tax revenues, Employment Insurance (EI) premium revenues and other revenues. Program expenses rose 6 percent to CAD 25.0 billion, largely reflecting an increase in direct program expenses. Public debt charges were up 10.9 percent, due mainly to higher Consumer Price Index adjustments on Real Return Bonds. Government Budget Value in Canada averaged -980.71 CAD Million from 1985 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 5770 CAD Million in February of 2005 and a record low of -10629 CAD Million in March of 2018.
