Figures include the amount billed to the province, territory or municipality for Royal Canadian Mounted Police contract policing and not the total cost of the contract. In some provinces, provincial policing is paid for by the municipalities.
The per capita cost field is not included as expenditures are not comparable. Per capita costs should not be calculated.
Federal expenditures include all other Royal Canadian Mounted Police contract expenditures which are not paid for by the municipality or the province and territory for those provinces and territories with contracts with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (see footnote 8).
Includes municipal, provincial and territorial, federal and other Royal Canadian Mounted Police expenditures (see footnote 8).Total operating expenditures include salaries, wages, benefits, and other operating expenses that are paid from the police service budget, as well as benefits paid from other government sources. Revenues, recoveries, and those costs that fall under a police service's capital expenditures are excluded.
Provincial policing figures include both the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Totals may not add up due to rounding. Expenditure figures represent gross operating expenditures and include costs that are paid from police department budgets and benefits paid from other sources. Revenues, recoveries and capital expenditures are excluded. Due to rounding and the timing of data collection, the above figures may not correspond to the actual expenditures shown on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Year-end Final Reconciliation Report. Provincial expenditures should not be compared.
