In order to create constant dollar figures with the effects of inflation removed, figures were converted to a base of 2002=100 using Statistics Canada's Consumer Price Index.        
The population estimates used to calculate per capita figures are provided by Statistics Canada, Census and Demographic Statistics, Demography Division. Populations as of July 1st: final intercensal up to 2005, final postcensal for 2006 and 2007, updated postcensal for 2008 and 2009 and preliminary postcensal for 2010.        
The 2007 Federal Budget rolled interim funding to the provinces into the annual federal base allocation for criminal legal aid. This accounts for the increase in federal criminal legal aid funding in 2007/2008.        
Note(s): Figures for federal contributions to civil legal aid are not available through the data reported to the Legal Aid Survey. It is not possible to determine the level of federal funding that has been allocated to civil legal aid since the Canadian Health and Social Transfer and its current successor, the Canadian Social Transfer, replaced the Canada Assistance Plan. When summed, provincial/territorial contributions (Table 3) plus federal contributions (Table 2) may not equal total government contributions (Table 1) for the following reasons: (i) the total government contributions figure in Table 1 is provided by the legal aid plans, whereas the provincial/territorial and federal contributions figures are obtained from the appropriate government department; (ii) any difference in accounting methods (i.e. cash versus accrual) may cause differences in the fiscal period that contributions are accounted for; and (iii) legal aid plans may have submitted back claims to the federal government, which are accounted for in the total government contributions figure. For more details on legal aid concepts and terminology refer to the glossary.
