Canada's government posted a deficit of CAD 1.5 billion in January 2019, compared to a surplus of CAD 0.1 billion in the same month last year. Revenues rose 2.1 percent, boosted by gains in corporate and non-resident income tax revenues, as well as other revenues; while program expenses jumped 9.7 percent, largely reflecting an increase in direct program expenses. Public debt charges decreased 15.3 percent due to lower Consumer Price Index adjustments on Real Return Bonds. Government Budget Value in Canada averaged -978.72 CAD Million from 1985 until 2019, 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.
