Full-Time Equivalents (FTEs)

Taxpayer-supported FTEs, including ministries/special offices (CRF) and service delivery agencies, are projected at 36,095 in 2008/09. This represents an increase of 1,564 FTEs from 2007/08 and is 1,529 FTEs higher than the projection in Budget 2007. The increase reflects government’s priority to build internal capacity in a number of areas, including children at risk and healthcare as well as reflecting transit expansion.

By 2010/11, FTEs are projected to increase a further 449 to total 36,544 FTEs. Table 2.18 provides details of changes from Budget 2007. FTEs of the SUCH sector are not included in these forecasts.

Ministries/special offices (CRF)

The 2008/09 FTEs projection for ministries and special offices is 31,830 – a net increase of 1,249 FTEs from Budget 2007. The increase primarily reflects government’s priority to build internal capacity in a number of areas, including additional resources for children at risk or with special needs, additional court enforcement, healthcare, and corrections requirements.

Service delivery agencies

The 2008/09 service delivery agencies FTE projection is 4,265 – an increase of 280 FTEs from Budget 2007. The increase is primarily due to the requirements for expanded transit service that is part of the provincial government’s climate action plan. Other increases include additional staff to manage the single room occupancy accommodations purchased by government in support of low income housing, and program increases for children and family development agencies (see Table 2.18). By 2010/11, service delivery agency FTEs are projected to increase to 4,365, mainly reflecting further transit expansion.
