OTTAWA, ON, May 20, 2022 /CNW/ - Today, the Honourable Mona Fortier, President of the Treasury Board of Canada, tabled the Supplementary Estimates (A), 2022–23, in the House of Commons.

These Supplementary Estimates propose $8.8 billion in voted budgetary spending across 26 federal organizations. Among the investments are $3.6 billion to support priorities for Indigenous communities, $1.4 billion for existing and emerging COVID‑19 treatments, $853 million to support Canada's response to the invasion of Ukraine, and $323 million to encourage the use of zero‑emission vehicles.
