Canadian Debt Clock November 2014





Canadian Debt Clock

The Current Outstanding Public Debt of Canada is approximately:


$619,674,167,665.25 CDN

Last Updated: June 19th, 2014


Every man, woman and child in Canada (Canada currently has a population of around 34.48 million people) currently owes $17,970.56 for their share of Canada's public debt



Q. How much does the Canadian government spend each year to service its debt?

A. In 2007-08 (to give you an example), the federal government in Canada spent $33.3 billion dollars to service its debt. This was down from the year before due to "lower debt levels and lower financing rates".

The Canadian government spent 2.2% of the GDP of the nation to service its debt in 2007-08.

The Canadian government spent 13.7% of its budgetary revenues on public debt charges in 2007-08. This sounds like a lot until you consider that this number was 37.6% in 1990-91.

Q. Who does Canada Owe Money To?

A. Here is a breakdown of the largest holders of Canadian debt:

Life insurance companies and pension funds - 24%
Mutual funds, investment dealers, etc - 22%
Non-residents - 14%
Chartered banks and "near-banks" - 12%

"Other" financial institutions also make up a large % of the public debt holdings for Canada, although I couldn't extract an exact percentage for this group.

Other smaller groups that hold Canadian debt include: the Bank of Canada, different levels of government in Canada (federal, provincial, municipal, social security), persons and unincorporated businesses and non-financial corporations.

Q. Is the number listed above the gross debt number for Canada?

A. No. The gross debt of the country was nearly $700 billion dollars as of March 31st, 2008. The number listed above comes after you subtract financial assets (cash, reserves, outstanding loans) and non-financial assets.

Q. Has the amount of federal debt been decreasing over the past number of years?

A. No. Since the "Great Recession" of 2008, the Canadian government has been steadily adding to its debt load, much like the rest of the world.

Q. What is the difference between debt and deficits?

A. Debt vs deficits.

Q. Why does the United States owe so much more than Canada ($17 trillion dollars vs $600+ billion)?

A. This is an unfair comparison when you consider that the U.S. economy is approximately 10 times larger than the Canadian economy.

It's a much fairer comparison to compare the "per capita" (per person) amount owed.

Each Canadian currently owes approximately $17,970.56 as their share of the Canadian national debt.

Each American currently owes approximately $59,099 as their share of the US national debt.
