Both the Parks Canada Agency and the Department of National Defence are funded through allocations of the Parliament of Canada, while the Province of Ontario provides funding for the presentation, visitor services and maintenance of Fort Henry. The annual allocated funds available for conservation are generally adequate for maintenance and small-scale repair work. Largescale projects require special funding. Examples of special funding include the conservation of Shoal Tower, Fort Henry, the Ottawa Reach walls and the Kingston Mills dams. The following table identifies the budget allocations and revenue for the Rideau Canal, Fort Henry and Fort Frederick. All figures are in thousands of dollars.
