Travel and Hospitality Expenses

On December 12, 2003, the Prime Minister announced a new policy on the mandatory publication of travel and hospitality expenses for selected government officials.

The rules and principles governing travel and hospitality are outlined in the Guidelines for Ministers' Offices and in CDC's Directive on Travel, Hospitality, Conference and Event Expenditures and  Treasury Board's Special Travel Authorities. The purpose of these directives is to provide for the reimbursement of reasonable expenses necessarily incurred during travel on government business and to ensure that hospitality is extended in an economical and affordable way when it facilitates government business or is considered desirable as a matter of courtesy and protocol. Since September 2007, the expense spreadsheet has three pages and includes the expenses of the CEO, of the Chairman and of the Commissioner.
