Service Canada - Travel & Hospitality Expense Reports

This web site provides information on the travel and hospitality expenses incurred for the department by the Minister, Minister of State, Parliamentary Secretary, and their exempt staff, and by Senior Level employees at the Deputy Minister, Associate Deputy Minister, Assistant Deputy Minister, and equivalent levels.

The rules and principles governing travel are outlined in the Guidelines for Ministers' Offices and in Treasury Board's travel Directive and Special Travel Authorities . The purpose of these directives is to provide for the reimbursement of reasonable expenses necessarily incurred during travel on government business.

The Government of Canada extends hospitality in accordance with the rules and principles outlined in the Guidelines for Ministers' Offices and the Treasury Board hospitality Policy . The objective of the policy is 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.

Service Canada is an initiative led by the Department of Human Resources and Social Development. Since this initiative has been officially launched in September 2005, the information on this Web site will be updated every three months, beginning on December 31, 2005. Travel and hospitality expenses incurred prior to September 2, 2005 by Service Canada designated officials have been disclosed on the Departmental Web site.

Please note that information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act does not appear on this web site.
