Disclosure of 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. This web site provides information on the travel and hospitality expenses incurred within the Office of the Administrator of the Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund. The rules and principles governing travel are outlined in the 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 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.
Starting in September 2019, disclosure of travel and hospitality expenses will be updated monthly. Previously, this update was done every three months.
