Travel and Hospitality Expense Reports


CanNor’s Proactive Disclosure reports prior to March 2, 2010, can be found on the Indian and Northern Affairs Canada   website.

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 Indian and Northern Affairs Canada by the Minister, 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.
