2019 to 2020 Fees Report
This report, which is tabled under section 20 of the Service Fees Act and section 4.2.8 of the Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities, contains information about the fees that the Department of Justice had the authority to set in 2019–20.
Government of Canada departments may set fees for services, licences, permits, products, the use of facilities; for other authorizations of rights or privileges; or to recover, in whole or in part, costs incurred in relation to a regulatory scheme.
For reporting purposes, fees must be categorized under the following three fee setting mechanisms:
Act, regulation or fees notice ◦An act of Parliament delegates the fee setting authority to a department, minister or Governor in Council.
Contract ◦ Ministers have the authority to enter into contracts, which are usually negotiated between the minister and an individual or organization, and which cover fees and other terms and conditions. In some cases, that authority may also be provided by an act of Parliament.
Market-rate or auction or both ◦ The authority to set these fees is pursuant to an act of Parliament or regulation, and the minister, department or Governor in Council has no control over the fee amount.
This report contains information about all fees that are under the Department of Justice’s authority, including any that are collected by another department.
The information covers fees that are subject to the Service Fees Act and fees that are exempted from the Service Fees Act.
For fees set by contract, fees set by market-rate, auction or both, the report provides totals only. For fees set by act, regulation or fees notice, it provides totals for fee groupings, as well as detailed information for each fee.
Although the fees that the Department of Justice charges under the Access to Information Act are subject to the Service Fees Act, they are not included in this report. Information on the Department of Justice’s access to information fees for 2019–20 can be found in our access to information report, which is posted on the Department of Justice Access to Information and Privacy Research and Reports web page.
