About this information

On June 21, 2019, Bill C-58 (An Act to amend the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act and to make consequential amendments to other Acts) received royal assent.

Consequently, amendments to the Access to Information Act require institutions across the government to proactively publish a wide range of information, including the proactive publication of hospitality expense information of senior officers or employees as described below:

• Hospitality expense information must be published in electronic form within 30 days after the end of the month in which expenses incurred were reimbursed.

The Government of Canada extends hospitality in accordance with the rules and principles outlined in the Policies for Ministers' Offices and the Treasury Board Directive on Travel, Hospitality, Conference and Event Expenditures. The objective of these instruments 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.

The information on this web site will be updated monthly, beginning July 2019.

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.
