Disclosure of Travel and Hospitality Expenses

Note

The Department of Canadian Heritage is moving its proactive disclosure reports to the Open Government portal. If you cannot find the report you are looking for, you may also visit the Proactive disclosure page on the Open Government portal.

This web site provides information on the travel and hospitality expenses incurred within Canadian Heritage by the Ministers and their exempt staff, and by senior employees at the 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.

The information on this web site is updated every three months.

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.
