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 page provides information on the travel and hospitality expenses incurred within the Correctional Service of Canada by the Commissioner, senior executives, publics servants and non–public servants, based on the format outlined in the Template and Guidance for Expenditures on Travel, Hospitality and Conferences.

The rules and principles governing travel are outlined 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 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 will be updated every three months, beginning on March 31, 2004.
