Info Source

Info Source: Sources of Federal Government and Employee Information provides information about the functions, programs, activities and related information holdings of government institutions subject to the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act. It provides individuals and employees of the government (current and former) with relevant information to access personal information about themselves held by government institutions subject to the Privacy Act and to exercise their rights under the Privacy Act.

Proactive Disclosure

One of these measures includes the proactive disclosure of financial and human resources-related information by departments and agencies. By making this information readily available on departmental web sites, Canadians and Parliament are better able to hold the Government and public sector officials to account.

To this end, the Government announced the mandatory publication on departmental Web sites of travel and hospitality expenses for selected government officials; contracts entered into by the Government of Canada for amounts over $10,000 (with only limited exceptions such as national security); and the reclassification of positions.

Travel and Hospitality Expense Reports

We are currently moving our proactive disclosure to the Open Government Portal. Reports published prior to March 2, 2016 may still be found on our website.

Overview

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 website provides information on the travel and hospitality expenses incurred by the Chairperson of the Military Complaints Commission of Canada. The information is based on a 6‑year period and has been updated every three months between March 31, 2004 and and June 2, 2019. Following Royal Assent on June 21, 2019 of Bill C‑58, an Act to amend the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act, starting with June 2019, the report is updated monthly.

The rules and principles governing travel are outlined in the Policies 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 Directive on Travel, Hospitality, Conference and Event Expenditures. 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.

You can also access the reports on annual expenditures for travel, hospitality and conferences of the Military Police Complaints Commission of Canada. These reports will be updated annually, beginning on October 31, 2011.
