Travel and Hospitality
On December 12, 2003, the Prime Minister announced a 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 within the Office of the Secretary to the Governor General by the Secretary.
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 Directive on the Management of Expenditures on Travel, Hospitality and Conferences. 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.
