Proactive Disclosure

As part of its commitment to good governance, PPP Canada has policies in place with respect to the reimbursement of reasonable expenses required for the purposes of business travel, attending conferences and hospitality. These policies include robust processes for preparation and approval of expenses for reimbursement.

On December 12, 2003, the Government of Canada introduced a new guideline which stipulates that all travel and hospitality expenses for selected government officials be posted on institutional web sites. While the requirement did not apply to Crown corporations, PPP Canada’s Board of Directors decided to make available the travel and hospitality expenses incurred within the Corporation for all Board of Directors members and all senior executives.

On July 16, 2015, Order in Council 2015-1107 was issued requiring PPP Canada to align its travel, hospitality, conference and event expenditure policies, guidelines and practices with Treasury Board policies, directives and related instruments. PPP Canada is in compliance with this requirement and governs its travel and conference expenses and extends hospitality in accordance with the rules and principles outlined in PPP Canada’s Directive on Travel, Hospitality, Conference and Event Expenditures [PDF, 434.9 KB] [PDF, 434.9 KB]. The objective of the Directive is that travel, hospitality, conference and event expenditures be managed with prudence and probity, and represent the most economic and efficient use of funds given the nature of the activity in relation to the achievement of PPP Canada’s core mandate.

In addition to disclosing travel and hospitality expenses for its Board of Directors, PPP Canada has elected to disclose information relating to retainer and per diem payments. More details on these payments can be found in PPP Canada’s annual reports.
