Proactive disclosure

The Government of Canada is working hard to enhance the role of Parliament and the proactive disclosure of information so that Canadians are better able to hold Parliament, their Government, and public sector officials to account.

To this end, the government announced the mandatory publication on departmental websites 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); the reclassification of positions; and, most recently, the disclosure of grants and contributions for amounts over $25,000 (with limited exceptions similar to those applying to contracts).

Statistics Canada also discloses the following information related to its operations: temporary help, call-ups, entered into for amounts less than $10,000.

Please note that information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act does not appear on this website.
