Proactive disclosure of Departmental Audit Committee members' expenses

The requirement to proactively disclose Departmental Audit Committee members' remuneration and expenses is consistent with the Government of Canada's commitment to transparency and modern comptrollership. It is also a good governance practice aligned with requirements for senior government officials and with private sector requirements under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). As this is a requirement carried out under the Policy on Internal Audit, it is separate from the process of proactive disclosure for senior executives. Disclosure will start with the DAC members' remuneration and expenses incurred during the first quarter of 2018.

This information is published on the Open Government portal on a quarterly basis.
