On behalf of Statistics Canada, I am pleased to present our report on fees for fiscal year 2018 to 2019, Statistics Canada's second annual report under the Service Fees Act.

The act provides a modern legislative framework that enables cost-effective delivery of services and, through better reporting to Parliament, improves transparency and oversight.

Last year, a detailed listing of individual fees under the department's authority, along with anticipated increases, was added to the reporting requirements.

This year's report provides more detail on each fee, such as the type and rate of adjustment, the service standard and the performance result. This information provides additional context on each fee, in the spirit of open and transparent fee management.

As part of the Innovation, Science and Economic Development portfolio, Statistics Canada collects fees set by contract from external clients for cost-recovered statistical services.

The Honourable Navdeep Bains, P.C., M.P.
Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development

About this report

This report, which is tabled under section 20 of the Service Fees Act and section 4.2.8 of the Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities, contains information about the fees that Statistics Canada had the authority to charge in the 2018 to 2019 fiscal year.

This report contains information about all fees that are under Statistics Canada's authority, even if some or all of the fees are collected by another department.

The information reported includes fees that:

  • fall under the Service Fees Act
  • are exempt from the Service Fees Act

The information covers fees set by:

  • contract
  • market-base, auction or both
  • act, regulation or fees notice

For fees set by the following mechanisms, the report provides totals only:

  • contract
  • market-base, auction or both

For fees set by act, regulation or fees notice, the report provides totals for fee groupings, as well as detailed information for each individual fee.

Although the fees charged by Statistics Canada under the Access to Information Act are subject to the Service Fees Act, they are not included in this report. Information on Statistics Canada's access to information fees for fiscal year 2018 to 2019 can be found in our access to information report, which is posted on our Corporate Management Reporting web page.

Remissions

A remission is a partial or full return of a fee to a fee payer who paid for a service for which a department deemed that the service standard was not met.

Under the Service Fees Act, departments must develop policies for determining whether a service standard has been met and for determining how much of a fee will be remitted to a fee payer. This requirement does not take effect until April 1, 2020. This report therefore includes only those remissions issued under Statistics Canada's enabling legislation. It does not include remissions issued under the Service Fees Act.

Overall totals, by fee type

The following table presents the total revenue, cost and remissions for all fees that Statistics Canada had the authority to charge in fiscal year 2018 to 2019, by fee type.

A fee grouping is a grouping of all of the fees that a department has the authority to charge for activities relating to a single business line, directorate or program.
