Report on Annual Expenditures for Travel, Hospitality and Conferences

As required by the Treasury Board Directive for the Management of Expenditures on Travel, Hospitality and Conferences, this report provides information on the total annual expenditures for each of travel, hospitality and conferences for the Canadian Transportation Agency for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011.

This information is updated annually and does not contain information withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act.

Expenditures on travel, hospitality and conferences incurred by federal departments and agencies are for the most part directly related to supporting departmental mandate(s) and the government’s priorities.

In particular, for the Canadian Transportation Agency, this includes the delivery of the following two key functions:

  • As a quasi-judicial tribunal, the Agency, informally and through formal adjudication, resolves a range of commercial and consumer transportation-related disputes, including accessibility issues for persons with disabilities. It operates like a court when adjudicating disputes; and
  • As an economic regulator, the Agency makes determinations and issues authorities, licenses and permits to transportations carriers under federal jurisdiction.

Further information on the mandate, roles, responsibilities and programs of the Agency can be found in the 2010-2011 Departmental Performance Report on the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat’s website.
