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.
