Important notice: Possible delays in proactive publication of information

Openness, transparency and accountability are guiding principles of the Government of Canada. However, the Government of Canada’s ability to meet timelines for proactive publication may be affected by the current circumstances and exceptional measures put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect the health and safety of our employees. As a result, there may be delays in the proactive publication of information during this period. Making government information available to Canadians proactively continues to be important to us. We will continue to make reasonable efforts to meet the timelines for the proactive disclosure of government information, in accordance with operational realities. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this period as we all navigate these unprecedented challenges.

In support of open government, ESDC provides open access to information about how we spend taxpayer dollars. This makes you better able to hold Parliament, the government, and public sector officials accountable.
