Minister’s message

The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson

On behalf of the Agency Footnote 1, I am pleased to present our report on fees for fiscal year 2018 to 2019, my organization’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 Agency’s authority, along with anticipated increases, was added to the reporting requirements.

In the spirit of open and transparent fee management, this year’s report provides additional context and detail on each fee, including the type and rate of adjustment, the service standard, and the performance result.

I welcome the increased transparency and oversight that the Service Fees Act’s reporting regime embodies. I will continue to lead the Agency’s transition to this modern Framework.

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 the Agency’s enabling legislation. It does not include remissions issued under the Service Fees Act.
