The Government of Canada is working hard to enhance the role of Parliament and the proactive disclosure of information so that Canadians are better able to hold Parliament, their government and public sector officials to account.

To this end, the Government announced the mandatory publication on departmental websites of travel and hospitality expenses for selected government officials; contracts entered into by the Government of Canada for amounts over $10,000 (with only limited exceptions such as national security); the reclassification of positions; and, grants and contributions awards. Departments must also make available all reports for audits and evaluations that they perform.

Please note that information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act does not appear on these pages.

POLAR proactively publishes information related to travel and hospitality expenses, contracting, grants and contributions on Canada's Open Government site. By making this information readily available, Canadians and Parliament are better able to hold the Government and public sector officials to account.
