Minister's message

On behalf of Public Health Agency of Canada, I am pleased to present our report on fees for 2019-20.

The Service Fees Act provides a modern legislative framework that enables cost-effective delivery of services and, through better reporting to Parliament, improves transparency and oversight.

I will continue to lead my department's transition to the reporting regime provided under the Service Fees Act.

The Honourable Patricia A. Hajdu, P.C., M.P.
Minister of Health

About this report

This report, which is tabled under section 20 of the Service Fees Act and section 4.2.8 of the Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities, contains information about the fees that Public Health Agency of Canada had the authority to set in 2019-20.

Government of Canada departments may set fees for services, licences, permits, products, the use of facilities; for other authorizations of rights or privileges; or to recover, in whole or in part, costs incurred in relation to a regulatory scheme.

For reporting purposes, fees must be categorized under the following three fee setting mechanisms:

This report contains information about all fees that are under Public Health Agency of Canada's authority, including any that are collected by another department.

The information covers fees that are subject to the Service Fees Act.

For fees set by contract, fees set by market-rate, auction or both, the report provides totals only. For fees set by act, regulation or fees notice, it provides totals for fee groupings, as well as detailed information for each fee.

Although the fees that Public Health Agency of Canada charges under the Access to Information Act are subject to the Service Fees Act, they are not included in this report. Information on Public Health Agency of Canada's access to information fees for 2019-20 can be found in our access to information report, which is posted on Access to Information and Privacy Annual Reports.

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 if a service standard is not met. This requirement will not take effect until April 1, 2021, so this report does not include remissions issued under the Service Fees Act. The report also does not include other remissions.
