President’s message

The Honourable Scott Brison

The Honourable
Scott Brison

I am pleased to present the 2016–17 Departmental Results Report for the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat. Canadians expect and deserve a government that represents their interests, delivers the services they need, and achieves meaningful results. We promised Canadians a government that would bring real change and that would be clear about how we define success. To that end, the Prime Minister gave me an ambitious set of priorities in my mandate letter.

In 2016–17, we began to deliver on these priorities. We strengthened the oversight of taxpayers’ dollars by changing the timing of the Estimates to better align with the Budget, and by introducing a new Policy on Results. We made government more open and transparent by getting rid of all access to information fees except for the initial $5 filing fee, and by modernizing the Policy on Communications and Federal Identity. We continued to rebuild a culture of respect in the public service by moving to repeal unfair labour laws and reaching tentative collective agreements covering more than 85% of employees.

I am encouraged by our progress so far. Going forward, I know that I can count on a fully engaged, dedicated and professional public service. Together, we will make the Government of Canada the best it can be.

I invite all Canadians to read this report to find out more about our efforts at the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat to create the effective, responsible government Canadians deserve.

The Honourable Scott Brison
President of the Treasury Board
