Treasury Board Submissions

What is a Treasury Board submission?

A Treasury Board submission is an official document that is used to seek specific authorities or approvals from the Treasury Board to help implement a new program or a project in the Government of Canada. Submissions are brought forward by a minister to undertake an initiative that their organization would not otherwise be able to undertake or that is outside the organization’s delegated authorities.
