The public disclosure of expenses is an important part of government’s commitment to protect taxpayer dollars, improve transparency and increase accountability.
In September 2009, the Government of Ontario announced a new disclosure mandate effective September 1, 2009 on travel, meals and hospitality expenses for every publicly funded organization that receives provincial funding in excess of $10 million.
The rules and principles governing travel are outlined in the Travel, Meal and Hospitality Expenses Directive. The purpose of these directives is to provide for the reimbursement of reasonable expenses necessarily incurred during travel on government business.
The Government of Ontario extends hospitality in accordance with the rules and principles outlined in the Travel Directive. The objective of the policy is to ensure that hospitality is extended in an economical and affordable way when it facilitates government business or is considered desirable as a matter of courtesy and protocol.
