Proactive Disclosure

Proactive Disclosure is a result of the Government of Canada working to improve the disclosure of information so that Canadians are better able to hold Parliament, the government, and public corporations accountable. Blue Water Bridge provides many services around the core operation of supporting an international bridge. Please visit the Treasury Board Secretariat’s proactive disclosure site for information about proactive disclosure at all Government of Canada institutions.

Disclosure of Travel and Hospitality Expenses

On December 12, 2003, the government released the Guide for Ministers and Ministers of State and Guidelines for Ministers' Offices, which stipulate that all travel and hospitality expenses for Ministers, Ministers of State, Parliamentary Secretaries, and their exempt staff will be provided on institutional Web sites. In line with this commitment, the requirement also extends to senior level Government of Canada employees.

Reporting shall be on a quarterly basis, corresponding to pre-determined periods. Information must be posted on-line within thirty days of the end of each reporting period.
