Report on annual expenditures for travel, hospitality and conferences for the fiscal year 2017-18

As required by the Treasury Board Directive on Travel, Hospitality, Conference and Event Expenditures, this report provides information on the annual expenditures for each of travel, hospitality and conferences for the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2018, except for information withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act.

Travel, hospitality and conference expenditures incurred by a federal department or agency relate to activities that support the department or agency’s mandate and the government’s priorities.

This information is updated annually and does not contain information withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act.

The CGC’s travel, hospitality and conferences expenditures support the delivery of its programs and services to Canadians.

The CGC administers the provisions of the Canada Grain Act (CGA). The CGC’s mandate as set out in the CGA is to, “in the interests of the grain producers, establish and maintain standards of quality for Canadian grain and regulate grain handling in Canada, to ensure a dependable commodity for domestic and export markets”. To effectively pursue its mandate and make a difference to Canadians, the CGC aims to achieve one strategic outcome: Canada’s grain is safe, reliable and marketable and Canadian grain producers are properly compensated for grain deliveries to licensed grain companies. The CGC supports its strategic outcome through four programs: Quality Assurance Program, Quantity Assurance Program, the Grain Quality Research Program, and the Producer Protection Program. Internal Services supports all programs within the CGC. Further information on the CGC’s programs and activities is available in the CGC’s Departmental Plan and the Departmental Results Report.
