Proactive Disclosure

The Government of Canada is working hard to enhance the role of Parliament and the proactive disclosure of information so that Canadians are better able to hold Parliament, their Government, and public sector officials to account.

To this end, the government announced the mandatory publication on departmental websites of travel and hospitality expenses for selected government officials; contracts entered into by the Government of Canada for amounts over $10,000 (with only limited exceptions such as national security); the reclassification of positions; and, most recently, the disclosure of grants and contributions for amounts over $25,000 (with limited exceptions similar to those applying to contracts).

The links listed below provide access to the following reports:

  • Disclosure of wrongdoings in the public sector
    • The Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act states that if a disclosure made under its jurisdiction leads to a finding of wrongdoing, the chief executive must provide public access to information related to this wrongdoing.
