As required by the Treasury Board Directive on the Management of Expenditures on Travel, Hospitality and Conferences, this report provides information on the total annual expenditures for each of travel, hospitality, and conferences for the Office of the Auditor General of Canada (OAG) for each fiscal year ending March 31st.
Expenditures on travel, hospitality, and conferences incurred by the OAG are directly related to supporting the OAG’s mandate. In particular, the OAG is in the business of legislative auditing. This includes conducting audits of federal and territorial government operations, and providing Parliament with independent information, advice, and assurance regarding the federal government’s stewardship of public funds. Since 1995, the OAG has also had a specific environmental and sustainable development mandate, established through amendments to the Auditor General Act.
