To this end, the Government of Canada 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 grant and contribution awards.
