This section provides information on the travel and hospitality expenses incurred within the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) by the Ministers and their exempt staff, and by senior employees at the Deputy Minister, Assistant Deputy Minister, and equivalent levels.
The rules and principles governing travel are outlined in the Policies for Ministers’ Offices, the National Joint Council Travel Directive and Treasury Board’s Special Travel Authorities.
