Travel and Hospitality Expenses

Transparency and Disclosure

As part of our commitment to good governance, we have policies governing the reimbursement of reasonable expenses required for the purposes of business travel and hospitality. These policies include processes for preparation and approval of expenses for reimbursement.

We voluntarily report annual corporate expenses related to travel and business development activities through our website, as well as the travel and hospitality expenses for our President and CEO and senior executives. Expenses are reported by month and are reflected in the period during which they are reported in our financial records. Prior years expenses related to travel and business development activities can be found in the archive section on our website.

The following disclosure includes business expenses related to travel and hospitality expenses for the following activities: board of director-related meetings, corporate representation and business development and operational meetings. Information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act does not appear in this section.
