The Ontario Public Service’s Travel, Meal and Hospitality Expenses Directive (Travel Directive) requires all “designated persons” in every board-governed agency to publicly disclose expense information.
Designated persons are:
- Appointees (every person appointed to the public entity by the Lieutenant Governor in Council, the Lieutenant Governor or a minister);
- CEOs (the most senior executive position, regardless of title); and
- Every member of senior management that reports directly to the CEO.
Ontario Health’s policy on the reimbursement of travel, meals and hospitality expenses is based on the Travel Directive. The policy establishes rules and principles to ensure fair and reasonable practices in the reimbursement of Ontario Health employees and Board Members for their expenses.
