2018-2019 Departmental Fees Report (PDF, 768 KB)

The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau,
Privy Councillor, Member of Parliament,
Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food

Minister's message

On behalf of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, I am pleased to present our report on fees for fiscal year 2018 to 2019, my organization's second annual report under the Service Fees Act.

The act provides a modern legislative framework that enables cost-effective delivery of services and, through better reporting to Parliament, improves transparency and oversight.

Last year, a detailed listing of individual fees under the department's authority, along with anticipated increases, was added to the reporting requirements.

This year’s report provides more detail on each fee, such as the type and rate of adjustment, the service standard and the performance result. This information provides additional context on each fee, in the spirit of open and transparent fee management.

I welcome the increased transparency and oversight that the Service Fees Act's reporting regime embodies. I will continue to lead my department's transition to this modern framework.

The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau,
Privy Councillor, Member of Parliament
Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food

Remissions

A remission is a partial or full return of a fee to a fee payer who paid for a service for which a department deemed that the service standard was not met.

Under the Service Fees Act, departments must develop policies for determining whether a service standard has been met and for determining how much of a fee will be remitted to a fee payer. This requirement does not take effect until April 1, 2020. This report therefore includes only those remissions issued under Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's enabling legislation. It does not include remissions issued under the Service Fees Act.
