Departmental Plans


Beginning in 2017, to provide improved reporting to Parliament and to Canadians, the Report on Plans and Priorities will be replaced by the Departmental Plan. While this change is mandated by the federal government, it is also aligned with the CNSC’s goal of continuous improvement and increased transparency for all Canadians.

Departmental Plans (DPs) are individual expenditure plans for each department and agency (excluding Crown corporations).

These reports provide increased levels of detail on a business line basis and contain information on objectives, initiatives and planned results, including links to related resource requirements over a three-year period. The DPs also provide details on human resource requirements, major capital projects, grants and contributions, and net program costs. They are tabled in Parliament by the President of the Treasury Board on behalf of the ministers who preside over these organizations.
