Travel Directive

The National Joint Council Travel Directive provides for the reimbursement of reasonable expenses incurred while travelling on government business.

The directive is co-developed by participating bargaining agents and public service employers. It applies to public service employees, exempt staff and other persons travelling on government business, including training.

Learn more by consulting the Travel Directive on the National Joint Council website. Public Service employees with questions regarding travel claims and reimbursements should contact their Designated Departmental Travel Co-ordinator.
