Expenditures on travel, hospitality and conferences incurred by federal departments and agencies are for the most part directly related to supporting departmental mandate(s) and the government's priorities.

In particular, for Federal Judicial Affairs, this includes delivering core programs in support of federal judicial activities and services to Canadians. Under the Program Activity Architecture, the organization is broken down into three program activities: Payments Pursuant to the Judges Act, Canadian Judicial Council, and FJA. These activities strive to meet the priorities of: developing organizational capacity, building a strong, integrated team, improving service delivery, enhancing communications, and managing information.

Further details about FJA's authority, mandate, and program activities can be found below and in FJA's Departmental Performance Report (DPR), Report on Plans and Priorities (RPP), and other relevant documents located on the Treasury Board website at
