How to Use the Database

The Ministerial expense database provides a detailed breakdown of expenses incurred by Ministers during travel. Ministerial Travel expense reports were previously published on a quarterly basis, and provided only a total cost of a trip.

The new database provides a line-by-line breakdown of all expenses to provide more accountability to the public on how Ministers are spending government dollars.  The database has seven categories:

  • Date of trip
  • GNWT Department
  • Minister’s Name
  • Description of trip
  • Type of expense
  • Location of trip
  • Dollar Amount

In order to improve public accountability, the database can be searched based on the categories outlined above.
