Advertising reporting requirement
Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) must produce an annual report on our advertising activities as described in the Directive on the Management of Communications. The first report was produced for the 2002 to 2003 fiscal year.
The annual report takes between 6 and 8 months to complete. It starts after institutions receive final invoices for their advertising expenditures.
Over 80 individual government institutions listed in Schedule I, Schedule I.1 and Schedule II of the Financial Administration Act report their advertising activities to PSPC.
