Minister's message

The Honourable Navdeep Bains

On behalf of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), I am pleased to present our report on fees for .

The Service Fees Act provides a modern legislative framework that enables cost-effective delivery of services and, through better reporting to Parliament, improves transparency and oversight.

The CSA reports to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry. Its mandate, as defined in the Canadian Space Agency Act, is "to promote the peaceful use and development of space, to advance the knowledge of space through science and to ensure that Canadians benefit from space science and technology in both social and economic terms."

To fulfill its mandate, the CSA provides certain services for fees set by contract.

I will continue to lead my department's transition to the reporting regime provided under the Service Fees Act.

The Honourable Navdeep Bains, P.C., M.P.
Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry

About this report

This report, which is tabled under section 20 of the Service Fees Act and subsection 4.2.8 of the Directive on Charging and Special Financial Authorities, contains information about the fees that the CSA had the authority to set in .

Government of Canada departments may set fees for services, licences, permits, products, the use of facilities; for other authorizations of rights or privileges; or to recover, in whole or in part, costs incurred in relation to a regulatory scheme.

For reporting purposes, fees must be categorized under the following three fee setting mechanisms:

  1. Act, regulation or fees notice
    • An act of Parliament delegates the fee-setting authority to a department, minister or Governor in Council.
  2. Contract
    • Ministers have the authority to enter into contracts, which are usually negotiated between the minister and an individual or organization, and which cover fees and other terms and conditions. In some cases, that authority may also be provided by an act of Parliament.
  3. Market-rate or auction or both
    • The authority to set these fees is pursuant to an act of Parliament or regulation, and the minister, department or Governor in Council has no control over the fee amount.

This report contains information about fees that are under CSA's authority, including any that are collected by another department. No fees under the CSA's authority are set by act, regulation or fees notice. This report therefore only covers fees set by contract. It provides total revenue and costs only.

Although the fees charged by the CSA under the Access to Information Act are subject to the Service Fees Act, they are not included in this report. Information under the CSA's access to information fees for can be found in the access to information report, which is posted on CSA's Reports to Parliament website.
