Ministry Hospitality Directive

When making Passport claims, out-of-pocket expenses (like cost of meals and transportation costs) for support workers who serve Passport recipients may be reimbursed (Please note that the cost of meals for the Passport recipient are not eligible as per the MCSS).

The Ministry of Community and Social Services does however, recommend that Passport recipients use the travel and meal expense limits set out in the Government of Ontario’s “Travel, Meals and Hospitality Expenses Directive” for government employees as a guide for support worker expenses.

Refer to page 19 of the Directive regarding suggested mileage rates and page 24 of the Directive regarding meal rates (Please note that the remainder of the Directive does not apply to the Passport program).
