57. The Government may, by regulation, determine the cases in which the awarding of grants or other forms of financial assistance requires the authorization of the Government or the Conseil du trésor. The Government or the Conseil du trésor, as the case may be, may attach conditions to its authorization.
Where a grant or other form of financial assistance requires authorization, the recipient must report on the use of the grant or assistance unless exempted from doing so in the authorization. The report must contain the elements that may be prescribed by the minister or body providing the grant or assistance; the Conseil du trésor may also prescribe the elements that are to be included in the report. Where a grant or other form of financial assistance does not require authorization, the minister or body providing the grant or assistance may require that the recipient file a report as specified.
The Government may determine the cases in which the capital program of a department or body that has an impact on government expenditure is subject to the approval of the Conseil du trésor.
