Departmental Results Report

WD's Departmental Results Report (DRR), formerly the Departmental Performance Report, outlines WD's achievements against the performance expectations and commitments as set out in WD's Report on Plans and Priorities. The DRR plays a key role in the cycle of planning, monitoring, evaluating and reporting of results through ministers to Parliament and Canadians.

WD’s Quarterly Financial Report presents timely financial information to Parliamentarians and by extension to Canadians, on how the department delivers its programs and services. The Treasury Board Secretariat Policy on Financial Resource Management, Information and Reporting requires that departments, agencies and Crown corporations publish a quarterly financial report for the first three quarters of each fiscal year, starting April 1, 2011.
