Duty Travel Rates

Duty Travel Rates - An employee who is authorized to travel on Government business will be reimbursed for reasonable expenses incurred.

The Government of the Northwest Territories adjusts these rates as the Federal rates are changed.

Federal kilometric rates are reviewed four times a year: January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1.
