Service Fees

On April 1, 2022, the Canada Gazette made changes to its publishing rate model, including remissions for failing to meet its service standard. Our service standard is to maintain a publishing accuracy rating of over 99% for every notice we publish. The standard applies to errors that we publish (for example, typo, mistake or something different than what you provide to us).

Remissions are the reimbursement of a fee or portion of a fee for failing to meet our service standard, and only applies to non-federal entities (for example, crown corporations, private sector and other levels of government) that are not listed in Schedule I and I.1 and II of the Financial Administration Act.

We were required to make these changes based on legislation called the Service Fees Act, which increases transparency, accountability and predictability regarding service fees that the Government of Canada charges to Canadians.


Remissions are dependent on the overall percentage of accuracy of the publication. This calculation is based on the total number of pages containing errors. Any publication that has the accuracy of 99% or more is not entitled to a remission.

Example: If your notice is 25 pages, and we publish 5 pages that contain errors, we will divide the number of incorrect pages by the total number of pages: 5/25 = 20%. This means that reimbursement will be 20% of our listed publishing rates.

Interest will not be paid for remissions. Only the value of the fees that did not meet service standards will be reimbursed.

Reimbursement and concerns

We will try to reimburse you as soon as we become aware that we did not meet our service standard. While we will try to reimburse you as soon as we become aware, you should expect to be reimbursed no later than March 31 of the same fiscal year that the error was made. Our fiscal year runs from April 1 to March 31. In circumstances where we publish something erroneously towards the end of our fiscal year, we must reimburse you no later than the following June 30.

Contact us if you have questions about remissions or if you notice a mistake in your publication that we caused by:
