For years, as long as I can remember actually, the Alberta Rules of Court have referred to the
Public Service Subsistence, Travel and Moving Expenses
for calculating the appropriate mileage reimbursement and costs for meals that are paid to witnesses as conduct money.
Don't bother clicking the link above, because this regulation no longer exists.
The Subsistence, Travel and Moving Expenses regulation was published on the Government of Alberta Corporate Human Resources
website. Likely because it is frequently changed and 'only' applies to the Alberta public service, this regulation, like all regulations made under the Public Service Act, are exempt from publication in the Alberta Gazette.
The big 'however' is that the regulation in question is used by reference in the Alberta Rules of Court at Schedule B s.19
to calculate conduct money.
There is a new portion of the site
Relocation and Employment Expenses
Unfortunately, the mileage and meals allowed expenses amount is now only available to the Government of Alberta Employees visiting this site. Your Field Librarians will work on updating our links and seeking out an alternative source for this necessary information.
UPDATE: Corporate Human Resources will email you a copy of the directive on request to GoAExpensesDirective@gov.ab.ca
. I have written to ask that they make this document accessible to the public.
