Foreign Service Directives

1. The Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs has been delegated to revise Appendix B of FSD 56, on the recommendation of the appropriate foreign service interdepartmental coordinating committee, in accordance with the methodology agreed to in the National Joint Council Committee on Foreign Service Directives.

2. As per FSD 56.11.2, Appendix B has been updated, reflecting 80% of return full (Y) economy air fare from the post to the employee's headquarters city. Where a Y fare is not available for a specific post, 100% of the Y2 fare is used for that post.

3. The table below reflects these PSA rates effective June 1, 2012. The rates are based on return travel to Ottawa.
