Summary of expenses for Hubert T. Lacroix

Period July 1 to September 30, 2011

CBC/Radio-Canada has adopted a de-centralised approach to its head office functions. This requires the President and CEO to maintain offices in Toronto, Ottawa and Montréal. He holds Senior Executive Team meetings five times a year in one of these cities, and attends meetings of the Corporation's Board of Directors six times a year across the country. The President also travels to meet with employees in the regions.

With a large base of corporate stakeholders scattered throughout the country, the President must represent the national public broadcaster at a number of industry events and cultivate relationships with many key individuals and groups.

Hubert T. Lacroix began his term as President and CEO of CBC/Radio-Canada on January 1, 2008.
