Agriculture’s use of consultants is relatively low. The biggest pay-out in the years examined was to Stantec Consulting LTD during the 2012-2013 period ($295,577). Spending on consulting during this period peaked ($557,363), but dropped to its lowest cost during the following year, 2013-2014 ($120,256). However, it should be noted that two of the 2012-2013 consultants are now Ministry employees, presumably reducing the external payee list while transferring costs to internal payroll (Shelley Jones became Manager of Agriculture Awareness; Gregory Haase became Senior Advisor to the Deputy Minister.) 

 

Payees during the past two available years, 2013-2014 and 2012-2013, included:
