New for July 1, 2016, we have expanded the International per diem rates to include cities as per the National Joint Council (NJC) of Canada table. For rates effective July 1, 2016 all country and all city per diem rates listed on the NJC site have been loaded into Concur and will now populate in your Concur claim from your created itinerary.

The above rates are effective dated in Concur and will auto populate in your expense reports based on your travel dates.
