On the Regular Council Meeting on January 10, 2019, Council will be discussing Council Remuneration and a resolution will be passed to increase the current remuneration.
As part of its 2017 Budget, the Federal Government introduced measures to eliminate tax exemptions for non-accountable expense allowances paid to elected officials effective January 1, 2019. Those changes were enacted by legislation (Bill C44).
Council is moving forward to increase remuneration to compensate for the loss of remuneration due to the changes by the Federal Government.
