Members who hold ministerial or parliamentary office receive an additional salary that corresponds to a percentage of their basic compensation. If a Member holds two or more positions for which an additional salary is granted, the Member will receive only the higher amount.

The additional salary paid to a Member elected as Chair or Deputy Chair of a Select Standing or Special Committee is included in a Member’s bi-weekly pay cheque. Payment will be made from the date the resolutions electing the Chair and Deputy Chair are passed by the Committee until the last day of the bi-weekly pay period in which prorogation of the session occurs.
