Continuation of Allowances

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Capital City Living Allowance

The Capital City Living Allowance will be paid to the end of December 2020 for Members not returning. Members who rent accommodation in the Victoria area must provide their landlord sufficient lease termination notice to avoid any additional expense.

Members’ Travel Expense Allowance

The Members’ Travel Expense Allowance is paid on a quarterly basis. Amounts issued in Quarter 2 (July 1 to September 30) that overlap with the election period will be recovered.

Constituency Office Allowance

Constituency office allowances will be paid to the end of December 2020 for Members not returning.

Out-of-Constituency Travel

Members will not be reimbursed for Member-related travel costs incurred effective the date of dissolution (for the 42nd provincial general election, September 21, 2020). Members not returning, however, will be reimbursed for one final return trip between Victoria and their constituency to clean out their Victoria office and/or accommodation. For the 42nd provincial general election, this trip should occur on or before December 31, 2020.
