Per Diem Reimbursement

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

An MLA may claim up to $61 per day either when in Victoria or when travelling throughout the province on work-related trips. The per diem reimbursement is intended to cover the cost of meals and incidental expenses while a Member is away from their home or constituency. A per diem is not claimable when a Member is working in their constituency, except when attending a parliamentary committee meeting in their riding or if the Member travelled more than 50 kilometers in one day (excluding mileage between the Member’s home and constituency office).

Further details are available in the section on Travel Guidelines.
