Background

In 2008, Council adopted a policy on compensation which provides:

  • A market comparison of Members of Council compensation is conducted in year four of each four year term of Council.  The market comparison will be conducted with comparator municipalities.
  • Base pay for Members of Council is revised annually to reflect any economic adjustment, or as otherwise determined.

The Mayor and Deputy Mayor/Regional Councillor roles are classified as full-time elected offices while Ward Councillors are classified as part-time elected offices.
