Administrative Tribunal Appointee Remuneration
Appointees to Administrative Tribunals are eligible for remuneration which may be provided to appointees either directly by government or by its relevant entities.
The Treasury Board Directives on appointee remuneration provide guidelines to ensure a consistent and transparent approach to how much is paid to appointees across the public sector.
The Appointee Remuneration Committee (ARC) is comprised of deputy ministers and is established to administer the remuneration guidelines. In addition to providing general support and recommendations to Treasury Board on matters of appointee remuneration, ARC is responsible for classifying boards and tribunals within the established classification framework. Once ARC classifies a board or tribunal, the Minister Responsible can then establish specific remuneration amounts within the approved ranges. ARC also administers requests for permanent or temporary exceptions to the Treasury Board Directives.
Ministries are responsible for setting the remuneration for their respective boards and tribunals within the permitted ranges set in the Treasury Board Directives. Ministries are also responsible for ensuring accurate annual disclosure of remuneration and expenses paid to boards and administrative tribunals.
