How are individuals appointed to agencies compensated?
While there is no requirement that appointees be paid (as this is at the discretion of the minister), in most cases, individuals appointed by the government to serve on the governance bodies of agencies are compensated under Order in Council 103/2006, created under the authority of the Public Service Act, which outlines the remuneration schedule. In other cases, remuneration rates are at the discretion of the board. The primary consideration of the guidelines is that directors are not incurring expenses in order to provide a public service. The specific qualifications of individual appointees are not a factor in determining an appropriate rate of remuneration, and appointees to agencies within functional categories are to be remunerated in a consistent manner.
