    5. Remuneration

    Where appropriate, Chairs and members of Government Boards may be paid daily fees or annual allowances. Members of advisory Government Boards are usually not remunerated. Similarly, public sector employees appointed to Government Boards do not receive additional remuneration for their service on the Government Board, unless specifically authorised.

    Generally, remuneration for Chairs and members of Government Boards is approved by the authority prescribed in the enabling legislation (if the Government Board is established by statute). To comply with the requirements of the enabling legislation, the approval of the prescribed authority (usually the Minister or Governor in Council) must be obtained for the initial determination of fees and allowances and on each and any subsequent occasion when the fees and allowances are adjusted for that Government Board.
