Members are reimbursed for travel to the Legislative Assembly for meetings of the House and for meetings of standing committees of which they are a member.
Mileage for most members is reimbursed according to the cents/kilometer rates found in Treasury Board Policy 17.02 multiplied by the distance from the members' home to the Legislative Assembly (or committee meeting location) and back to the member's home for the round trip distance. The mileage rates are updated monthly.
The maximum number of reimburseable round-trips are:
During House sessions
1 round-trip for each sitting day
Up to 5 round trips per month (up to 8 round-trips per month for the Leader of a Third Party)
1 round-trip per committee meeting (multiple meetings on one day are reimbursed as one round-trip only)
The Premier, Speaker, Leader of the Opposition, and Ministers do not receive the above mileage reimbursement. In lieu of mileage and based on the Executive Council Vehicle Policy they may choose between:
the use of a government-owned and leased vehicle, with maintenance, fuel, registration and insurance covered; or
an allowance of $775/month (taxable) plus mileage at half the rates provided in Treasury Board Policy 17.02 for the use of their own vehicle.
All claims made by a member for a transportation reimbursement should be submitted on the Assembly's approved claim form. The form is available from Bridgett MacCormac, Administrative Officer, and should be returned to her when completed.
Note: The Treasury Board Policy & Procedures Manual is available on government's Internal Information Service website.
