Council Remuneration Advisory Group

The District of Tofino supports the practice of reviewing council member remuneration at the end of each Council term. Further, Council endorses the idea of an independent group of citizens reviewing remuneration to make a recommendation to Council. The Council Remuneration Advisory Group is tasked with this review and reporting its findings to Council. The Terms of Reference for the group is available by clicking here.

The purpose of the Advisory Group is to consider the appropriate level of compensation for service on Council as Mayor or as a councillor, and to make recommendations to Council to be considered for implementation during the following Council term. 


The Advisory Group will consist of three members:

  • One person who has previously served on Council in the District of Tofino;
  • One person who is a business owner within the District of Tofino;
  • One member at large who resides within the District of Tofino.

Persons who are considering seeking election in the next general municipal election shall not be eligible to be members of the Advisory Group.

The District's Chief Administrative Officer and Director of Financial Services serve as non-voting staff resources to the Advisory Group.

Members will be appointed for the duration of the remuneration review process, expected to last two to three months with report out to Council no later than September 10, 2018, at which point the advisory group will dissolve.

Meetings are not open to the public, agendas and minutes are available upon request to the Chief Administrative Officer.
