Education Act Regulatory Amendment Filed (Honoraria)
Date: April 25, 2012
On April 18, 2012, the Ontario government filed an amendment to O. Reg. 357/06 under the Education Act (Honoraria for Board Members).
O. Reg. 57/12 adds a new Part II (Rules For The Period From April 1, 2012 To March 31, 2014), imposing a temporary limit on honoraria for a chair, vice-chair or other member of a district school board. Specifically, an honorarium “shall not exceed the maximum amount that was payable to a member with that office during the period in which the restraint measures under sections 7 to 11 of the Public Sector Compensation Restraint to Protect Public Services Act, 2010 applied.”
The amendment is now in force.
