The salaries of Vancouver City Councillors that originate from Metro Vancouver were released as part of Metro’s 2020 Statement of Financial Information package. In addition to salaries paid out by the City of Vancouver, members of Council also receive pay for their time spent on Metro Vancouver Board Meetings and Committees. To give a clearer picture of the remuneration of Vancouver City Councillors, we’ve added the salaries from these two sources together in the chart below. It’s worth noting that 9 out of 10 Vancouver City Councillors earned over $100,000 in 2020 from these two income sources.
Kennedy Stewart also received a salary from TransLink for his time spent on the Mayor’s Council. While this information is not yet available for 2020, Stewart’s remuneration from TransLink in 2019 was $8,865.
The ‘sunshine list’ of Metro Vancouver employees earning over $75,000 was also released. Jerry Dobrovolny (former CoV General Manager of Engineering Services) clocked in with $360,269 in salary, $23,620 in taxable benefits and $2,084 in expenses. Metro Vancouver paid out $168,515,101 in salaries in 2020, and of course Vancouver residents pay part of this total in tax bills and other fees.
Metro also paid out $1,156,693,262 to Canadian suppliers. We’ve noted a few here:
