Members’ Dissolution Guidelines and Information on Indemnities, Allowances, and Services in the 2017 Election Year

Jun 12 2017

These guidelines are provided for Members and staff of the Legislative Assembly of Nunavut. The purpose of this document is to describe the allowances and services which are available to Members in the 2017 election year.

The guidelines also outline the services available from the days on which the 4th Legislative Assembly is dissolved, including the day the writ of election is issued, the polling day and the day the writ of election is returned.

A basic underlying principle of democratic elections is that there must be a level playing field for all candidates. For clarification, an incumbent Member should not have an advantage over other candidates because of access to public funds, or because of his or her status associated with being a Member of the Legislative Assembly.
