In sync with this, Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre is poised to witness an augmentation in his fundamental remuneration as a Member of Parliament, coupled with an increment as the leader of the opposition, catapulting his annual earnings to $299,900.

As of April 1, the basic compensation for parliamentarians will surge to $203,100 per annum, up from $194,600, as per the pronouncement by the Office of the Speaker of the House of Commons. This adjustment reflects a rise of $8,500, equating to a 4.3 percent increase.

In correspondence with Global News, the office delineated that salaries undergo annual revisions on April 1, hinged upon “the index of the average percentage increase in base-rate wages for a calendar year in Canada resulting from major settlements negotiated in the private sector (4.4 percent in 2023).”

Justin Trudeau's parliamentary stipend will align with this figure, alongside an escalation in his supplementary compensation as the prime minister, elevating it to $203,100 from $194,600. Consequently, this results in a $17,000 augmentation from his 2023 aggregate of $389,200, thus culminating in a total remuneration of $406,200 as of April 1.

Likewise, the top-up compensation for the Speaker of the House of Commons will surge to $96,800 from $92,800, mirroring the identical increment extended to the Government House Leader, ministers, as well as ministers of state, in addition to their fundamental parliamentary salaries.

Leaders of various political factions within the House of Commons will witness an uptick in their supplementary compensations, with increments ranging from $68,600 to $19,600, depending on their respective roles. Additionally, chairs and vice-chairs of standing committees are set to receive augmented compensations of $13,800 and $6,800, respectively, reflecting an increase from their previous earnings.

These revisions in remuneration coincide with the same date earmarked for an escalation in the carbon pricing mechanism, a development that has elicited opposition from federal Conservatives and provincial premiers across the political spectrum.
