Senior executive and senior contractor salaries at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories ~ ATIP request

A 2016 Access to Information request revealed the following information about the salaries of senior executives under the GoCo scheme for operating Canada’s Chalk River Laboratories (and other federal nuclear sites).

***

Nine senior executives were paid an average of

$722,000 per person per year

(including travel)

Most were non-Canadian.

***

Twenty-eight senior contractors were paid an average of

$377,275 per year per person.

27 of the 28 senior contractors were non-Canadian.

The documents obtained trough the ATIP program are as follows:

File 1: Executive and senior contractor files (9 executive salaries + travel) = $722, 000 / yr per person. Senior contractor costs (28 persons) at $377, 275 / yr per person. (For comparison purposes, consider that the salary of the Prime Minister of Canada is $347,400 per year)

File 2. Confirmation that 27 out of 28 senior contractors were non-Canadian. It is not known if any Canadian tax is paid by the non Canadians.

Files 3. CNEA fees ~ CNEA fees are all redacted despite being taxpayer funded and Science Advisory Board, SAB, costs. Typically the CNEA fees would likely be 15-20% of overall contract value per year but there is no way to confirm what these CNEA fees are. Also on p4 of 7 is the Science Advisory Board  cost for one year. ($183,254) where 4 out of 5 members were non-Canadian (advising Canadians on science policy).
