According to the National Post’s report, MPs who have served the country for less than six years are not eligible for pensions, and therefore receive a lump pay out, worth approximately half of their annual salary.

For those who have worked for the government for more than six years, but are under 55 years old, they will also receive a healthy severance package, as well as a deferred pension.

The average salary for 2019 federal MPs is $178,900, meaning that their severance pay out is likely to be around $90,000, more than most Canadians make each year!

For MPs that hold higher positions, the payout is even better. For example, if a losing MP was also a parliamentary secretary, they could receive an additional $9,000 in severance, with the potential to earn even more for additional service.

After the last federal election in 2015, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation estimated that a total of $11 million was spent in severance packages and payments, all paid out to retiring and defeated MPs.

After such a difficult and sometimes nasty election, it seems that four years off and $90,000 is a pretty good consolation prize!
