Good For the Goose, Not Apparently for the Gander C. Yvonne Chenier, Q.C
For the last few years all registered Canadian charities have had to list compensation information on Schedule 3 of their T3010 registered charity information return. Not only is the total compensation amount for all employees shown, charities have had to list specific compensation information for the top ten positions in their organization. Using this information, and a bit of simple math, it is easy to see what the executives at Canadian charities are being paid.  What is good for the goose is apparently not good for the gander, if you follow what has recently led to the resignation of an MP from the conservative caucus over this issue.
