Governance and Accountability

The House of Assembly Management Commission governs all financial and administrative matters for the House of Assembly, its offices and staff.

To remain financially accountable to Nova Scotians, Members of the House of Assembly are required to disclose their personal financial interests in annual disclosure statements and file monthly expense reports for constituency, living, and travel expenses, which are posted publicly.

Members receive compensation for their work, which includes legislative, constituency, and caucus duties. When they retire, eligible members receive a pension under the Members of the Legislative Assembly Plan.

To ensure that all members elected to the House of Assembly are accessible to Nova Scotians, members’ constituency offices are barrier-free.
