51. For pension purposes, the pensionable salary of an officer is the basic salary paid to him in the course of one calendar year, the basic salary to which he would have been entitled during a period of absence in respect of which salary insurance applies and, in the case of a female officer, the basic salary to which she would have been entitled if she had not taken maternity leave.
In the case of an adoption leave, the pensionable salary is the basic salary the officer would have been entitled to receive for the period during which the officer receives benefits, or would receive benefits if the officer had applied for them, under the Québec parental insurance plan established under the Act respecting parental insurance (chapter A-29.011) or the employment insurance plan established under the Employment Insurance Act (Statutes of Canada, 1996, chapter 23).
Unless included by government regulation, bonuses, allowances, compensations or other additional remuneration are not included in the basic salary.
