Marginal note:Adjustment calculations — subparagraph 1(b)(ii) and paragraph 2(b) of schedule
  •  (1) Subject to subsection (2), when the fee set out in subparagraph 1(b)(i) of the schedule is adjusted for a given fiscal year, the following adjustments are also made for that fiscal year:

    • (a) the fee set out in subparagraph 1(b)(ii) of the schedule is adjusted to an amount representing 70% of the fee set out in subparagraph 1(b)(i) of the schedule as adjusted in accordance with section 6; and

    • (b) the fee set out in paragraph 2(b) of the schedule is adjusted to an amount representing 60% of the fee set out in subparagraph 1(b)(ii) of the schedule as adjusted in accordance with paragraph (a).

  • Marginal note:Rounding up

    (2) If an adjustment calculation results in a fee that includes a fraction of a dollar, the resulting fee is to be rounded up to the nearest dollar.

Marginal note:Interpretation

 For the purpose of sections 4 to 7, the fees set out in subparagraphs 1(a)(i) and (b)(i) of the schedule are the fees set out in those provisions as previously adjusted, as applicable, in accordance with these Regulations.

Marginal note:Constant Dollars

 For the purposes of subsections 4(2) and 6(2), the amount of the external cost, in constant dollars, for a given fiscal year, is determined by the following formula:

A × 1.02–B

where

A
is the amount of the external cost, in current dollars; and
B
is the difference in the number of years between
  • (a) the reference year and the base year, in the case of elements A and F of the formulas set out in subsections 4(2) and 6(2); or

  • (b) the year preceding the reference year and the base year, in the case of elements C and H of the formulas set out in those subsections.

Marginal note:Same fees

 For greater certainty, if a fee adjustment is made in accordance with these Regulations, the fees for a subsequent fiscal year in respect of which no adjustment is made remain the fees resulting from the last adjustment.

Remission

Marginal note:Remission
  •  (1) Subject to subsection (2), a fee paid by a person for a service set out in paragraph 7(a) or (b) or item 8 of the schedule is to be remitted by the Minister to the person if the reason for travelling is the serious illness of the person or another individual, or the death of the other individual.

  • Marginal note:Other conditions

    (2) The remission is to be given if the person

    • (a) makes a written request to the Minister for the remission within 180 days after the service is performed;

    • (b) provides a written statement to the Minister to the effect that

      • (i) the reason for the trip is their own serious illness or the serious illness or death of another individual, and

      • (ii) if the reason for the trip is the serious illness or death of another individual, the person has or has had a relationship with that individual; and
