Foreign Service Directives Post Indexes - ARCHIVED

Tables: 62F0082X


These Indexes are calculated to establish and adjust Post Living Allowances paid to expatriate Canadian government employees serving under the terms and conditions of the Foreign Service Directives (FSDs). They are comparative measurements that numerically express the difference between the retail prices of a representative basket of goods and services at a foreign location with prices for a similar basket of goods and services in Ottawa. They reflect the circumstances for personnel who may have access to certain goods and services that are free of duties or taxes or to stores or sources of supply that are not available to the general public. Where employees do not have, either directly or indirectly, duty free purchasing privileges, Departmental administrators must consult with Statistics Canada to calculate an additional index to reflect the specific circumstances in effect at that post.
