The York Regional Police Association has confirmed a four-year contract with the police after months of difficult negotiations that required the convening of a mediator. York Regional Police offers members one of the most competitive compensation packages among Canadian police services. Members are also entitled to annual leave for leave that gradually increases with years of service. The following data reflect rates of pay as of June 1, 2020. The police administration is facing an increase in police maintenance costs. In 2015, 1,072 officers, or about 70 per cent of York`s uniformed force, were on the provincial sun permit list. Currently, 30 cents of every dollar of tax paid by the vice-presidents in the York region goes to the police. Among the benefits of members is the extension of health care. The extension of health care includes, among other things, other benefits: coverage is extended to partners and relatives and begins on the first day of employment. Civilian employees and uniformed officers have been out of contract since December 31. The new contract provides for an annual increase of almost 2% over the duration of the contract and increases on health services such as psychological services and chiropractic.
