Here’s how much money Montreal mayoral candidates made in 2020

In light of the recent drama surrounding income tax returns and income tax returns during the election of the mayor of Montreal, we thought it would be good to compare exactly how much money Valérie Plante and Denis Coderre made the last year.

The two candidates have done quite well despite the fact that we are in the midst of a pandemic.

Denis coderre

Coderre was under scrutiny for refusing to release tax returns. He was adamant about not revealing his income and clients until after winning the election, but backed down on Wednesday, November 3.

On his public LinkedIn page, we can see that Coderre held several jobs after his loss in the 2017 election, including at Stingray Musique, the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal.

Several outlets reported that the former mayor and leader of Ensemble Montreal had pre-tax income totaling $ 458,263 in 2020.

Not too bad!

Valerie Plante

Plante, for her part, defended the “transparency” of her income and tax returns. MTL Blog contacted the Projet Montréal team and they sent us Plante’s 2017 tax returns.

In 2020, the outgoing mayor reported gross income of $ 184,297.49.

His earnings in previous years were similar, never falling below the $ 100,000 mark.

Balarama Holiness

Holness did not respond to MTL Blog’s inquiries about his past earnings.

Plante and Coderre are both well above the median after-tax income of the average person living in Quebec. According to the latest Statistics Canada, the average income of a person living in Quebec in 2019 was $ 55,600.
