His $40,000 bonus was far ahead of the next highest, $25,353, which went to deputy minister of Education, Kathy Okpik. But even that was lower than the $43,967 bonus Mackey took home the previous year.
CBC requested the bonus pay data through an Access to Information request in February. The information was also requested by a MLA in a written question in the legislature, and the response has now been tabled.
In all, the Nunavut Government paid out nearly $900,000 in performance bonuses to deputy ministers and president of Crown corporations between 2010 and 2013.
A cabinet committee made up of the premier, finance minister and government house leader decides on the bonuses.
