Catherine Tait, the President and CEO of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, lives with her husband in a $5.4M (CAD) brownstone that she owns in the Boerum Hill neighbourhood of Brooklyn, New York, and has been travelling back and forth between the United States and her residence in Ottawa throughout the pandemic, Canadaland has learned.
Government appointment records list Brooklyn as Tait’s residence and put her salary within the range of $390,300 to $459,100 per year. According to CBC spokesperson Chuck Thompson, Tait moved to Ottawa when her term began in July 2018, and began splitting her time between her two homes in late March, after the pandemic began.
