Public Sector Salary Disclosure

The Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act, 1996 makes Ontario’s public sector more open and accountable to taxpayers. The act requires organizations that receive public funding from the Province of Ontario to disclose annually the names, positions, salaries and total taxable benefits of employees paid $100,000 or more in a calendar year.

The act applies to organizations such as the Government of Ontario, Crown Agencies, Municipalities, Hospitals, Boards of Public Health, School Boards, Universities, Colleges, Hydro One, Ontario Power Generation, and other public sector employers who receive a significant level of funding from the provincial government.

Executive Compensation

The intent of the Public Sector Accountability Act (BPSAA) and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) is that public organizations spending taxpayer dollars must be transparent and open to scrutiny – a belief that is endorsed by SAH, our management team and Board of Directors. Public disclosure of our executive team’s compensation adds a new dimension of transparency already in place at SAH.

Disclosure of Expenses

SAH is committed to being open and transparent with its stakeholders and the general public.  Further to this commitment is our compliance with the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act 2010.  This act was implemented to strengthen and reinforce accountability, transparency and oversight of government expense claims.

Every hospital must post information about expense claims made by the following individuals:

  • Board members
  • President & CEO
  • Senior managers reporting directly to the CEO
  • Chief Operating Officer
  • Senior managers reporting directly to the COO

As per direction received from the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, SAH has created this summary which details the expense reports of Board Members and Senior Staff.
