Compensation Disclosure

The Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act requires public sector bodies to publicly disclose compensation and severance provided to an employee if it is more than the threshold in a calendar year, as adjusted according to the Act. In addition, other non-monetary employer-paid benefits and pension are required to be reported.

In 2016, the threshold was $126,375. In 2017, the threshold was $127,765. In 2018, the threshold was $129,809. In 2019, the threshold was $132,924. In 2020, the threshold was $135,317. In 2021, the threshold was $136,805.

The statement of remuneration must be published by June 30 each year for remuneration paid in the previous calendar year. The first posting was required by June 30, 2016 (for the 2015 calendar year), and the information is to be posted for a period of five years.

Any questions about the OIPC's compensation disclosure can be directed to Cara-Lynn Stelmack, FOIP Coordinator, by email, phone (780) 422-6860 or toll-free 1-888-878-4044.
