Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act
Each year since the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act (PSSDA) was passed in 1996, the Ontario Government has published a compendium on public sector employees who were paid a salary of $100,000 or more. Organizations that receive public funding from the Province of Ontario are required to disclose the names, positions, salaries and taxable benefits of these employees.
PURPOSE OF THE ACT
The purpose of this law is to provide a more open and accountable system of government. It lets taxpayers compare the performance of an organization with the compensation given to the people running it. It also provides taxpayers with more details on how their tax dollars are spent.
PUBLIC ORGANIZATIONS COVERED
The act covers 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 Province. To determine if an organization is covered by the act, contact the organization or the ministry that funds it.
