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.


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.


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.
