Each year, since the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act was passed in 1996, the Ontario Government has published a compendium on public sector employees who earn $100,000 or more. Organizations that receive public funding from the Province 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.
All organizations that are covered by this Act must make the list available on their premises, in a place where any member of the public can easily see and review it. The list must be available for inspection without charge between March 31 and December 31 of the year it is disclosed.
Working in partnership with our Finance Department our submission was forwarded to the Province as required.
In keeping with the legislative requirements of the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act, a list of North York General employees paid $100,000 or more in 2012 (salary and benefits reported to Revenue Canada for 2012 T4 statements issued by the hospital) is available in the Corporate Communications and Public Affairs office, or by contacting Marcelo Gomez-Wiuckstern at Marcelogw@nygh.on.ca
A compendium of the list of all organizations is also available on the Ministry of Finance website as of March 31, 2013 at http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/publications/salarydisclosure/2013.
