Public sector bodies are now required to post online the names and compensation paid to:
- all board members
- employees who earn over $125,000
This is a requirement under the Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act, which applies to:
- agencies, boards and commissions (0.1 MB) governed by the Alberta Public Agencies Governance Act
- independent offices of the Legislature
- employees of Covenant Health
Public sector bodies are required to publish the compensation information on their own web pages or, in some cases, on the website of the government department that oversees them. To find the consolidated information from all public sector bodies, click the green button below. Beneath the green button are links to each separate disclosure page. Information on each agency, board or commission will be added to the grid (and links to each disclosure page will be added below) as the pages go live to the public. There may be a brief delay in this process. If you are looking for information belonging to a particular agency, board or commission that does not yet appear here, please check that organization’s website or the website of the government department that oversees it.
- Compensation includes base salary, overtime, bonuses, honorariums paid to board members and taxable benefits. This category essentially reflects the income amount on the person’s T4
- Severance reflects amounts paid or payable in relation to termination of employment, including retiring allowance.
- Non-monetary (other) benefits are generally non-taxable benefits including the employer’s portion of pension contributions, employment insurance, CPP and WCB premiums.
Employees may apply to be exempted from having their compensation disclosed only if this could unduly threaten their safety. There are no other grounds for granting exemptions.
