On Dec. 11, 2015, the Alberta government’s Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act (2015) came into effect. The act applies to all public sector agencies, boards and commissions governed by the Alberta Public Agencies Governance Act. This Act requires that the University of Calgary disclose the name, position, compensation, non-monetary benefits and severance for all employees whose total 2016 earnings plus severance exceeds a threshold of $126,375. There is no threshold for Board of Governors members; any remuneration paid by the university to a member must be disclosed. Legislation ensures that disclosure under the Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act is permitted by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP).
The University of Calgary is committed to keeping affected employees informed and supported through this process.
All affected employees will receive notification of their inclusion on the compensation disclosure list, and the process to request an exemption. You can also review your earnings from your 2016 T4 slips to determine if you will be on the disclosure list. If your total earnings plus severance exceeds $126,375, your compensation may be disclosed under the requirements of this Act.
