Legislative Assembly Office Compensation Disclosure

The Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act requires government agencies, boards and commissions and other public-sector bodies to annually disclose compensation information for employees earning over a specified threshold and for all members, as defined in the Act, regardless of the amount earned. Commonly referred to as the sunshine list, the Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act came into force on December 11, 2015.

As a public-sector body the Legislative Assembly Office (LAO) discloses a list of employees whose total compensation is over the following thresholds during the appropriate year:


Under the Act the LAO includes the individual’s position, compensation, other benefits and severance in its disclosure. Total compensation includes base salary, overtime, bonuses and taxable benefits. This category essentially reflects the income amount on the person’s T4.

Nonmonetary (other) benefits are generally nontaxable benefits, including the employer’s portion of pension contributions, employment insurance, Canada Pension Plan and Workers' Compensation Board premiums.

Severance reflects amounts paid or payable related to the termination of employment, including a retiring allowance.
