Ontario’s Ministry of Finance formally released its annual public salary disclosure list today.
The annual dislosure, dubbed the “Sunshine List”, reports the annual salaries above $100,000 for all public employees in the province.
The city included its own list of employees earning over $100,000 at its March 24 council meeting before the ministry’s release, as reported by SooToday.com earlier.
The city staff report revealed that the number of its employees making the sunshine club in 2013 was 124, up from 105 in 2012.
In Ministry of Finance data released today, however, both the Algoma District and Huron-Superior Catholic District school boards showed declines in the total number of its employees making the list.
The ADSB had 85 of its employees on the list for 2013, down from 94 in 2012.
The H-SDSB saw their $100,000 plus earners drop also.
In 2013, there were 44 employees earning above the benchmark, down from a total of 50 the previous year.
That downward trend was reversed, however, at the post-secondary level at both Sault College and Algoma University with substantial increases in the number of their employees earning over $100,000 at both institutions.
Algoma University reported 31 staff on the list for 2013, up from 19 in 2012.
Likewise, Sault College listed 77 staff for 2013, up from 46 in 2012.
Meanwhile, Sault Area Hospital had 50 of its public employees earning over $100,000 in 2013, down from 59 in 2012.
Below are a list of the top three earners at the public institutions above.
The salaries they received in 2012 are provided in brackets.
