Broader Public Sector accountability resources
The Ottawa Catholic School Board is proud to provide the public with information about how we run our publicly funded organization through our Broader Public Sector (BPS) accountability resources. As a Broader Public Sector (BPS) organization, we are required to publish online business plans and other business or financial documents. This supports the Government of Ontario’s mandate for openness and transparency. The Government of Ontario’s Management Board of Cabinet has issued this directive under the authority of the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act, 2010 (Part V.1 – Business Plans). This directive requires us to publish our business plans and financial documents on one webpage for easy reference.
Moving forward with our priorities and strategic plan
Our mission is to provide all our students with a well-rounded education for the mind, body and spirit through an emphasis on academic excellence, social responsibility and Catholic values. Our Board Priorities focus on three core elements, which have remained consistent over several years: Success for Students; Success for Staff; and Stewardship of Resources. Our Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP) provides vision for the Board by establishing strategic direction, with an emphasis on student achievement. Operational plans, such as the Board Innovation Plan for Student Achievement and Wellness (BIPSAW), flow out of the MYSP. These documents outline our priorities and goals for performance measures, evidence gathering methods and targets for improvement.
Sharing our balanced operating budget
The budget for the Ottawa Catholic School Board’s 2017-2018 fiscal year was approved and adopted by the Board of Trustees at its meeting of June 13, 2017. Our 2017-2018 Budget Summary presents the Board’s financial and operations plan, and all necessary disclosures. The 2017 Audited Financial Statements are designed to provide assurance that financial transactions are properly authorized and recorded in compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements.

Approved Executive Compensation Program
In 2014, the Government of Ontario began the process of developing public sector compensation frameworks to ensure a transparent and consistent approach to executive compensation. This applies to all Ontario public sector designated employers, such as universities, colleges, hospitals and school boards, including the Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB).
In the education sector, a competitive, fair, and responsible Executive Compensation Program is vital for attracting and retaining the talented, innovative leadership required to ensure continued progress and success in advancing student achievement for all. The OCSB’s approved Executive Compensation Program balances the need to manage compensation costs and the need to attract and retain the executive talent we seek.
In consultation with the Government of Ontario, the OCSB developed its proposed Executive Compensation Program which met the requirements of the Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Act. As part of the Government Regulations, all Ontario broader public sector organizations conducted a 30-day public consultation which invited the public to provide feedback on the proposed program. The Executive Compensation Program has been approved by the Board of Trustees and the Ministry of Education and is now available for viewing. View the Executive Compensation Program.
