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.
