Sunshine list ‘loophole’ fixed
London Community News
Ontario Finance Minister Dwight Duncan says an “oversight” in the Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act has been fixed.
“Because of the oversight, directors or office holders subject to the Act who received over $100,000 in the calendar year in per diems and/or other retainers were omitted from the Sunshine List,” he said in a news release.
A new regulation has amended the definition of “salary” in the Act to include specific forms of remuneration, namely per diems and retainers, received by appointees. It comes into effect Jan. 1.
The names, job titles and remuneration of these appointees will now be disclosed in the annual Sunshine List.
