Executive Compensation Program

The Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance is compliant to the legislative requirements set by the Government of Ontario.  

The Government has introduced new requirements for Broader Public Sector Employers to meet when establishing executive compensation programs.  These requirements are included in the Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Act and its Executive Compensation Framework Regulation.

As an Ontario Public Sector employer, the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA) Board of Directors has developed an Executive Compensation Program with consideration of the need to attract and retain the very best leaders possible in order to deliver high quality patient care while managing responsibly. The HPHA’s Executive Compensation Program applies to “designated executives” which include the:

·        President & Chief Executive Officer

·        Vice-President, People and Chief Quality Executive

·        Vice-President, Partnerships and Chief Nursing Officer

·        Vice-President, Performance and Chief Financial Executive

·        Chief of Staff

The HPHA’s Executive Compensation Program adheres to several requirements, including the following:

  • Salary and performance-related pay is capped at no more than the 50th percentile of appropriate comparators;
  • The rate of increase to the executive salary and performance related-pay envelope is capped at the maximum rate of increase approved by the overseeing minister;
  • Designated employers must obtain approval from their overseeing minister on the comparator organizations used to determine salary and performance-related pay caps and the maximum rate of increase that could be applied when determining their executive salary and performance-related pay envelope;
  • Certain compensation elements, such as signing bonuses and pay in lieu of perquisites, are prohibited; and
  • Designated employers must engage in public consultation to enhance the understanding and transparency of their executive compensation decisions.

The HPHA’s proposed Executive Compensation Program was approved by the HPHA Board of Directors, and submitted to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) in the Fall of 2017 with the comparator hospitals as supporting evidence.  The proposed Program was approved by the MOHLTC on January 17, 2018 to be posted on the HPHA website for the required 30-day consultation period to receive community feedback.  There was no public feedback received on our proposed program and the Executive Compensation Plan was resubmitted to the Ministry on February 22, 2018 with the MOHLTC providing the final approval on February 27, 2018.
