The Sunshine List

Alberta first started publishing the Sunshine List in 2014 following the 2012 election of Alison Redford.

The salary and severance disclosure, makes Alberta's public sector more open and accountable to taxpayers. The act requires organizations that receive public funding from the Province of Alberta to make public the names, positions, salaries and total taxable benefits of employees paid 136,805 or more in the previous calendar year.

What is disclosed and thresholds

  • Compensation includes base salary, overtime, bonuses, honoraria paid to board members and taxable benefits. This category essentially reflects the income amount on the person’s T4.
  • Severance reflects amounts paid or payable related to termination of employment, including retiring allowance.
  • Non-monetary (other) benefits are generally non-taxable benefits including the employer’s portion of pension contributions, employment insurance, Canada Pension Plan and Workers' Compensation Board premiums.
  • Employment and/or severance contracts for:
    • Designated executives under the Reform of Agencies, Boards and Commissions Compensation Regulation
    • Designated executives under the Reform of Agencies, Boards and Commissions (Post-Secondary Institutions) Compensation Regulation
    • The Chief Executive Officer of Alberta Health Services
    • The Chief Executive Officer of the Alberta Electric System Operator

Employee thresholds

Public sector bodies are required to post online the names and amount of compensation and severance paid to employees who earn more than the threshold amount for that disclosure period.

For December disclosures, if no severance was paid, disclosure is not required.

1 The annual threshold is applied to severance disclosures in December of the current year and to compensation disclosed in June of the following year. For example, the threshold for severances disclosed by December 31, 2021 is $136,805. This is also the threshold for compensation disclosed by June 30, 2022.
