Executive Compensation Framework & Public Consultation

The Government of Ontario introduced the Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Act, which outlines a new framework for determining executive compensation in colleges, universities, hospitals, agencies, and other parts of the broader public sector. As part of that process, we are posting the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital (PSFDH) draft executive compensation program for the public to receive comments and views. Note that the new framework was introduced after an extended period of 8 years during which broader public sector executive wages had been frozen.

The PSFDH Board of Directors developed the draft Executive Compensation Program with the goal of attracting and retaining the best possible leaders so that we are able to continue to provide our high standard of patient care.  Our Board continues to support and encourage a fair and balanced approach to all public-sector compensation and we value your feedback.

As required, the public consultation period will last 30 days, closing on 3:00 p.m., March 9, 2018. Please send your comments to

Feedback will be reviewed and considered by the Board prior to submitting the final version of the executive compensation program. A summary of the public input will also be forwarded to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The final Executive Compensation Program will be posted on PSFDH’s website following the approval process.

Thank you for your interest.

Donna Howard, Chair, Board of Directors
