Executive Compensation

Lennox Addington County General Hospital (LACGH) Proposed Executive Compensation Program
In 2010, the Province legislated a two‐year compensation freeze for all non‐unionized employees in the Broader Public Sector (i.e. colleges, universities, hospitals and school boards), which prohibited increases to compensation. In 2012, the Province lifted the compensation freeze for all non‐unionized employees but continued a freeze for designated executives and certain office‐holders. In 2014, the Province approved the Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Act, 2014 (BPSECA) which provides for the establishment of compensation frameworks, as outlined in Ontario Regulation 304/16, and as amended by Ontario Regulation 187/17 (the Regulations), and the Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Program Directive (the Directive). Under the Regulations and the Directive, the LACGH Board of Directors is responsible for:
  • Approving all wage increases to designated executives;
  • Developing an Executive Compensation Program (ECP) that identifies designated executive positions, includes a compensation philosophy, sets salary and performance related caps at no more than the 50th percentile of government approved comparators , establishes a designated executive salary and performance‐related pay envelope and considers other elements of compensation;
  • Submitting the proposed ECP to the Ministry for review and approval by no later than September 29, 2017;
  • Seeking public comment by posting its proposed ECP on its public‐facing website for a minimum of 30 days after receiving government approval to do so;
  • Submitting the summary of the public feedback received and any changes being considered to the ECP to the Ministry;
  • Approving the final ECP and posting it on the LACGH website.

Additionally, it is the responsibility of the Board to ensure that LACGH’s compensation for its designated executives enables us to remain competitive with other organizations in attracting and retaining qualified members of our senior management team who are responsible for facilitating the achievement of LACGH’s mission and vision.

Lennox Addington County General Hospital has complied with the guidelines set out in the Regulations and Directive in the development of the LACGH Board approved ECP and has also received Ministry approval to post the program for public consultation. As part of the consultation phase, we invite members of the community to comment on our proposed Executive Compensation Plan (attached) via e‐mail at ECPConsult@lacgh.napanee.on.ca

What is Freedom of Information (FOI)?

As of January 1, 2012 hospitals in Ontario will be covered for the first time, by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). After that date you have the right to make a request for access to a range of recorded information held by the hospitals, including records of personal information that came into the custody or under the control of a hospital on or after January 1, 2007. Access to one’s own records of personal health information, however, will continue to be governed by the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA).
