Executive Compensation – Public Consultation

Update: The online feedback form for public consultation on the TDSB’s local Executive Compensation Program is now closed. Please read the Summary of Public Feedback for more information.

At the Board Meeting on December 13, Trustees voted to submit the TDSB’s local Executive Compensation Program and the Summary of Public Feedback to the Ministry of Education for final approval. Upon final Ministry approval, the Executive Compensation Program must then be approved for adoption by TDSB Trustees prior to implementation.

The Government of Ontario’s Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Act, 2014 requires employers, including school boards, to develop Executive Compensation Programs to ensure a responsible, transparent and consistent approach to managing executive salaries.

An Executive Compensation Framework for use by all 72 Ontario Public School Boards to comply with this legislation was developed by an Executive Compensation Steering Committee.

The framework, approved by the Ministry of Education and Treasury Board Secretariat, meets the intents and goals of the legislation to ensure responsible and transparent executive compensation management in the education sector.

TDSB’s Local Executive Compensation Program

Using the approved framework and in consultation with the Government of Ontario, the TDSB developed our proposed Executive Compensation Program.  

Student achievement and success is a critical public service that requires innovative leadership. The TDSB has a 3 billion dollar operating budget, employs approximately 41,400 staff, and serves more than 246,000 students. The compensation program is designed to attract and retain experienced and talented executives who are able to effectively lead an organization of our size in a responsible and innovative way. 

Similarly, as Ontario’s largest school board, serving the province’s most culturally and linguistically diverse student and parent population, we face significant issues related to urban education that are not a reality for other school boards across the province. This makes it even more imperative that we attract and retain executives who have proven experience and knowledge in this area. 

When compared to other large organizations in the City of Toronto, such as Hospitals and Colleges and Universities, the TDSB’s executive compensation rates are significantly lower. Other than changes to portfolios and responsibilities, TDSB superintendent grids and executive salaries have been frozen since March 2012. 

Public Consultation

We will be conducting an online public consultation on our proposed Executive Compensation Program from November 13 to December 12, 2017. Please review the TDSB’s proposed Executive Compensation Program and complete the feedback form. We will be accepting public feedback until December 12, 2017

Share your feedback on the TDSB's proposed Executive Compensation Program.

  • Complete the online feedback form until December 12, 2017.
  • Delegate in person before Trustees at a meeting at 5050 Yonge Street, Boardroom on Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 5 p.m. Email to sign up.

Following the online and public consultation and review of the input, a summary of the public feedback and any changes to our Program will be submitted to the Ministry of Education for final approval. Upon final Ministry approval, the Program must then be approved for adoption by our Board of Trustees prior to implementation. We will continue to update this page throughout the process.
