Salaries of Nurses and Teachers
In a statement released last Friday, Prabmeet Sarkaria, the Treasury Board President, shed light on the salaries of nurses and teachers.
He pointed out that the most significant increase in salaries over the past year happened in hospitals and public health boards. They contributed to nearly half of the growth seen in the salary list.
This increase was mainly due to a rise in the number of nurses:
- The addition of nurses accounted for 78% of this sector’s growth.
- This mirrors the government’s continued commitment to enhancing Ontario’s healthcare through substantial investments, including hiring more healthcare professionals.
Sarkaria also mentioned that the number of teachers earning $100,000 or more is at an all-time high, with 65,510 in 2022, up from 29,975 in 2020.

Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act
The Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act, enacted in 1996 by former Progressive Conservative premier Mike Harris, compels organizations that receive public funding from the province to report the names, positions, and pay of people who make more than $100,000.
The act intends to ensure transparency and accountability in the use of public funds and to prevent wasteful and unnecessary spending.
