Western’s Executive Compensation Framework

For the past seven years, executive salaries across the broader public sector, including those at Ontario’s 21 universities, have been frozen by the provincial government. Since 2015, the province has been working with broader public sector employees to draft a new executive compensation program and includes Western’s President, Provost, and three Vice-Presidents. For Western, this new compensation framework will shape the University’s ability to attract and retain the outstanding leadership we require to achieve excellence on the world stage.

Western University posted its draft framework for a 30-day public consultation period as required by the Government. This period has ended on May 25, 2018, and Western’s Senior Policy and Operations Committee of the Board will consider the feedback in finalizing their submission to the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. Final approval of the framework rests with the provincial government.
