CTF Posts Sunshine Lists

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has combined and posted to the internet the 12 Ontario Sunshine Reports that have been issued since its launch.

The reports are now in a downloadable and searchable excel file and may be found HERE.

The Ontario Sunshine Report is an annual release of all Ontario civil servants earning in excess of $100,000. It includes provincial and municipal employees, crown corporations, hospitals, boards and agencies.

Anyone who is interested in searching for a favourite bureaucrat or is undertaking research comparisons of the data now has access to the full time series in an easy to use file. The Data Sort function of Excel makes the data easy to pull apart.

As the file is 21 MB it takes a minute to open and download.

It shows that this year the list has grown by 27% with one employee, for the first time ever, breaking the $2 million barrier.

Employees on the list enter an elite club of income earners in Ontario as only the top 5% of income earners make $100,000.
