Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act
On April 27, 2016 the Government of Alberta instituted the Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act. The Act requires that public sector bodies, including the Alberta Energy Regulator, disclose the names, position, earnings, non-monetary benefits and severance for all current and former employees whose total 2015 earnings were more than $125 000.
The Compensation field below displays the employee’s total earnings and is NOT base salary. Earnings take into account many other factors (e.g., overtime, annual hours worked, vacation cash out, and other monetary awards). Under the Act, names and compensation paid to all board members must also be posted.
How the AER is funded
The AER is not funded by public tax dollars; the AER is funded entirely by industry.
The AER is funded entirely by industry. This is a model used by other regulatory agencies throughout North America, such as the Alberta Utilities Commission and the BC Oil & Gas Commission. Once the AER’s budget is approved by the Government of Alberta, the amount is collected by the AER through an administrative fee. Regardless of the funding model, industry is held accountable for its actions and shares responsibility of ensuring sustainable energy development.
More detailed information about the legislation and its potential impact is available on the Alberta Justice and Solicitor General website. As more information is provided by the Government of Alberta, this website will be updated.
