Compensation Disclosure

Alberta Health Services is committed to transparency and has complied with legislation to disclose compensation for employees receiving over the 2016 threshold amount of $126,375 in compensation as outlined in the Public Sector Compensation Transparency Act. The threshold for the previous disclosure, reflecting compensation for 2015, was $125,000.

The compensation information released is total annual compensation, which includes base salary, overtime, shift premiums, weekend premiums, on-call pay, sick pay, vacation pay, benefits and relevant severance. This disclosure also includes AHS board members, regardless of the amount of compensation, severance or benefits they have received in the past year.

AHS is a large organization — the largest health care organization in the country. The AHS disclosure list includes approximately 2.3 per cent of AHS staff, or about 2,400 employees. Approximately 45 per cent of this group is unionized staff, including registered nurses, paramedics, technicians, psychologists, mental health therapists and pharmacists, among others. 55 per cent is non-union staff, including senior leaders, unit managers, clinical leads, pathologists, dentists, physicians, nurse practitioners, lab scientists and medical leaders.

AHS regularly posts expenses of the AHS executive team and board on the external website. AHS executive team and board salaries and total severance information are also disclosed as part of our annual audited AHS consolidated financial statements.

This page was last modified on June 27, 2017 to include the 2016 compensation disclosure.

University of Alberta Secondments

Dr. Verna Yiu (President and CEO) served as interim President & Chief Executive Officer from January 1, 2016 to June 2, 2016. During this time she was seconded from the University of Alberta and paid through University of Alberta payroll. Dr. Yiu was appointed AHS’ President & Chief Executive Officer on June 3, 2016 and was an employee of AHS from that point onward. As the appointment occurred part way through the year, Dr. Yiu has been included in both AHS’ and the University of Alberta’s required disclosures. These are not duplicate disclosures and are cumulative. More

Kathryn Todd (Vice President, Research, Innovation, and Analytics) was not an employee of AHS in 2016, but was seconded from the University of Alberta. She has been included as part of both AHS’ and the University of Alberta’s required disclosures in the interest of transparency. This is a duplicate disclosure by both organizations for the same compensation and is not cumulative. It should also be noted that not all compensation listed is attributable to her duties at AHS, as she also performed duties for the University of Alberta during this period.

Annual Audited Consolidated Financial Statements

Please note: there will be variances between the Annual Audited Consolidated Financial Statements and what is included in the compensation disclosure, as the financial statements are based on the fiscal year (Apr 1 – Mar 31), while the compensation disclosure is calculated on the calendar year (Jan 1 – Dec 31) and/or when compensation is paid.
