Aside from declining to publish the size of its workforce in its annual budgets, the Yukon also doesn’t publish an annual “sunshine list”.
That would reveal the names, job titles and salaries of employees earning $100,000 annually or more.
Alberta and Ontario both have public sunshine lists.
Newfoundland and Labrador’s Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act does not protect the names and salaries of public employees earning six figures.
The Telegram newspaper posted that province’s 2016 “sunshine list” to its website.
The Yukon’s Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act prevents the publication of names along with titles and salaries, said Nigel Allan, a spokesperson for the Public Service Commission.
The commission could confirm however, that last fiscal year, a total of 949 Yukon government employees earned $100,000 or more, which is down from 1,010 in 2015-16.
The commission is also permitted to disclose pay ranges.
In July, there were 16 government employees – all deputy ministers – earning between $172,851 and $231,238, the government’s top salary bracket.
