Employment contract between Hôpital Montfort and its President & CEO

As of January 1, 2012, Ontario’s hospitals have been governed by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). The purpose of this legislative change was to promote a culture of transparency and accountability in public institutions. The Act is retroactive to January 1, 2007.

Out of concern for transparency, hospital members of the Council of Academic Hospitals of Ontario unanimously decided to post the employment contracts of their senior managers and CEOs on their Web sites. The Ontario Hospital Association recommends a proactive approach to posting information and documents likely to become the focus of an access to information request. A document entitled Performance Evaluation Program, explains senior managers' compensation, and is posted on the Web site along with an amended version of the President/CEO’s employment contract and a senior manager contract template.
