ORONTO — Executives from Ontario’s energy agencies are at the top of the list of public sector employees being paid over $100,000 last year.
Tom Mitchell, president and CEO of Ontario Power Generation, is the highest paid at $1.7 million, down slightly from 2011, followed by Hydro One CEO Laura Formusa at $1.04 million.
The so-called sunshine list of workers earning at least $100,000 — which includes doctors, nurses, teachers, police and firefighters in addition to civil servants — increased 11 per cent last year to 88,412. The number has jumped 38 per cent since 2009.
