Flow of Government Funding for Management and Excluded Wages and Other Increases

Following the conclusion of 2022 collective bargaining, the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction issued a letter to CSSEA employers dated February 6th that committed to providing the same funding increases for management compensation as union and non-union employees. Government has indicated that this will be implemented as a base 17.04% funding lift for compensation over the three-year mandate. In addition, government will make available up to $35.77 million in targeted funding for the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, increased vehicle mileage reimbursement rates, and wage comparability adjustments for paraprofessionals in the Social Services Sector.

Government’s funding commitment is based on total compensation for provincially funded services, as reported by members through CSSEA’s 2022 Compensation and Employee Turnover Report. To ensure each agency receives appropriate funding increases across different provincial funding programs and sources, the funders have requested access to agency-level reported compensation data, something CSSEA has not provided in the past. Government has indicated that access to agency-level data is necessary for funders to provide funding for paraprofessional wage comparability and management increases.

To assist government in providing accurate and timely funding and to simplify the reporting, CSSEA is providing the option for agencies to voluntarily provide a written authorization (similar to what agencies that receive funding from the Ministry of Health already do) for CSSEA to share their agency-level data with their provincial funders. To do this, members are asked to fill out this Authorization Form, which will provide us with the necessary permission to release your agency’s total compensation cost, FTE and employee count by classification, reported funding, and costing for funding increases for each of your respective provincial government funders.

In addition, to ensure the reported data to funders is as accurate as possible and reflects the current staffing at your agency, it is important that your agency complete the 2023 CSSEA Compensation and Employee Turnover Report as soon as possible, particularly if your agency experienced significant expansion or has new or expanded programs. If you did not complete the 2022 Compensation and Employee Turnover Report, it becomes even more important that you complete the 2023 Compensation and Employee Turnover Report at your earliest opportunity. If you require assistance, please register to attend one of the ongoing report orientation sessions and/or e-mail your questions to: This email address is being protected from spambots.
