Are Public Sector Workers better off in Alberta than in other provinces?

The September 3, 2019 release of the Report and Recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Alberta’s Finances (the MacKinnon report) argues that both the size and compensation of Alberta’s public sector are higher than comparator provinces, and suggests that the government could reduce the size of the public sector (through employee attrition), consider alternative delivery of government programs and services (through the private and non-for-profit sectors), and recommends that the government establishes a legislative mandate that sets the salary levels for all public sector employees.

Are Ethics, Integrity and Democracy Alive and Well in the Canadian Public Service?

Democracy is for all intentional purposes based on mutual respect, which means free and fair elections, human rights, and ethical government.
