PCs say executive salaries in CCACs are too high
0 0

You may have had to deal with a Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) to help you get home-care for an aging parent or grandparent who needs it.

The Tories are saying the taxpayer funded initiative has too much money going to executive salaries and they want the Auditor General to investigate.

Deputy Progressive Conservative leader Christine Elliott says the average CEO salary in the province's CCACs is $234,000 compared to the $20,000 that frontline workers often make.

Elliott says 40 per cent of CCAC budgets don't go to frontline services but to administration costs instead.

Health Minister Deb Matthews says the province is trying to change skyrocketing executive salaries, pointing to legislation Ontario has in the works.

Matthews adds she is pushing for frontline workers salaries to go up.
