[La version française suit le texte anglais.] 


TORONTO, September 27, 2022 – On Wednesday, September 28, 2022, the Financial Accountability Office of Ontario (FAO) will release a report that provides an overview of public sector employment in Ontario, discusses upcoming collective bargaining negotiations and the application of wage restraint under Bill 124, projects provincial spending on employee compensation over the next five years, and identifies three key risks to this projection: inflation, the court challenge to Bill 124 and staffing shortages.

The report will be posted on the FAO website at 9:00 a.m.

The FAO will provide a background briefing for accredited media at 10:00 a.m. in the media studio at the Ontario Legislature. At the media briefing, senior officials from the FAO will provide a brief presentation and answer questions on a not-for-attribution basis.  

Ontario’s Financial Accountability Officer, Peter Weltman, will be available for “on-the-record” media questions immediately following the background briefing.
