Clinic Compensation Funding Framework
Tuesday, February 5, 2013
Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) has approved a Clinic Compensation Funding Framework (CCFF) as well as a compensation increase for eligible clinics for fiscal year 2012/13.
The CCFF explains how LAO will provide compensation funding for clinics.
LAO’s board developed this framework after province-wide consultations with clinics throughout Ontario and with support and analysis from Mercer, a well known global consulting firm with compensation expertise.
Compensation increase for 2012/13
The LAO board also approved a compensation increase for eligible clinics for 2012/13 of two per cent, retroactive to April 1, 2012, plus a one per cent pay equity for the 2013 calendar year. The compensation funding increase will flow through the new CCFF.
This latest increase fulfills the provincial government’s commitment under the New Investment Funding Program to improve clinic compensation. With this payment, LAO has provided clinics with all the funding earmarked for compensation increases under this program. Compensation funding for eligible clinics has increased by 16.75% since March 2010 through the New Investment Funding Program.
