WINNIPEG – He resigned in February of 2015. But he took home the most compensation from the city of Winnipeg that year, by far.
Acting CAO Deepak Joshi was myseteriously suspended from his position in January of 2015 by newly minted mayor Brian Bowman, who said he “lost confidence in him”. Joshi resigned just before his suspension would have ended.
But the city’s 2015 Compensation Disclosure lists him at the top, bringing in $567,339.
The city wouldn’t get into specifics on what Joshi’s compensation included. But compensation can be any combination of things like salary, severance, benefits and more.
Second on the list, COO Michael Jack at $222,251. The Police Chief was number three at $219,324.
Seven of the top ten were with the Winnipeg Police Service. Mayor Brian Bowman came in at 18, bringing in $178,738.
The Public Sector Compensation Disclosure Act requires municipalities to publicly disclose any compensation equal to or in excess of $50,000 each year.
The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority has also released its 2015 compensation report.
Twenty-two emergency room physicians top the list of highest-compensated Winnipeg Regional Health Authority employees.
At the top, Dr. Ronald Scrapneck earned $774,362 in compensation in 2015.
