For many months, Vancouver Sun data journalist Nathan Griffiths collected and organized publicly available information from dozens of sources, including provincial departments, local governments, Crown companies, school districts, health departments and more. The database also includes the salaries of mayors and council members, many of whom work part-time and earn less than $75,000.

Unlike Ontario, the BC government does not provide this data in a searchable format. The Vancouver Sun has invested significant time and resources in this project to show where your tax dollars are going and to show trends in the highest-paid public employees.

Griffiths and reporter Lori Culbert analyzed the data and conducted additional research that resulted in a series of four stories available only to subscribers this week.
