56. It is recommended that the salary classification of a Warden of a maximum security institution reflect the responsibilities of the position and be such that it will allow for his/her transfer back to the line operation after the completion of a staff assignment (Regional or National Headquarters) without a financial penalty.


The salary classifications of all Wardens' positions are determined in accordance with the Executive Group classification plans for the Government of Canada. Various elements, or factors, are considered in the classification of these staff including Know-how, Accountability and Problem Solving.

CSC regularly does move senior managers on various assignments and there is no negative impact on the individual's financial situation.
