8. Gerald Schwartz, CEO, Onex Corp.
2011 compensation: $14.1 million
The board at Onex Corp., one of Canada's foremost private equity firms, must have liked what Gerald Schwartz got done in 2011. That year, during which Onex's stock price rose nearly $4 per share, Schwartz was paid a modest $1.29 million salary, but was festooned with one of the largest bonuses in the country. Schwartz received an extra $12.85 million, more on its own than the entire annual compensation of the two previous CEOs to appear on this list.
