Is your salary too low? May be it is time to move.


Salaries accross Canada 2014 - Click to see the full mapsSalaries in different cities vary. What someone makes as an accountant in Levis, Quebec, isn't the same as someone in the same role in Montreal. The same goes for a warehouse worker or Barrie, Ontario or Toronto. Where you live affects how much money you make – and while that says nothing about quality of life, it is good to know.

If you’re curious about the bottom line made by your contemporaries in different cities across Canada, or in different professions, Randstad Canada’s National Compensation Survey has the information you need to start your career, or move into another.

We have two ways for you to review this data – one is a set of infographics, which scope out some of Canada’s most actively hired roles in cities across Canada and the other is the a series of salary guides which include our full data sets.

With the maps you can quickly scan the country and give yourself a picture of the differences between Vancouver, British Columbia to St. John’s, Newfoundland.
