KPMG Unveils Compensation Survey For Canada
KPMG LLP Canada will disclose the results of its annual nation-wide Salary Survey and TSE 300 Compensation Survey tomorrow at a breakfast meeting tomorrow morning in Toronto. The survey looks at trends across many industries in Canada and breaks compensation information down by job, geographic region, and company revenue.
According to the survey, salaries are higher than predicted a year ago, in most areas, with the highest salary increases occurring in the professional and business services. The high tech industry is included in this booming sector and the salary increases occurring in this area are being attributed, in part, to a shortage of programmers and other IT professionals.
Canadian companies are also following the United States’ lead for executive compensation the survey reports. Base pay is no longer the primary part of an executive’s total salary.
For more information about the breakfast meeting, call Jennifer Hind at 416.777.3243 or email her at Jennifer Hind.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
