Compensation Survey

2014 Compensation Survey Results

We are pleased to present the findings of a comprehensive compensation and benefits survey of APEGBC members undertaken by the association in May 2014. The most recent member compensation survey was carried out in May 2012. Reported base salary by responsibility point level is illustrated in Exhibit 1a. This analysis provides both high and low; decile and quartile values to illustrate the range of base salary paid to individuals with the same responsibility point range and compares this with the 2012 figures.

The median base salary for all respondents and all responsibility point levels is $91,000 and ranges from a low of $59,500 at the 200-249 point to $167,500 at the 800+ point level. Compared to 2012 median base salary values, most point level ranges have recorded an increase, and the median base salary for the entire sample has increased over 4% over the two-year period.

If you have not already done so, you can determine your own responsibility point value by using APEGBC's Employment Responsibility Evaluation. Please refer to the Benchmark Employment Descriptions to confirm the accuracy of your responsibility point level assessment.
