Compensation Survey

2016 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 2016. The last member compensation survey was carried out in May 2014. 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 2014 figures.

The median base salary for all respondents and all responsibility point levels is $94,000 and ranges from a low of $60,000 at the 200 to 249 point level to $165,000 at the 800+ point level. Compared to 2014 median base salary values, some point level ranges recorded a decline while others have increased or remained stable. The median base salary for the entire sample has increased 3% 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.
