Detailed information for 2004 (Ontario)




One Time

Record number:


This survey will measure compensation paid to employees in various occupational categories in both the private and public sectors.

Data release - The survey was never conducted and has been cancelled; no data were collected.


Statistics Canada is conducting this survey on behalf of the Joint Compensation Advisory Committee (JCAC), a committee of the National Joint Council. This committee includes representatives from the Treasury Board of Canada, other Public Service employers and bargaining agents. The committee's mandate is to identify compensation research requirements for occupations in the federal public service.

This pilot survey will measure compensation paid to employees in various occupational categories in Ontario in both the private and public sectors and examine the feasibility of making this an on-going national survey. Information from a national survey will be used during contract negotiations between employers and bargaining agents in the Federal Government. It will also serve as a valuable source of information for independent businesses in assessing the current market compensation packages being offered to occupational groups across Canada.
