Saskatchewan Wage Survey
2013 Saskatchewan Wage Survey
The 2013 wage survey provides wage information for 346 common occupations in Saskatchewan, helping employers provide competitive compensation and job seekers make informed career decisions.
The Ministry of the Economy commissioned Saskatoon-based Insightrix Research Inc. to conduct the survey from October to December 2013. More than 1,500 employers participated, representing 125,600 employees or 23 per cent of the workforce.
The 2013 survey is the 6th one since government began the two-year cycle of surveys in 2002. For the first time, the survey includes job vacancy rates on 280 occupations in Saskatchewan. It also includes 18 individual sector reports.
